Washburn Island Pond

Located five (5) miles east of Brewster off Hwy 17.  Bluegill and largemouth bass are predominant species and can provide good fishing for largemouth bass during spring and early summer, and for bluegill throughout the summer months.  Recent stocking of 1-3 lbs bass has produced a popular warmwater fishing opportunity.  A Colville tribal fishing license is required to fish from the shore on reservation property.  Boat anglers only need a Washington state license.  A Douglas Co PUD boat launch is located at the lake.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
Limited due to weed beds making casting to open water difficult
