Upper Hampton Lake is located within the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge (CNWR) south of Potholes Reservoir. WDFW fishing regulations and licenses apply to all lakes within this federal refuge. Vehicle or walk-in access to these lakes is managed by the USFWS. WDFW recommends that anglers review access and other regulations on the CNWR website. Anglers must make a short hike from the Lower Hampton Lake access area to fish Upper Hampton Lake.
Upper Hampton Lake was rehabilitated with the aquatic pesticide rotenone in 2014 to remove Pumpkinseed Sunfish and restore the popular trout fishery. Rainbow Trout fingerlings were stocked into the lake in 2015. These fish will grow to between 11-13 inches by the spring of 2016. Larger carryover trout begin to show in the following years.
