Ell Lake
Photo of Ell LakeLocated twelve (12) miles southeast of Tonasket on Aeneas Valley Road.  Recent extremely low water levels at Ell have precluded any substantial fish plants in recent years.  In 2011, a small group (250) of fingerling rainbows were planted in Ell.  No reports on whether those fish survived the winter.  The is a WDFW access area loctaed at the lake, but boats/tubes must be carried to the shoreline.  This lake was planted in spring 2013 with catchable rainbows and should provide some fall fishing this year.
