According to the Washington State Department of and Wildlife, this lake is part of Bear Lake County Park off Highway US-2.
This is a juvenile fishing rules lake: only juveniles (under age 15), licensed adults accompanied by a juvenile, or anglers with a disability who have a designated harvester companion card are allowed to fish.
This lake has largemouth bass, perch, and rainbow trout. Bear Lake is stocked annually with broodstock, put-grow-and-take, and catchable size rainbows.
Channel catfish are periodically stocked which provides a good fishery.
