River and Stream Fishing
Rainbow and brook trout (some cutthroat) and whitefish are present in nearby Upper Cispus River. There is predominately brook trout below Chambers Creek. Cispus River, below Muddy Fork, is more difficult to fish because the water is cloudy from glacial silt coming off of Mt. Adams. See Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Sport Fishing Rules for more information on salmon and steelhead fishing below North Fork Cispus River.
