Fishing Report: Deception supports a fair to good Cutthroat fishery with trout up to 1+ lbs. Trolling with spinners, flatfish or spoons work well as does fly fishing. Nearby Guess Lake also supports Cutthroat and should be explored while visiting the area.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

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