Silcott Pond

A small impoundment off the Snake River near the bottom of Alpowa Grade (west of Clarkston). Silcott Pond is no longer stocked with Rainbow Trout, and it provides limited fishing opportunity. It is uncertain whether this pond has any fish access from the Snake River or whether other species are available.

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.
