I spent the afternoon on Friday fishing a nice little lake near the old toll booths on the Coquihalla. Fish were picking off dry caddis and dry chironomids, but I really landed some nice ones on travelling caddis pupa. Here's a sample of a 17 inch fish caught on the caddis pupa.
Thanks for the memories there DFG, I used to fish a couple of those lakes pretty regularly about 20 years ago...lots of fun, nice camping too...I wonder if it's the same lakes, and if they've changed much over the years. Might just have to make a return visit one of these days...
I too haven't fished those two little lakes in a while. We call them our "one hour lakes" as they take exactly 1 hour to get there from my place in the Wack. Great spot, most people just drive on by, very little pressure, also the high elevation means they are just getting good while the others are starting to slow down during the summer doldrums.
Gold ribbed hairs ear has been my go to fly on these lakes.
Yes, on the opposite side of the lakes from the lodge, there are are a bunch of campsites and there's a boat launch there. So as you drive up to the lodge, you can access the first lake from the left (southeast) side.
