Fishing Report: As the fish often tend to be muddy, many find catch-and-release the best type of fishing for this lake. With the rainbow averaging around 2 pounds and often reaching up to eight, many prefer to use flies and small spinning lures to entice the fish.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: The rolling terrain surrounding the lake is covered with an open spruce, pine and aspen forest.

Shoreline: Reeds border most of the lake, with very few shrubs on the actual shoreline.

Nearby Lakes

Crater Lake: Crater Lake is a 10.77 ha / 26.60 acre lake that is located southwest of Marmot. Stocked with rainbows and offering a small Forest Service campsite at the end of a 1.6 km (1 mi.) hike. Crater Lake is enclosed in a basin, as the name suggests, and you are able to easily view the surrounding lodgepole pine forest that blankets the surrounding rolling hills. Access to the lakeshore is generally good through the open forest. Angler pressure is low.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
