Wenatchee Lake Information


Wenatchee Lake (2,445 acres): This natural lake 15 miles north of Leavenworth should produce small kokanee beginning in April, with a generous catch limit on kokanee. Anglers are reminded to carefully release all bull trout (Dolly Varden) caught. Bull trout are a species of concern and thus their season is closed throughout most of the state. Wenatchee Lake is the main rearing area for these native char in the Wenatchee basin. The August anadromous sockeye salmon fishery that has taken place in the past is uncertain; check local newspapers or the regional WDFW office for the latest info. Several campgrounds and access areas surround the lake.
