Badger Lake was rehabilitated in fall 2015 to rid the lake of illegally stocked bass and sunfish. The lake was stocked with catchable size rainbows prior to the 2016 opener. WDFW will annually stock both rainbow and cutthroat trout fry which will drive the fishery from that point forward.
When kept clean of nuisance fish species, this lake is one of the best opening day trout lakes in the state. The recent rehabilitation should restore Badger to the rainbow and cutthroat trout fishery it has historically been known for.
