Nine miles northwest of Arlington, just east of the SR-9/SR-534 junction. Fishing opportunities include stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Coastal Cutthroat Trout, Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, and the occasional Black Crappie.
This lake is one of only four waters in Skagit 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, can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
Parking is limited. A WDFW access at the south end has a boat launch and toilet.
