Fishing Report: Rainbows in the 2 lb. range take flies, spinning lures and trolling hardware.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: Situated in a low mountainous terrain. Spruce and Lodgepole pine with some aspen and Douglas fir make up the south side of the lake. The north side contains Douglas fir, spruce and aspen with some open grassland areas.

Shoreline: Peaty soil in several areas where it is backed up by marsh. Except for some sandy beaches, the rest is forest soil. The north side of the lake is accessible because of the lack of trees however a band of alders along the south shore makes this side of Machete not very accessible.

Nearby Lakes

See Janice and Thuya Lake in the high country region. There are so many good fishing lakes in this immediate area that it is impossible to list them all.

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