Along the route to Mount Baker, Silver Lake is 30 miles from Bellingham and is an excellent opportunity to get away from the hustle-and-bustle of the city.
The lake is one of only four Whatcom County waters managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Fishing is good from the opener in late-April until late-October when it closes for stocked Rainbow Trout and Coastal Cutthroat Trout.
The fishery is easily accessible via public boat launches at the WDFW access and Silver Lake Park (Whatcom County Parks). Overnight stays (tent and cabins) and boat rental facilities are also available at the park.
This feature shows the general location of the selected body of water. Directions may not include routes to boat launches or other water access sites. Check below for access sites or read the description for specific access information. Please do not trespass on private property.
