Chukar Lake
Chukar Lake is located within the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge (CNWR) south of Potholes Reservoir.   WDFW fishing regulations and licenses apply to all lakes within this federal refuge.  Vehicle or walk-in access to these lakes is managed by the USFWS.  WDFW recommends that anglers review access and other regulations on the CNWR website (http://www.fws.gov/columbia/).  To access this lake, anglers must either hike from the Corral Lake parking lot or paddle a small boat or float tube through the upper two lakes (Corral and Blythe).  Chukar Lake was rehabilitated in 2007 and since has fished mostly well for rainbow trout ranging in size from 12-20 inches.
