With plenty of places to camp, Ross Lake is a great get-away for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy camping, boating and fishing. Anglers wanting to catch big rainbow trout should seriously consider this 12,000-acre, excellent trout fishery. Located lake on the US/Canada border, in Ross Lake National Recreation Area. Over 50 miles of shoreline present anglers with lots of choices. Steeper banks seem to deliver bigger fish than shallow beaches or deep in the river channel.
