I understand that there are quite a few lakes on this stretch of road.....does anyone know of where to camp, etc..and if you need a pass or anything?? I heard something about camping on Harmon and i'd like to try these lakes out

Any info is appreciated.

Not sure about camping - I think there is a campground on Kane, but my co-worker caught a 22 inch Brookie there on Sunday. It was pretty ripe due to the spwan but there are some nice Brook trout there.

Good campsites at The main Kane lakes and harmon lake. I pulled a 20+ incher out of Harmon earlier this year. Very nice lakes, the sites are provincial.
Good luck, :beerchug:

They are provincial Forestry campsites which is different from BC Parks. Very busy up there compared to years past. Word is getting around clearly. :mad:

Wookie, there are some sites at Englishman maybe 8 sites? Harmon has at least 12, Kane upper has 4-5 sites and there are a couple spots on the lower Kane as well. Easy access= Lots of people motorhomes ect. Went up last weekend for a day and it looked like an RV/ATV/Dirt bike show :-\ but what do you expect on a long weekend. We didn’t camp so I am not sure if you have to pay??? The lakes can be quite good fishing if you can figure them out and timing is right. Some nice size fish but they see a lot of pressure so matching the hatch is key. I fished upper and lower Kane from 9am-2pm on Monday before the wind and hail ended the day. Fishing was slow had a couple hits and broke two off...A bit rusty on the hookset i guess ::) Observed large amounts of boatman in pale geen/yellow. Some immature damsels and small mayfly hatch. Chronies were trying to hatch but the weather didn’t seem to help :-\ Have had most of my luck fishing chronies deep 22-30ft on the sink line. Kane has spanked me 4-5 times i have fished it...but I keep going back for more :confused:

Good luck

there are lots of lakes in the area most are what they now call "enhanced forestry sites" so you do pay to camp. i went to the forestry office at green timbers(off 96th ave.) and got a forestry services map of the area which shows all the roads and has a list on the bottom of the campgrounds and how many sites at each(very nice to have). many of the lakes are 2-10 sites so they fill fast on weekends. hook and i have done BOSS lake on may and aug, long and have no problem getting a site, but there are quite a few here as there are some at each end of the lake. the campground with the boat launch is your best area if your there to fish as the other one usually gets taken by all the dirt bike and quad riders. there is another lake just up the road and it also has lots of camping available. hope this helps. :2cents:
