Located south of Port Townsend this 70 acre lake is encompassed by Anderson Island State Park. It is one of the few lowland lakes in western Washington that yields a lake-reared Rainbow Trout fishery from fry plants as opposed to catchable sized plants. Carry overs from each spring fishery survive to their second season and provide opportunity to catch fish 2 to 3 pounds as well.
In recent years there is a potential for the lake to be closed to access due to toxic algae blooms. This generally occurs during late spring and/or summer months. Prior to recreating in or at Andersen Lake an individual should consult this website http://www.jeffersoncountypublichealth.org/723/Lake-Status or call (360)385-9444 to determine if there are any restrictions on recreating.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
