FISHING at Black Beach Resort
Known as one of the best fishing opportunities in the state of Washington, Lake Curlew offers outstanding trout fishing.
Black Beach Resort hosts an annual bass tournament the last week in September. People come from all over the northwest to angle the elusive tiger muskie. The current state record tiger muskie was caught right in front of one of our docks!
North Ferry County offers other great places to fish, within a short drive of the resort. The Kettle River is known for their brown trout, Swan Lake, Ferry Lake, Long Lake, Renner Lake and others offer the angler a variety of fishing experiences.
Eich’s Mercantile in the town of Republic also carries fishing licenses. They are open Monday through Friday.
