Whatcom

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Sep 21 2022
A modestly traveled lake, there have been some successful reports by anglers at Lake Whatcom over the past few years. Anglers reported the most success with smallmouth bass. Chum salmon is also a popular species to fish for at Lake Whatcom. Located just east of Bellingham. Fishing opportunities include resident Kokanee, Largemouth and Smallmouth bass, and Yellow Perch. Fishing for resident Coastal Cutthroat Trout is closed due to a decline in abundance caused by siltation from historical logging and urban activities in their spawning tributaries. Fishing with 2 poles is NOT allowed. All tributaries and that portion of the lake between Electric Avenue Bridge and the outlet dam are closed to fishing at all times.Boating access and other amenities are available at Bloedel Donovan Park (City of Bellingham) and a WDFW access area.
