Jumpoff Joe Lake
Photo of Jumpoff Joe Lake

Eight miles south of Chewelah just off Highway US 395. This lake opens the 4th Saturday in April and runs through October 31st. Catchable-size rainbow and brown trout plants should provide some action here. Largemouth bass and yellow perch also do fair despite a goldfish population.

A WDFW access on the east shore has a boat ramp. A resort offers boat launching, moorage and rentals, camping, RV spaces, and a variety of other services.
