Lake fishing in Oregon or Washington

Looking for recommendation for a mid to late October trip in either state. We have a 41 ft dp towing a wrangler so we would prefer a camping location that has pull thru sites with full hook up or at least 30 amp electric.. The site does not have to be on the lake. Ideally it would have good shore fishing or boat rentals. Thanks.

What kind of fish? October means central and eastern parts of the states are out. Coast would probsbly be your best choices. If you uave a snall boat, D Lake at Lincoln city might still be good.

Good fishing? That's a very elusive goal! �� Do we fish to catch fish? Yes! Does it ruin our trip if we don't catch any fish? No!

Ike Kinswa State Park is one that is close(ish) to us and we enjoy, with some spaces available up to 60' long.

not a lake and probably cant fit your rv, but last fall I camped at Cotton Wood Canyon state park along the Jon Day river. Its reported to have the best Small mouth bass fishing in the west. I'm a crap fisherman and I still caught so many I stopped counting after 20.

My favorite lake for that time of year is Lake Roosevelt in Eastern Washington .

It's a huge reservoir created by the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River . It's not a wide lake but it's 150 miles long .

Best CG is 2 Rivers . It's at the confluence of the Spokane River and Lake Roosevelt. The campground has numerous pull throughs with full hookups along the high bank surrounded by mature trees and overlooking the confluence . It also has a full service Marina with boat rentals and bait shop.

Your timing would be perfect , in late fall is when the trophy Walleye are caught .

In addition it has Kokanee , Lake Trout , Rainbow Trout , Small and Large Mouth Bass , big Perch and big Sturgeon .

For those wanting a break from catching fish , there's the historical site Fort Spokane just across the Spokane River from 2 Rivers CG thats worth an afternoon visit. Or just take a boat ride up the lake to Hawk Creek , a small inlet in the Coulee bluffs that opens into a secluded bay with a waterfall at the end in a box canyon . The scenery is spectacular looking in any direction.

I think I just talked myself into scheduling a fishin' trip this Fall !

One more thing , as you're fishing along the shore there's a good chance of seeing Black Bear , Big Horn Sheep , Deer and more Turkey's than a person can count.
