Newman Lake

Twelve miles northeast of Spokane about a mile from the Idaho border, this year-round open season spot has something for everybody: largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, perch, catfish, plus an occasional eastern brook trout. In addition, Newman has been stocked with tiger muskies and provides an excellent trophy fishery for this elusive fish.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
Anglers can fish from the fishing dock located at the WDFW Access. Shoreline fishing is also available on the north end of the lake at the McKenzie Conservation Area that offers both boat-in and hike-in access.
