Newman lake, Liberty lake
« on: July 15, 2019, 08:55:10 PM »
We have been looking at homes to retire around these lakes, have any of you fished these lakes or others in the area ? I know there's lots of wildlife in the area. Thanks in advance

What do you want to know about them? Used to fish one of them at least once a week when I was living up there, not to mention every lake within about 50 miles.

Had a buddy that lived near Liberty lake and he fished it often for trout. Went with him once, wasn't stellar but we caught a few. Don't know about crappie. He would launch his boat and fish after work.

Fished them both for years 30 years but have not in that last 2 if that tells you anything.  Liberty is good for browns right after ice off...after that nothing but mastercraft snowflakes and the worst boat ramp in the state.  Newman has not had trout for years.  There are some stunted crappie in newman and some big muskie....but in the last 5 years the carp have ruined that lake. 

Look at Hauser, better fishing and you can escape Wa

Newman is shallow, and gets hot and weedy. Definitely a warmwater species lake. It's a beautiful area and you can get onto IEP land on the northside of it I believe.

If you want a good trout fishery or mixed species, I would look north instead around the Spokane/Stevens county line at those lakes

There are crappie in almost every lake around there. For decent trout waters you'll probably want to expand out and more north. Both in WA and ID.

Lots of good trout water across the border.  Great pan and pike fishing too.

Both are great little fisheries, especially for bass. Both also have plenty of crappie. If trout is your thing, Liberty has tons of browns and rainbows and they are pretty easy to catch early in the year. Newman isn't stocked with trout so you won't find any.

Here's a look at some of Newman Lake where you can find some big bass.
