Miller Lake should be good for hatchery rainbow trout. There is ample room to fish from shore near the swimming beach or near the dock. Best fishing is from a boat trolling small spoons or flies for rainbow trout.

Brown trout are very abundant in the lake but catching them is quite challenging. Most brown trout will be holding near the thermocline at 15 feet. They feed almost exclusively on kokanee or stocked rainbow trout. Small brown trout can be found feeding on the Callibaetis hatch in the flats near the outlet of the lake. Caddisfly hatches are also good this time of year. Another good location is the mouth of Evening Creek.
