Silver Lake is one of the best Large-mouth Bass fishing lakes in Washington State. We also have abundant Crappie, Trout, Perch, Bluegill, Catfish, Warmouth, Pumpkin Seed, and two kinds of Carp. If you don’t have a pole or forgot yours, we have them available to rent, plus a well supplied tackle shop to help you land the big one!
While we do not have a beach or designated swimming area, and there is not a lifeguard on duty, people do like to enjoy a swim in the lake. Of course, children under 12 years of age must have an adult with them at all times & wear a life jacket while on the docks or near the water.
Fishing and explore Silver Lake in comfort with a pontoon boat rental. Available in two different sizes to accommodate groups of up to six people (or 900lb weight limit), our pontoon boats are the perfect vessel from which to enjoy the finest pleasures each season has to offer.
Anxious to cast your line out in the water? Why not consider a different fishing experience by renting one of Silver Lake’s motorboats? Available by the half-day, or a full day, or for more extended vacation stays. Our motorboats offer you the comfort you need to enjoy a “back to nature” holiday to the fullest.
We also offer Rowboats, Canoes, Peddle Boats, Kayaks, and Stand-up Peddle Boats to rent at Silver Lake Resort
