Guide To Fishing At Baker Lake
AKA: Baker River Reservoir
With excellent fishing for kokanee salmon, Baker Lake is a great fishing destination in spring, early summer and fall. This 4,800-acre lake, in the northwest corner of the state in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, is open from early April to the end of October.
The lake is 9 miles long with over 20 miles of shoreline. There is great camping and RV hookups at the lake. Stunning views are the backdrop as fishing enthusiasts fish for trout, whitefish and salmon. While there is plenty of access for fishing from the bank, kokanee and sockeye are most often caught from a boat in the deeper regions of the lake. Boats can be launched at PSE Baker Lake Boat Launch, and some of the campgrounds. There are no marinas or boat rental at the lake.
