Lodge Lake

Lodge Lake is a popular lake nestled amongst beautiful old growth forest. Lodge Lake was named by the Mountaineers after the lodge they built there in the 1900's. The fishing can be excellent for Rainbow Trout of various sizes.

Getting here:

To access Lodge Lake, take I-90 to exit 52 and drive to the end of the road to find the sign marking the Pacific Crest Trail. From the parking area, follow the trail and soon you will be walking on the ski slopes with excellent mountain views. Once you reach the high point of the trail at about 3400', you will enter old growth forest for the remainder of the hike. The hike is about 4 miles with 1000' elevation gain, round trip. Lodge Lake is a great family hike.

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.
