Green Lakes

Green Lake is 45 acres and Lower Green 9 acres. They are located about 5 miles northwest of Omak. Enjoy catch-and-release fishing. Boat launch and restrooms on site. Disability access.

This is another split season lake, so it is popular in the spring for those like to catch and release their trout, and in the winter for
those who like to catch and keep them through the ice.  The catch and release season is from March 1st through November 30th, and the winter season is from December 1st through the end of February. Many of the bigger rainbow are caught just after the ice comes off the lake, typically in March, during the catch and release season.  Some of the rainbow can weigh a couple of pounds then, but most of the rainbow from Green Lake are in the 11- to 13-inch class.  There is a WDFW access area with campsites and a concrete boat ramp.  Fly fishers like to troll Wooly Buggers here in the spring and trollers of standard gear will use spinners or Rapalas or Flatfish.  Through the ice anglers will offer the trout dough baits, worms, maggots or meal worms.
