Quail Lake is located within the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge (CNWR) south of Potholes Reservoir. WDFW fishing regulations and licenses apply to all lakes within this federal refuge. Vehicle or walk-in access to these lakes is managed by the USFWS. WDFW recommends that anglers review access and other regulations on the CNWR website. Access to the lake is hike-in only (~1/2 mile). Fishing at Quail Lake has been excellent the past five years for nice sized Rainbow Trout mostly 14 inches and larger.
