Chopaka Lake

One of two fly fishing only lakes within Okanogan County.  A very popular fishery in a scenic setting.  There are two campgrounds located on the lake, one owned by DNR and one owned by BLM.  Two small graveled boat launches are available.  Expect rainbow trout in the 12-18 inch range.  Fall fishing during the months of September and October should be good this year for rainbows in the 14-18 inch range.
