Fishing Report: Rainbows to 4 lbs. are taken by spinning or trolling. Caddis fly and an abundance of scuds make it interesting to the flyfishers.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: The south arm is very steep. Several rocky slopes and bedrock faces extend to the waters edge. This area is completely forested in Douglas fir. Patches of western birch are scarce and scattered over the hillsides. Understorey and groundstorey is very low and the forest is mainly open and clear. The west arm is more gently rolling to hilly with mixed mature Douglas fir, Lodgepole pine and spruce on both sides. Deciduous growth is restricted to a few isolated patches mostly on the south shore. Summer cabins are located along the north shore.

Shoreline: The south arm area is very steep both above and below the water line. Shoreline is dominated by near 100% cobble and boulder from failing talus slopes and bedrock outcroppings. The west arm is fairly steep but open and stable with a thin margin of understorey development at the waters edge. Shoreline substrate is again cobble with occasional small sandy beaches.
