This deep lake provides one of the few opportunities in Okanogan County to fish for Lahontan cutthroat.  Fishing is best in May and June and then again in September and October.  In the hotter summer months of July and August, fish deep with weighted flies and lures to get down to the fish.  A WDFW campsite with gravel boat launch is available. Expect cutthroat in the 12-18 inch range.
