Green Lake, or Gageit' Tá,[2] is a lake/reservoir south of Sitka, Alaska. It is fed by the Vodopad River and outflows into Silver Bay.

Green Lake serves as home to several pens to the Medvejie Fish Hatchery.

The lake is artificially expanded by the Green Lake Dam. The lake height before damming was 230 ft.
