Fishtrap Lake–North Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Fishtrap area is part of the Channeled Scablands of eastern Washington. The deep coulees and canyons were carved by the Great Missoula Floods following the last Ice Age tens of thousands of years ago. The combination of rich desert prairies and lakes have provided a plethora of resources for Native Americans over the last several thousand years.

Native tribes utilized the plants and animals of this area for food, medicine, and building materials. Today, the Bureau of Land Management works with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to manage the area for wildlife habitat, as well as for recreational opportunities. Rattlesnakes abound throughout this area so consider hiking here early in spring (March and April) before the snakes come out of their winter dens."
