Guide To Fishing At Silver Lake
Considered one of the top bass fishing lakes in WA, Silver Lake is a 2,300-acre lake in the southwest part of the state that also offers crappie, trout, sunfish, perch and salmon fishing. The lake is stocked annually with rainbow trout.
A couple of options are available for boat launching. The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife maintains a single-lane, concrete ramp off SR-504. The RV park, resorts and some camping areas also offer launching to guests. Bass fisherman love to work the shallow water along the shore, and there is nearly 20 miles of shoreline to explore. Access to the shore for fishing from the bank is quite poor.
