Quincy Lake

Quincy Lake is located in WDFW's Quincy Wildlife Area near Quincy.  This opening day (March 1st) lake has fished very well the past three years.  Fishing is excellent during the first month of the opener and then is fair-good through late spring.  Several fly fishers like to fish Quincy Lake a month or two after the opener to catch-and-release nice sized trout.  Trout size is excellent with fish 12-20+ inches in length.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good - Most of the shoreline is fishable.

Fishing prospects calendar

Rainbow trout

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.
