Cle Elum Lake Mackinaw and Kokanee

Cle Elum Lake in Kittitas County is a beautiful lake filled with MASSIVE fish! This fishing spot is located off Hwy I-90 at an elevation of 2,200 feet, and holds a variety of trout species like lake trout (mackinaw) and kokanee. The lake trout don't have the numbers or size of Lake Chelan, but they do reach up to the twenty pound range. The lake is also being developed for a sockeye return, so watch for slot size limits on the kokanee. This lake is an under-fished kokanee lake, so jump on it!
