Beaver Lake

This lake is adjacent to Watson Lake in the upper Tucannon River drainage.  The water source from the Tucannon River runs through Beaver Lake before it enters Watson Lake.  Beaver Lake is a small man-made lake that has become a sediment trap so it is silted in and has lots of vegetation growing in the lake and along the shorelines.  WDFW no longer stocks this lake.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good - all public access, but lots of brush and grass covering the shoreline.

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.
