What to fish for...
Fishing for Beardslee rainbow trout, cutthroat and kokanee at Lake Crescent in Washington.
Nestled in the Olympic Peninsula, Lake Crescent is a dream destination for photographers and anglers. The setting is gorgeous and the fishing is outstanding. The fishing is limited to catch and release only, with artificial lures which have a single, barbless hook. Native Beardslee rainbow trout, cutthroat and kokanee all reside in the crystal clear water and grow big and healthy. This 5,100-acre lake in the northwest corner of the state, 15 miles west of Port Angeles, WA has a campground and a lodge, both on the water. There are about 26 miles of shoreline, and the lake sits at an elevation of 580 ft above sea level. Areas around the Lake Crescent Lodge, Fairholme Campground, and along some of the roads adjacent to the lake are areas for fishing from the bank.
