Twenty-eight miles north of Spokane along the west side of U.S. Highway 395. This lake opens the 4th Saturday in April and runs through October 31st. The previous state record lake trout (30 lbs., 4 oz.) came out of here back in the 1960s.

There are also Largemouth and Smallmouth bass, Brown Bullheads, Yellow Perch, Bluegill, and a few other warm water species.
