Kachess Lake (4,540 acres): Situated just north of I-5, about five miles west of Cle Elum Lake. With a year-round open season, Kachess should be fair for 8- to 12-inch kokanee by early June. Rainbows, cutthroat, and burbot are also taken. There is a 16-fish catch limit for kokanee in addition to a 2-fish, 12-inch minimum size trout daily limit. The lake is closed to fishing for bull trout; please carefully release any bull trout that are hooked. This is a very popular lake with good camping and good boat launching area.
