Silver Nail Lake
Photo of Silver Nail LakeLocated near Oroville.  A year round juvenile only water that provides good fishing for catchable size (10-11 inch) rainbow trout during the early spring and summer months.  Best fished from a small boat and/or float tube.  There is a WDFW parking area, but boats will need to be hand carried to lake edge.
