Annual Omak Lake Report

Local anglers Chad Helms and Greg Taylor made their pilgrimage to Omak Lake in search of giant Lahontan Cutthroats this past month. Thanks for the photos guys.

Hey Chris,
Here are a few pics from the annual Omak pilgrimage. Tough conditions with lots of wind and cold water temperatures, but still got lots of quality fish. Fish were caught on variety of flies from intruders to chironomids. First fish of the trip had a six inch shiner in it’s mouth and still took an intruder.

    Not too shabby for fishing in “tough conditions”. I didn’t know Washington had a place that could yield numbers of fish that size. I’m planning on a road trip to BC this summer, and I might just have to hit up Greg for some tips about fishing Omak on the way.

    Give me a call and I’ll fill you in on the details.

    I have a trailered 17 ft boat and am wondering what kind of boat launches are available at Omak Lake that would accomodate my boat and where they are. Tried to fish Omak last fall but the water was low and only found a boat launch at the south west end of the lake but water was too low-gave up and went home without even launching. We are going the first week in June. Any information you can give is appreciated. Thanks

    There is a boat launch on the far north end of the lake that can accomodate a 17ft boat. You can see the launch from the main paved road.

    There is another boat launch at the northeast end of the lake. You cut off highway 155 and go past the Mission School about 2 miles and there it is. It has 2 concrete ramps and a nice dock and parking area and campground and outhouses. We got our limit of 3 each but were only 16 inches long- just trolled around the north end of the lake in 50 ft of water with leaded line and Kingfisher Lite in the purple color(3 colors out) We’ll be back now that we found a good launch site. Thanks for the advice
