Silver Lake
Photo of Silver Lake

Located just outside the town of Medical Lake, Silver Lake is a year-round open season spot that has something for everybody. Fishing for warmwater species including largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and perch can be decent in the spring, but typically picks up as the water temperatures rise. In addition, Silver has been stocked with tiger muskies and provides an excellent trophy fishery for this elusive fish.  Silver Lake is also a popular winter fishery for yellow perch in years with safe ice conditions.
