About 2 miles north of Manson, just north of Dry and Roses Lakes.

Late spring plants of fingerling Rainbow Trout typically provide good to excellent fishing the following spring for fish in the 12 to 16 inch range. Catchable sized Rainbow Trout are typically stocked as well just before the lake opens.

A good population of Largemouth Bass in the 12 to 15 inch range can provide good fishing at times and good numbers of large Yellow Perch (up to 13 inches) are also available. 

The former public access area at the east end of the lake is no longer controlled by WDFW. Private campgrounds are located at both ends of the lake.

Two-pole fishing is allowed
