Special Notice: Due to access issues, Mud Lake will no longer be planted with jumbo or triploid trout. Instead, the lake will be planted with trout fingerlings that will need to grow for at least a year before they are of a catchable size!
The private property owner closed the Mud Lake access road from Highway 410. Public drive in access is only available via the 1701 Road and Cleman Mountain or the Garrett Canyon Road after May 1. These roads are often in poor condition and require a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Therefore, some anglers are hiking up to the lake from the Hwy via an access trail (footpath) that lies directly below the lake. Do not hike up the private access road from the Hwy, it is private property!
This small lake is seven miles northwest of Naches on the south side of Cleman Mountain, at a little over 2000 feet elevation. It has a year-round open season. Selective gear rules remain in effect (single barbless hooks, no bait), with a trout daily limit of one fish. Internal combustion motors are prohibited.
