Outing Leader: No host outing.
Rattlesnake Lake is one of King County’s premier fly fishing lakes for rainbow trout and triploids. Selective gear only, no gas powered motors (electric trolling motors only). The lake is perfect for fishing from a float tube or small pontoon but beware of the winds!
The Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area includes the 111-acre lake, picnic areas, the Rattlesnake Ledge Trail and parking access to miles of State Park and King County hiking, biking, and horse trails.
There is no outings fee, nor food, nor cutoff date for signing up. But the outings leader would like to have an idea of how many people are coming. Just come and have fun; bring the whole family and have a picnic.
