Banks Lake is a man-made impoundment in a 27-mile portion of a natural coulee. Most of the 91 miles of shoreline are ringed with basalt cliffs and talus slopes. There are about 23 islands in the reservoir.

Banks Lake can be fished year-round and is a great vacation destination. Stretching almost 27 miles from Coulee City at the south to Electric City at the north, this large reservoir is very popular with anglers pursuing many species.

Banks Lake, part of the Columbia Basin Project, was created by building two rock-faced, earthfill dams at the north and south ends of the Ice-Age channel of the Columbia River, now known as Grand Coulee. The reservoir is 27 miles long with 27,000 water surface acres. Fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, yellow perch, rainbow trout, walleye, kokanee, black crappie, bullhead, and whitefish. Developed camping facilities are also available. Call 1-800-452-5687. Wildlife area information.
