Located five miles northwest of Okanogan on Buzzard Lake Road. There is a WDFW access site with an unimproved boat launch and camping area. Buzzard Lake can from time to time suffer winterkill, making it necessary to plant catchable rainbows before season opener. If over winter survival is good, then expect to catch rainbows in the 12-18 inch range.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
Special fishing restrictions:
- Selective gear rules in effect
