No catch limits at three Okanogan County lakes

Three lakes in Okanogan County are now a free for all on fish with no catch limits.

State Fish and Wildlife says licensed anglers can catch and keep as many game fish as they want at Alta Lake, Fish Lake and Schallow Pond, which are slated for rehab next month to treat them with rotenone to eradicate undesirable fish species.

“There’s no reason why anglers can’t catch as many trout, perch and other gamefish as they can find prior to the lake treatments,” Jeff Korth, a state Fish and Wildlife fish manager in Ephrata said in a news release. “There are still some nice fish in those waters, along with the bullheads and goldfish.”

The no-limits fishing opportunity will run through Sept. 30 on Alta Lake, and through Oct. 22 on Fish Lake and Schallow Pond.

All three lakes will close to fishing before the treatments begin. Anglers will be prohibited from gathering fish from those waters during and after rehabilitations.
