Sullivan Lake

(1,291 acres)Located approximately four miles southeast of Metaline Falls in Colville National Forest. This lake has a year-round open season. Kokanee will likely average 9-10 inches this year and occasional rainbow, tiger trout, and cutthroat are also available. Burbot are popular, and winter ice fishing for them provides a temporary cure for cabin fever.

The adjacent Forest Service campground has boat access. Remember to check the Fishing in Washington Regulations pamphlet prior to fishing.

See Washington State Parks website for ADA accessibility information.
