Nestled amongst the beauty of mountains and forests, Noxon Reservoir is very easy on the eyes and provides visitors with excellent out door adventure options. Boating and fishing are very popular at this 6,100-acre lake in the west-central part of the state, at Trout Creek. There is very limited access for fishing from the bank along the 60 miles of shoreline, so fishing from a boat is the best option. The Trout Creek boat launch ramp is open to the public during the warm season. Noxon Rapids Reservoir is considered a top-notch bass lake for both largemouth and smallmouth. Popular as well are northern pike, trout, perch and kokanee. There is no marina or rental boats at the lake. Ice fishing in winter might reward you with a giant northern pike or plenty of perch and walleye for a fish fry.
