About nine miles southeast of Bellingham. Fishing opportunities includes stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass and Yellow Perch.
This lake is one of only four waters in Whatcom County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers, but can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
A WDFW boat launch is available at the south end of the lake.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
