Alta Lake

This scenic, deep lake is just a couple of miles from Pateros and is the first trout lake encountered as you enter the Methow Valley.  Be prepared to catch some fat rainbow trout of exceptional size and maybe some kokanee, too.  Trolling lures or spinners baited with worms is popular here and there is very good shore access.  There is a State Park and boat launch on the north shore, and at the opposite end at Whistlin’ Pine Ranch.
