Goose Lake

Goose Lake is a popular mountain lake for trout, eastern brook, brown trout, rainbows, and coastal cutthroat.  Catchable size cutthroat, rainbow, and brown trout are stocked annually.  Fishing is best from a small boat, float tube, or raft.

There is a U.S. Forest Sevice campground and boat ramp.  Electric motors on boats only.

The lake is open to fishing  year round but access to the lake is usually snowbound until late spring.  Snow returns and limits or closes access around mid-November.
