Yokum Lake

Six miles north of Ruby, across the Pend Oreille River, and up LeClerc Creek Road. This lake lies partly within the Colville National Forest. The lake season starts the 4th Saturday in April and runs through October 31st. Cutthroat trout fry plants produce nice catches.

Road access to the south end of the lake is provided by Stimson Lumber Company, but the road is gated and can remained closed well into May depending on snowpack and road conditions.  It may also be closed at any time due to road damage caused by vehicles, and closes annually on November 1, in any case.

To protect breeding common loons, it is unlawful to use lead weights or lead jigs that measure 1.5 inches or less along the longest axis.

Two-pole fishing is allowed

Shoreline access: Good - Shoreline access is plentiful, but trees and brush limit casting to a few areas.
