Chain Lake Day Outing

  • June 09, 2018
  • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Chain Lake



Outing Hosts: Susan Lahti and Maura and Carl Johnson

Registration Fee- No charge

Chain Lake, a small lake managed by WDFW, is located 3 miles north of Monroe and less than 1/2 mile from the home of NFA members Maura and Carl Johnston.  The lake is about 39 acres with an average depth of 10 feet.  Fishing opportunities include stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass.  Resident Black Crappie and Pumpkinseed Sunfish are also present.   

Due to the limited parking space, our hosts will organize a parking shuttle from Maura and Carl's home to the lake to make life easier for all attendees.  Please make sure you sign up so that Susan, Carl, and Maura can coordinate parking.
