Kokanee Lake is sometimes called Lower Cushman Lake. It is open to fishing year-round. The lake is stocked in April and May with larger catchable-size (11"-13") rainbow trout and again in the fall with good numbers of larger rainbow trout to provide a fishery through the winter. THough there has been periodic construction activity at the Tacoma Power access, the lake is fishable by boat with limited shore access. Trout tend to school near the access imedieately after the plants.
