Bobcats, moose, and bears are among the land-dwellers. If the water is more your speed you will be amazed by the views but also the white sturgeon (North America’s largest fresh water fish) and rainbow trout swimming below.
If you haven’t fished Lake Roosevelt you don’t know what you’re missing. More than 30 species of fish call Lake Roosevelt home. Whether it’s your first time casting, or you’re looking to wrestle a 300 pound sturgeon, our waters have the adventure for you.
You may see: rainbow trout, white sturgeon (averaging 100-300 pounds), yellow perch, lake whitefish, kokanee (landlocked sockeye salmon), and the indigenous burbot.
One of the few National Park Service units to allow hunting, Lake Roosevelt’s regulations are meant to provide a safe and meaningful experience for all visitors. Hunters must be familiar with both Washington State and federal regulations and keep in mind that many park visitors will be unaware that hunting occurs within the recreation area.
