Sprague Lake

This large lake is approximately two miles west of the City of Sprague, and bordering the south side of I-90, is shared by Adams (673 acres) and Lincoln (1203 acres) counties. The lake provides good opportunities for large Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, and Bluegill Sunfish, as well as both Brown Bullhead and Channel Catfish.

The regulations have now changed allowing anglers to harvest 5 trout of any size daily.  The lake is open year round, however areas of the lake are closed during certain parts of the year.  Anglers should check the Washington Sport Fishing Rules pamphlet for additional rules and season information.
