Hartland Lake is a 15-acre stillwater located about 10 miles north of Lyle, Washington, off the Columbia River. Hartland is a scenic hour-and-a-half drive from Portland, up the Columbia River Gorge. The lake is about 16 feet at its deepest and is primarily a trout fishery with emerging populations of bass and bluegill as well. Alkaline soils and plenty of bug life contribute to a good growth rate for fish. Hartland Lake is surrounded by a mature stand of willows, scrub oak and ponderosa pine. Campsites and picnic areas are available. The lake is most easily fished from a boat, but a shoreline trail accesses several fishing spots. Regulations are catch and release only, with artificial lures.
