 This lake is located eight miles southwest of Wenatchee, about a mile northwest of Squilchuck State Park.  This small reservoir is stocked annually in the spring with "catchable" sized Rainbow Trout and usually has a fair carry-over of Rainbow Trout catchables and fingerlings plants. Anglers can also expect to catch an occasional Tiger Trout.

Fishing prospects calendar

Rainbow trout

Fishing success for Rainbow Trout is generally best in the spring when thousands of fish are stocked statewide, but they can be caught year-round in most waters with a little patience and persistence. Success remains high into June and gradually declines as water temperatures increase and fish move offshore to stay cool. Fish that escaped the spring harvest return to the nearshore areas in the fall as waters cool off. Some waters may also be stocked again in the fall further boosting catch rates.
