Chataway Lake area includes many excellent small fishing lakes besides Chataway Lake itself. Abbott, Antler, Billy, Dot, Echo, Gordon, Gypsum, leRoy, Roscoe, Tyner and Tupper lakes offer a wide variety of fishing experiences. Depending on which lake you fish, Rainbows will range from very small to 5 lbs. Some lakes are especially suited for fly fishing with extensive shoals, weed patches, and a rich bottom full of scuds and chironomids. Fly fishers will be pleased to find large Caddisfly hatches along with good quantities of other insects such as Damsels and Mayflies in Gypsum and Tyner Lakes. Many of these lakes contain huge numbers of smaller Rainbows, that provide extremely fast action for young children and fishermen who want to sharpen up their fly fishing techniques. Roscoe, Billy, Antler, Dot, Gypsum, Abbott, Gordon and Tyner all have small BCFS campsites located on them and many have cartop boat launching. Accesses for the most part are 2wd however some lakes may require 4x4's and others such as Antler and Echo are hike in lakes. Before visiting this area, one can stop at a sporting goods store in Merritt for up to date road and fishing information or visit the lodge at Chataway Lake. Once you're there it will be hard to leave this great fishing and camping area. See also Calling Lake, Pimainus Lake, and Big OK Lake.

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