San Juan Island Fishing

Grab yourself a rod, reel and cast away for some of the finest fishing in the country. Hike up those hip-waders and venture into the clear rushing streams and secluded babbling brooks. From rocky shores to alpine forests, hundreds of pristine lakes, ponds and secret fishing holes lie waiting to be discovered – the perfect test for your fly, or bottom fishing skills. Egg Lake, located on the northeast end of San Juan Island, offers opportunities for largemouth bass and rainbow trout, with good rainbow fishing in April and May. Sportsman’s Lake, is a 66 acres lake located 3 miles northwest of Friday Harbor. Contact the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife for regulation updates and news. Their fishing hotline is (360) 902-2500 and their Shellfish Regulation Hotline (866) 880-5431. Licenses can be obtained at Ace Hardware or West Marine, block from the Tucker House.
