Fio Rito lakes
These two lakes alongside I-82 between Ellensburg and Yakima provide some good, easy-access fishing throughout much of the year. Most fish from the bank but boat fishing is allowed. Just no gas-powered motors are allowed. Rainbows are mostly caught, but often hatchery fish are planted in one or both lakes. An occasional brown trout is also caught. Year-round open fishing on these lakes. Fishing should be good for eight to 14 inch rainbow trout, with some brown trout available. Black crappie and yellow perch may also be caught from time to time.
About three miles southeast of Ellensburg, alongside I-82, with access via Thrall Road Drive up #6 road until you reach the public access fishing sign.
