East Lake has a variety of fishing opportunities for kokanee, rainbow trout, and large browns. This lake is the place to be in the summer, it's busy and has a great hatch during the summer. Just after ice out, the southern side of the lake is ripe for hungry rainbows and big browns in the evening. On the north side, the lake is nearly 160' deep and provides home to a large number of kokanee. Large browns can be hunted on the south side of the lake in the summer once the large underwater grasses have grown in.
Be sure to check the Fishing Regulations and Emergency Rules for this area.
