Spectacle Lake

Spectacle Lake is a gorgeous destination, popular for family outtings.  It is primarily known for consistently good trout fishing.  Expect rainbow of 10 to 12 inches, with good numbers of carryover trout to 15 inches when you try Spectacle.  It is a long narrow lake, and in the shallows you can treat yourself to fast-action fishing for largemouth bass, that are typically small but really fun to catch.  There are good numbers of big bluegill (6 to 8 inches) and small yellow perch in Spectacle as well.  The occasional brown trout is also caught on the lake.  There are two WDFW launch sites on the lake and three resorts that offer full services.  Spectacle Lake is located seven miles northwest of Tonasket on the Loomis-Oroville Road.
