Avery Lake ....
This area consists of four units, one of which is Lake Avery. Hunting
is a greater draw to this area than the fishing. Deer and Elk hunting
are considered exceptional. The Lake Avery unit offers good camping,
picnic areas, toilets and a boat ramp.
The fishery is primarily managed as a trout fishery, although with illicitly introduced crappie it is offering an excellent opportunity for good numbers of decent sized fish. Due to its relative remoteness and an abundance of outstanding fisheries nearby, including the White River and Trapper’s Lake, this reservoir receives light fishing pressure.
Getting there: 20 miles east of Meeker. Take State Highway 13 for 1.5 miles, turn right on to County Road 8 for 19 miles. Turn left at the dam to access the outlet of the lake or proceed up County Road 8 for another mile to reach the inlet.
Boating: Wakeless. Water skiing, jet skis and boating other than wakeless boating are prohibited. A boat ramp is available.
Ice Fishing: Ice fishing allowed
