Susan Lake, Grant County, Washington

Susan Lake
This lake is in an area where people bird watch or hunt for them. Fishing for Rainbow Trout at his lake is another activity, though with limited results. It's a small lake that separates into when the lake level is low. One could kayak in the lake but I would chose another lake that has more beauty. Algae builds up is a problem in this lake by mid to late summer. Fishing: Rainbow Trout. Directions: From Moses Lake take HWY 17 south toward Othello; turn right (west) on HWY 262/O'Sullivan Dam Road. Approximately 2 miles up the road on your left (south) you will see the entrance to Sheep Lake Rd. Follow this road all the way to the sign indicating Katy and Susan Lakes. Follow this road west and stay to the right where a sign indicating Susan Lake will take you down the hill to the lake.
