Fan Lake boat ramp to close
June 19-23 for renovation

A public boat ramp owned by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) at Fan Lake in southwestern Pend Oreille County will be closed June 19-23 for minor renovations.

During the week long closure, a WDFW crew will remove and replace broken ramp planks and armor the edges of the new planks to help prevent future problems.

Other areas of Fan Lake will still be accessible for shore fishing while the boat access site is closed. The 73-acre lake, about 10 miles northeast of Deer Park, is stocked with rainbow trout, but also has crappie, bass, and perch.

Daniel Dziekan, WDFW eastern region access site manager, said the single lane ramp and small parking area make closing the site during construction necessary to ensure public safety. The use of internal combustion boat engines is prohibited on the lake, he noted.
