Five miles northeast of Bellingham. Fishing opportunities include stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Kokanee and Largemouth Bass.
This lake is one of only four waters in Whatcom County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers, but can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
There is a WDFW access with a toilet and a boat launch on the west end of the lake.
Two-pole fishing is allowed
Shoreline access: Good - Shoreline and small pier at WDFW access
