Fishing Report: Excellent fly fishing for wild Kamloops Rainbow trout. A fishery that produces well right through the fishing season. Fast action for rainbows that range from small up to the 6 lb. class. Thuya and Island lake, which are roughly the same size are the largest in the area; see nearby lakes for the names of some excellent smalll nearby hike-in lakes.

Viewscape: Thuya lake, the main lake in this area is quite flat on its north side. The east, west and south sides have gentle rolling hills with moderate slopes. Deciduous growth consists of willow and alder while lodgepole pine and spruce make up the coniferous forest.

Shoreline: Minor rock outcroppings and sedge grass are found in the 1st. 2 m. (6.6 ft.) of land from the lakes edge. The shoreline substrate is composed of angular and round material with approximately 40% of the lakes surface area having a sparse plant cover.
