Historically, this was one of the best opening day trout lakes in the state. However, illegal introductions of largemouth and smallmouth bass in this lake have limited the success of the trout fishery the past few years. Although anglers success will likely not measure up to historical standards, some rainbow trout will be available for harvest.
Unfortunately the selfishness of a few "Bucket Biologists" has limited the overall quality of this trout fishery. In the near future WDFW will propose and may implement fish management actions to correct the bass issue in this lake and restore it to the rainbow and cutthroat trout fishery it has been known for.
