Clear Pond, Spokane County, Washington

Clear Pond (1 acres)
This pond also known as Clear lake (not to be confused with the bigger Clear Lake in the same county... no way is this pond big enough to be considered a lake) is right up the road (East) from Fishtrap Lake before you cross the bridge over the railroad tracks. This lake is more of a pond than a lake and is best suited for kayaks if anything, however it's even small for kayaks. This is a nice lake to take pictures of some beautiful water foul at but that is about it. Directions/Maps: From Spokane go west or from Moses Lake go east on I-90 to Exit 254. Turn south after getting off the I90 exit onto Old State Highway/Sprague HWY Rd E and travel 2 miles. Turn left/east onto Fishtrap Rd. Continue past Fishtrap Resort onto W Scroggle Rd. You will go up a big hill and before you get to the railroad tracks you will see Clear Lake. To view a map click on google.com/maps follow the above directions on the map. If you type in Clear Pond the map search will give you no results.
