The first is the last Saturday in April and remains open through the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The second opener is the Friday after Thanksgiving, "Black Friday opener". The lake remains open through February.
Only the north lake is stocked with trout. Thousands of catchable rainbow and hundreds of rainbow broodstock are planted in late December, early January. Broodstock can be to eleven pounds. Thousands of catchable rainbow are planted prior to the April opener, including triploids, and again in June. In November 2000 jumbo rainbow, about 1.25 lbs each are planted for the Black Friday opener.
Largemouth Bass, bluegill, and some crappie are also caught here.There is limited very rocky shore access available and a rough WDFW unimproved boat launch on the north side of the lake.
