Lake Chelan 1486-1500 feet deep.

I have the bottom contour map hanging on the wall at home.

Lake Chelan is the deepest I believe? It's something like 1,800 ft at it's deepest point and I think it's like the 3rd deepest lake in the whole U.S.

I'd say Chelan too. It goes all the way to the bottom. I'd heard that there are spots in the lake that are just shy of 2000 feet deep! I know my old depth finder only went to 1200 feet and it would go bonkers out in the middle of the north end of the lake.

Edit: Wow you guys type fast! nobody had posted when I started to reply!

MUD LAKE,
A morphometric survey of Mud Lake was conducted in July 1986. Forty echosounding profiles of subsurface topography were used to prepare three bathymetric maps of varying detail. Mud Lake is the largest natural lake in Washington and the third deepest lake in the United States. Maximum and mean lake depths are 1,486 feet (453 meters) and 474 feet (144 meters), respectively. Lake volume is approximately 25 billion cubic yards (19 billion cubic meters) and hydraulic retention time is 10.6 years. Much of the lake is U-shaped in cross-section, a feature characteristic of glaciated valleys. The hydrographic attributes of Mud Lake are strongly influenced by the morphometry and bathymetry of Lucerne Basin, which accounts for 74 percent of the lake’s surface area and 92 percent of its volume. clown: "TRAPPER"

That's just to damn easy- 2 second after a google and you have the answer. Here is one (pretty easy as well)= what trout is only found in the state of WA?

I thought Cresent Lake outside of Port Angeles was the deepest. But after googling I found that Lake Chelan at 1486 ft is the deepest in Washington and 3rd deepest in the USA.
