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 are in effect (single barbless hooks, no bait), with a trout daily limit of one fish. Fishing should be excellent for ten to 13-inch rainbow trout with some carry-overs in the 13- to 16-inch range. The lake is also stocked with jumbo rainbow trout (1-1.5 lbs each). Internal combustion motors are prohibited.
Special Notice: 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 1st 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!
