Description

The 3-mile long freshwater lake is part of the productive Paul’s and Laura Lakes salmon spawning system. Red salmon enter Paul’s Lake in mid-June and silvers enter during August. These fish must journey two miles through Paul’s Lake and up a cascading creek before entering Laura Lake. Because Laura Lake is two miles from saltwater and is at an elevation of 160 feet, salmon struggling to enter the lake are beginning spawn; they are no longer bright in color. Fishing is typically much better in Paul’s Lake, which can be reach with an approximately 1 hour hike.
