Here is a page from the Department of Ecology.  I will be contacting the Jump Of Joe Lake Resort for a fishing report.  I like this little lake and found it a great place for kids to catch a lot of blue gill and sunfish. 

Enjoy the information.  Dave

SUMMARY OF VOLUNTEER SURVEY There was no survey response for 1996. FIELD OBSERVATIONS OF ECOLOGY STAFF Lots of surface scum observed during the summer field visit.
TROPHIC STATUS Estimated Trophic State: Oligo-mesotrophic Mean Trophic State Index (Secchi): 36N* (Oligotrophic) Mean Trophic State Index (Total Phosphorus): 35 (Oligotrophic) Mean Trophic State Index (Chlorophyll a): 42 (Mesotrophic) *The calculated TSI is an estimate. The Secchi disk hit bottom (B), entered the weeds (W), or there were too few valid readings (N), or the calculation was based on qualified data (J), or TSIP was based on spring data (S).
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION OF TROPHIC STATE ASSESSMENT Jumoff Joe Lake is classified as oligo-mesotrophic. TSI and profile data support this classification. There were high concentrations of oxygen throughout the water column.

There is a great resort at Jump Off Joe Lake: 3290 East Jump Off Joe Road    Valley, WA 99181   (509) 937-2133  I had a great time fishing there a few years ago with my son.  We caught little sunfish and crappie and blue gills as fast as we could throw a line out.  It was more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.  Give them a call. Tell them Dave Atherton and Emmrod said to call.
