Williams Lake

Williams Lake is a popular lowland trout lake.  WDFW will be stocking the lake annually with Rainbow and Cutthroat trout fry which will drive the fishery from this point forward.  Modest numbers of Tiger Trout are also stocked annually.  Williams is a great family fishing water, and current improvements to the WDFW access site will make launching a boat a lot easier.  This lake typically fishes well all spring long and again in September.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good
Limited shoreline access at the WDFW access. Anglers typically fish this lake from boats or from the docks at the resorts on the lake.
