With 26,900 surface acres and 91 miles of shoreline, there is plenty of places to wet a line. Located in central Washington, at Coulee City, the elevation is 1,570 ft above sea level. There are several public access areas for fishing from the bank. Boat launch ramps, campgrounds, RV parks, rental kayaks, canoes and boats, restaurants and stores are at, or nearby, the lake to compliment your stay for a quick fishing trip or an extended vacation.
