and Little Knouff. Badger can be found a few kilometers north
of Little Knouff Lake. Wet weather can make the last few kilometers
of road to Badger very greasy and trucks are recommended.

Report: Considered a quality lake, Badger was one of
the practice lakes for the 1993 World Fly Fishing Championship.
The lake produces excellent hatches of chironomids in the early
spring followed by a good sedge hatch beginning in mid-June. Badger
can, and has in the past, produced large Rainbows in the 10 lb.
class, however trout up to 3-1/2 lbs. are the norm these days. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Lake - Spooney Lake is connected to the west side
of Badger by a channel. It is about 7 ha. (17.3 ac.) in size
and like Badger has good insect hatches in the early part of
the fishing season. Rainbows normally go to the 3-1/2 lbs. however,
this lake, like Badger is capable of producing much larger fish.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
