Antilon Lake (Upper)

Located about 11 miles northwest of Chelan, this lake is stocked each spring with fingerling Brown Trout.  Recent angler reports indicate that fishing for Brown Trout has been poor.  WDFW will continue to monitor this lake to determine the cause of this problem and how to improve this fishery into the future.  Internal combustion engines are prohibited per Chelan County ordinance 85-36.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good - Public land borders the entire lake, but emergent aquatic vegetation allows only fair access.

Fishing prospects calendar

Black crappie

Fishing improves throughout the Spring, peaking during the spawn. Summer is a slight lull, while Fall sees an improvement as waters cool, vegetation dies back, and prey becomes more available. During winter, the bite is slower, but anglers can have great success fishing through the ice when conditions are safe.

Pumpkinseed Sunfish

Pumpkinseed Sunfish are ubiquitous in most lowland lakes and readily caught year-round. Fishing is best in the spring and summer, peaking during the spawn in June. Fish move offshore into deeper waters through the fall as water temperatures cool making it more difficult to target them. Winter is the most difficult season to catch Pumpkinseed, but persistent anglers can find nice-sized schools offshore.
