Little Heffley and Heffley Lake are
situated near the eastern edge of the Fraser Plateau, part of
the Interior Plateau Physiograph Region. The lakes lie in a dead
ice pocket at the end of the Pleistocene. The area around the
lake is covered by Douglas
fir, with clearings that have houses, summer cottages, ranches,
farms and logging.
Except for the broad littoral shelf at the west end, the drop-off
into deep water from the shore is moderate. The shoreline is for
the most part organic and there is a thick growth of aquatic vegetation
found around the shore. The riparian fringe around the lake is
made up of cottonwood, water birch, snowberry, red orsier dogwood,
willows, reeds, sedges and cattails. The backshore vegetation
consists of areas dotted with Douglas fir and grass cover.
Lake - Heffley Lake, located just to the east
of Little Heffley, is a very popular lake. Long and narrow,
Heffley has a surface area of 203 ha. (501.4 ac.) with a maximum
depth of 23.5 m. (77 ft.). Resorts and a BCFS campsite can be
found on a lake that not only offers good fishing but also sailing,
canoeing and swimming. Heffley is stocked with Rainbows and
supports a fair to good fishery, with trout going up to 3 lbs.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
