Horseshoe Lake

Horseshoe Lake was a part of the Lewis River until it was cut off from the river in 1940 during the construction of HWY 99. Water is pumped into the lake from a 16" culvert. The lake is managed as a catchable trout and warmwater species lake.   

Located in the city of Woodland, with a year-round open fishing season. It is stocked with catchable-size Rainbow Trout, plus some larger rainbow broodstock.

The lake also supports populations of Largemouth Bass and a few other warmwater fish. 

A city park provides ample fishable shoreline plus a public boat launch.

Grass carp have been stocked in this lake. Fishing for or retaining grass carp is prohibited.
