k we decided to go to Gwen and was wondering if anyone has been up there lately

thanks :thumbup:
Gwen has turned into a wallmart parking lot since the new road was put in. I hit the lake three days after ice off this yr and caught my limit in 2 hours and released double that. Fish were all bigger than 18" and really good fighters. The lake is moody in the summer tho.. seen a lot of guys get skunked. Due to its relative accessability and closeness to merritt alot of locals hit it in the after noon or the weeknds. Nice lake tho.

We usually fish in the Chataway area, west of Merritt, turn off is about 15km, then another 15 to 25kms up the road depending on which lake you want. Tyner is the closest at about the 15km mark, then onwards to Chataway, Dot, and others. Out favourite is Gypsum, always good for a couple of nice fish. As these lakes are quite high up they fish better in the hotter months than many of the others in the area. They never seem to be crowded either. Haven;t fished there in a couple of weeks so am not sure how they're doing right now.
