Banks Lake (24,900 acres): This is the best walleye water in the region and is popular with anglers statewide. Kokanee have been planted for several years, but have received only light pressure from anglers. A cooperative rainbow trout rearing project between WDFW, an Electric City sportsmen's group and Coulee City Chamber of Commerce offers improved trout fishing, with fish running to 5 pounds. Largemouth bass fishing should be good to excellent. Abundant smallmouth bass up to 4 pounds are available along rocky shoreline areas. Yellow perch and lake whitefish are very abundant. Crappie fishing will be poor-to-fair. Several public access areas are well developed, including a state park about mid-way up the lake and a city park at Coulee City on the south end.
