Deadfall Lake

  

Shows a lake surrounded by vegetation

Species present: Brook and Rainbow Trout.

Seasons: Open all year. Bag limit: 5 per day, 10 in possession.

Date of usual ice out: June (7,300' elevation).

Access road: This lake is located on Section 24, T40N, R6W. Access is via the Parks Creek Road (Road 17) from the Stewart Springs exit on Interstate 5, north of the town of Weed. About 9.5 miles up Road 17 is the Parks Creek trailhead of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). The lake basin is about 3 miles east and south on the PCT. It is a low gradient trail, but long. An estimated time would be 2 or 3 hours to get to the lake. Another approach is via the Deadfall Trail from the Deadfall Meadows trailhead another 1.5 miles further on Road 17 (at the switchback).

Camping: Limited at the shore. One site is at the outlet. Another is to the north. The shoreline is steep.

Surface acres: 25 acres and 40' deep.

Comments: A large lake that is good for Brook Trout and some Rainbows, even an occasional Brown. Open, but steep shores. Fly fishing especially good. This lake is on National Forest land.
