Baker Lake

Six miles northeast of Concrete. Open to fishing from the 4th Saturday in April to October 31. Fishing in this Baker River reservoir can be excellent for kokanee in April, May, and June and again in the fall. There is a six-inch minimum, 18-inch maximum size limit on trout and kokanee. An expanding sockeye population may provide frequent fishing opportunities in the future. The duration and timing of the sockeye fishery varies with in-season abundance. Baker Lake is closed to the taking of bull trout/Dolly Varden.

Additionally, a radius of 200 feet surrounding the pump discharge at the south end of the lake is closed to all fishing.

USFS Baker Lake / Middle Fork Nooksack  in the Mt. Baker National Recreation Area (NRA) is an impressive mountain landscape on the southeast flanks of Mt. Baker's slopes offers year-round recreational fun. Find fishing, boating, camping and other recreational activities information here. Private resorts are also available.
