Report: Another excellent fly fishing lake (although
it is not a fly only lake) producing rainbows to 3 lbs. and larger.
At such a high elevation, Calling lake will produce well in mid
summer as long as irragation drawndown isn't too excessive. See
Big Ok (island) Lake. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Scattered patches of sedge and grasses are found within the riparian
area. Tree stumps are found along the shoreline and rock outcroppings
are seen along the south shore. The shoreline substrate consists
of large gravel and cobble where steep and where the slopes are
gentle the substrate is organic with small amounts of wood debris.
Calling is shallow and the extensive shoal area supports many different
aquatic plant types along with leeches, waterboatmen, caddis fly
larvae, fresh water shrimp (scuds), sedge, snails and chironomids.
Little Ok Lake - A small lake 8 ha. (20 ac.) is located
within minutes of Calling and also supports good numbers of rainbows
in the 3 lb. and larger range.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
