Don't fish Cultas.

and why is that

Cultus Lake is overpopulated with coarse fish - it is known for some Squawfish derbies. In fact the only fish I ever managed to get out of this lake were Squas (Pikeminnows) - large ones.

This lake is also popular recreational area with lots of motorboats and PWCs.

But few people know that it is a very important link in salmon and cutthroat trout development. In fact, Cultus is the home for a very late sockeye run (early October).

So, if you will catch some squas - it may help this endangered salmon stock.

i agree...its pretty useless fishing cultus lake without a are very deep and don't readilly takes lures. cultus lake is great for bbq's in the summer though!

Im takeing my boat there, and on sunday im takeing it to allouete
