Coffeepot Lake

This lake is best known for its rainbow trout fishing.  It is very popular with fly anglers in the spring and early summer providing great chironomid fishing for the months of March, April and May. 

Despite its reputation as a trout fishery this lake provides fishing opportunities for yellow perch, black crappie and largemouth bass.  This lake is in a remote location but there is a BLM Campground and boat launch available. The campground allows anglers to stay overnight and enjoy the lake after the long trek to reach their angling destination.  The campground operates on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Special fishing restrictions:

  • Selective gear rules in effect

Shoreline access: Good
This lake has a BLM owned boat ramp and campground. Good shoreline access exists on the portions of shoreline owned by BLM. The walking can be tricky but a little work allows an angler to have access to some good fishing opportunity
