Aeneas Lake

It's fly fishing only here and the rules even prohibit the use of electric motors. The daily limit is one trout.

Angler notes: Campsites available. Trout to 18 inches are fairly common early until hot weather drives them deeper in the 60-foot center hole. Gets weedy and blue-green algae blooms can occur.

Open water: 61 acres.

Season: Last Saturday in April to October 31.

Angling quarry here: Rainbow and brown trout.

Stocking for 2008: 3,000 catchable rainbows and 1,078 brown trout fry.

Special rules: Season plus fly fishing only, no motors, no minimum size limit and one trout per day limit. For other game-fish, statewide size and bag limits apply.

Boat launch: WDFW gravel ramp on east side.

Getting there: Take Highway 20 to the Okanogan River valley. South of Tonasket turn left on Highway 7 and drive north to Pine Creek Road. Turn left and drive up to lake.
