This lake is three miles south of Anacortes, just west of Heart Lake Road and north of Rosario Road. Most anglers visit Erie to catch abundant stocked Rainbow Trout, but residen Largemouth Bass and Yellow Perch can also be caught.
This lake is one of only four waters in Skagit County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers, can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
