Stan Coffin Lake
Photo of Stan Coffin LakeStan Coffin Lake is located in WDFW's Quincy Wildlife Area.  It is the northern-most lake along the main access road.  This lake is a very good warmwater fishery for Largemouth Bass, Bluegill Sunfish, and Channel Catfish.  Larger bass and Walleye style fishing boats can be launched at Stan Coffin.  However, anglers should know that during the summertime Stan Coffin Lake is mostly unfishable due to excessive aquatic vegetation growth and decreased water levels.  Several hundred Largemouth Bass in Stan Coffin Lake have Floy tags implanted along their dorsal fin.  These tags are used to monitor growth of bass.  If you catch a marked fish please leave the tag in the fish.  In addition, several black barrels were placed in Stan Coffin Lake in order to serve as spawning sites for Channel Catfish.  If you see a barrel please do not move it as there may be a Channel Catfish inside.  Anglers should also know that access to Stan Coffin Lake is through the north gate only.  The south gate is closed indefinitely due to vandalish problems.  Both gates close the end of September so fishing in the fall is walk-in only.
