that reach into the 3 lb. class or better. Trolling small lures
and spinning gear are the preferred method of fishing however fly
fishing has met with success.

considered a good family lake. Rainbows to 3 lbs. are caught on
flies or by trolling. A good quantity of Kokanee are also present
in the lake. Vidette has cartop boat launching. Deadman Lake,
located south of Vidette offers a good fishery for Rainbow and
Kokanee that reach into the 2 lb. range. The lake has a timbered
