Stocked Rainbow Trout and native Coastal Cutthroat Trout are primarily targeted at Cottage Lake. Additional fishing opportunities include Yellow Perch, Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, and Brown Bullhead.
This lake is one of only ten waters in King 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.
The lake can be accessed through Cottage Lake Park (King County Parks and Recreation) on the north shore. Car-toppers can be carried to the lake across a short graveled section of shoreline and a fishing pier is available for shore-bound anglers.
