Shiner Lake

Shiner 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.  Shiner Lake is a very good warmwater fishery for Largemouth Bass and in certain years panfish.  Anglers should know that during the summertime aquatic vegetation growth can affect shoreline and boat angling success.  WDFW recommends anglers fish Hutchinson Lake as well to maximize their opportunity.  Hutchinson Lake has a boat ramp and is attached to Shiner Lake via a small waterway which is navigable by a small boat.  Shiner Lake is best fished from a small boat; however, please note that internal combustion motors are prohibited.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
There is some shoreline access on Shiner Lake if anglers are willing to hike. Hutchinson Lake has more shore access near the boat ramp and there is a dock next to the ramp.
