Upper Goose Lake

Upper Goose Lake is located south of Potholes Reservoir and adjacent to the western border of the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge.  This lake offers good warmwater fish for Walleye, bass, and sometimes panfish and Rainbow Trout.  Anglers should note that during the summertime the lower gate is locked and access is by walk-in only.  The reason the lower gate is locked during the summertime is to discourage garbage dumping, vandalism, and other illegal activities.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
The only good shoreline fishing is at the access site.
