Silver Lake

Silver Lake is an excellent fishery for Largemouth Bass. Catchable Rainbow Trout are planted in the spring. This lake also provides good fishing for Yellow Perch, Bluegill Sunfish, Brown Bullhead , and both Black Crappie and White Crappie. Check the Fishing in Washington regulations pamphlet for limits and size requirements for crappie.

There is a large population of Common Carp. Grass Carp have also been planted in the past but it is illegal to fish for or retain grass carp. The WDFW boat access has a single lane concrete ramp and a small dock and can be hard to find if signage is missed on SR-504. Private resorts also offer additional boat ramps and rentals.
