Lived in Spokane my whole life and have known this lake was not the place to go but I saw WDFG releasing Lahotian cuthroat 2 days ago and so I hit it. I do not know why they kept it a secret (releasing of the fish) but it payed off. I fished the bottom from the freeway side with a bobber and worm and holy cow, I landed 2 nice lahotians in 1 hour and then not a bite. I reccomend giving this place a try, maybe they are trying an experiment like on Omak lake, it worked great there. Watch out for the home owners and do not trespase as I found out, the freeway side is public and worked great.
