Located south of Winthrop right next to Big Twin Lake. A small lake that has a tendency to winterkill, requiring a catchable rainbow trout plant prior to the opener. A WDFW access area is located there with a steep gravel launch site. Anglers would be best to carry boats/tubes from the parking lot to the edge of the lake for launching. A winterkill event occurred in 2018 resulting in a loss of larger trout carried over from the previous year.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
- Selective gear rules in effect
Shoreline access: Good - Shore access by WDFW site, but is limited due to private property around most of the lake.

Fishing prospects calendar
Fishing success for Rainbow Trout is generally best in the spring when thousands of fish are stocked statewide, but they can be caught year-round in most waters with a little patience and persistence. Success remains high into June and gradually declines as water temperatures increase and fish move offshore to stay cool. Fish that escaped the spring harvest return to the nearshore areas in the fall as waters cool off. Some waters may also be stocked again in the fall further boosting catch rates.
