Washburn Island Pond

This shallow lake is just five miles north of Brewster, and is easily accessed from the road to Bridgeport.  It is an excellent place to find very good numbers of largemouth bass.  If you visit Washburn Island Pond in the spring and early summer you will be amazed at the number of bass that you will see.  It also has lots of bluegill.  Be sure to get here by early summer as the shallow lake will get choked with weeds as the water warms up.  Everything from top water plugs to plastic worms and creature baits will attract strikes from the bass.  There is a Douglas County PUD gravel launch that gets you on the water.  It is advised to fish this from a boat.  If you fish from shore you will need a Colville Tribal Fishing License.
