Star Lake

Star Lake is essentially trout water, but anglers should not overlook the warmwater fishing on these lakes. Star Lake has largemouths, smallmouths, and panfish. Look for fish along weededges, shoreline cover, tributary mouths, and rocky areas.

Lake trout and brown trout have been stocked in Star Lake, but this 208-acre water is essentially a rainbow trout and landlocked salmon fishery.  Annual stockings number 2,000 rainbows measuring nine inches and 1,000 salmon measuring 6.5 inches.  Because nearly three quarters of the lake has private development, anglers find that the best fishing opportunities are in the spring and fall when the fish are active and the campers are inactive.  Access requiring a 75-yard carry is available just of State Route 3.  Trolling flies, wabblers and worms, and minnow plugs is the most popular technique, but drifting a jig and minnow or a spinner and worm is also effective.  Because of numerous bays and arms, anglers can find fishable water here even on windy days.  Star Lake is open to year-round angling.
