Where to Fish Blue Lake


Blue Lake is stocked every 4 years because of the relatively easy access. The 2017 sample was a short 3 hour daytime net set that caught 4 Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout. Crews also tried to angle fish in 2017 but caught no fish angling. In 2017 the fish density appeared low.
