due to the crazy forestfires last summer,i ended up at clearwater last summer.(no smoke) spent 3 weeks fishing up at coldscaur lake.i am new to that area,fishing wise and i am planning to spend a few weeks somewhere along/around the interlakes hwy.this summer. can any of you fine people recommend a good quiet lake to use for a base?i prefer forest service sites and i dont pull a trailer so i can get into any site a 4x4 can normally access. ive looked thru my fishing map books, but the only tell half the story.(atvs,drunken yahoos,etc.)i really apreciate any and all opinions.

Lots of good fishing lakes in that area. Deer lake/Lost horse lake north of Birch lake have decent forestry campsites...

Cheers

Here were a couple areas that I chose as my starting points for past trips, I have camped at several lakes around the Lac Des Roche Area, and there are so many that are accessible with a truck 4X4 preferred, but you can also chose one of the larger lakes to park at and just bomb around to the many satellite lakes in the area Try walking (not far packed tubes in maybe a road now) into hunka and using poppers stripped fast on the surface, use to be the magic there, not huge fish but over and over till your arm hurt. That was a while go though. If you are planning on being closer to the 100 Mile Area, make sure to stop at Fawn, Irish, Valentine, Boar. Those should be fairly productive as well, I have fished quite a bit around the 100 Mile House Area, PM me if you have questions.

I go up that way every September and stay at different forestry campsites. Needa Lake has been good as has Lorin and Howard Lake. Last year I tried Drewry Lake but it was quite muddy and I don't know if it's always like that. Check out the tourist info center in 100 Mile, you can get a large map with all the lakes and backroads in the area for free.
