Fishing at Lake Quinault

Fishing at Lake Quinault


Best Fisheries in the Pacific Northwest

The waters just outside our front door are rich with a variety of fish, including steelhead, salmon, and trout. Fishing in Lake Quinault for trout is permitted during the summer months only. Fishing for salmon in the lake is NOT permitted but you are allowed to fish for salmon in the lower Quinault River. 

Lake Quinault Lodge front desk staff can provide you with information about local fishing guide services (tribal and non-tribal). Fishing trips can be customized to meet your needs. Bait and other fishing supplies are available at the nearby General store. Box lunches ordered the night before at fishing trip are available for early-morning pick-up at the Lake Quinault Lodge front desk.

NOTE: Since this area of the Olympic Peninsula includes both U.S. Forest Service and Tribal lands, be sure to inquire about regulations and license requirements. To learn more, view this Quinault Indian Nation fishing & boating document.
