Devil’s Lake Fishing

Devils Lake is stocked annually with hatchery raised rainbow trout. Wild Coho salmon also migrate up the D-River (The World’s Shortest River) to spawn in Devil’s Lake. They are however a protected species in Devils Lake and are not legal to possess. Possession of any Coho Salmon from the lake is prohibited.

Possession of Grass Carp is also prohibited. Bass fishing used to be popular on Devil’s Lake, but some feel the addition of the planted grass carp has hurt the bass fishing. The grass carp were planted to help control the vegetation in the lake.
