Soda Peaks Lake (Skamania County)

Soda Peaks Lake is in the Trapper Creek Wilderness. It is planted every other year with eastern brook and brown trout fingerlings by back pack. It has fair shoreline access but a float tube offers the best fishing opportunity. It is possible to day hike and fish the lake, but camping in the area for a couple of days provide the better opportunity to fish the lake during early morning and late evening. Lake is usually accessible by late May early June depending on snowmelt. Mosquitos can be quite bad until late summer.

Getting here:

The easiest route to get to Soda Peaks Lake is if you start at the Soda Peaks Trailhead off Forest road 54. The trail number is 133.
