Water Sports near the town of Omak
Omak Lake
Located on the Colville Indian Reservation. Omak lake is Okanogan's premier spot for water skiing, fishing, sun bathing and swimming around Okanogan. The lake is about 10 miles long. The largest saline lake in Washington, is located southeast of Omak. It lies mostly within a steep-walled valley and is the principal body of water in the Omak Lake watershed. Omak Lake has no outlet and is fed by drainage from the surrounding hills and plateaus and from several inlet streams. With miles of sandy beach and hidden gems isolated from the general population there's plenty of room to play here. You most obtain a fishing permit from the Colville Indian tribe to fish here. Located 7 miles southeast of Omak; Omak Lake covers 3,244 acres and holds the record for a 18.04 pound Lahontan Cutthroat Trout caught in 1993. Public beach and boat access are located at the north end of the lake. 

Crawfish Lake
The lake is located 15 miles northeast of Omak. The north half of the lake is on USFS land, the south half is on the Colville Indian Reservation. If you plan to fish both ends of the lake, you would need to have a fishing permit from the Colville Indian Tribe and also a Washington permit! Most of the property along the shoreline of the lake is privately owned, with a US Forest Service campground occupying the northeast side of the lake. Boat Motors have been prohibited on the lake since 1996. Crawfish lake offers public fishing, rowing, canoeing, kayaking camping and swimming. Some consider the Crawfish in this lake to be a fine delicacy!
