Chambers Lake

Chambers Lake is a shallow weedy lake (actually two lakes connected by a non-navigable canal). Historically an attempt has been made to control aquatic vegetation with stocked grass carp, but none have been stocked since 2002. The lake is open year-round and offers good to fair fishing for naturally reproducing largemouth bass, yellow perch, brown bullhead catfish, and stocked channel catfish.  A relatively shallow lake, Chambers offers good opportunity for warm water "site-fishing".   Bag and size limits are set according to statewide regulations.

The WDFW access, which is operated and maintained by Thurston County Parks, has a boat launch and two toilets.  There is some shoreline access along the Chehalis-Western trail.  Internal combustion engines are prohibited.  

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
There is limited bank access on the Chehalis Western trail.
