anyone ever fish these & is it worthwile going there? drove up and saw them through the trees and they looked very nice although i couldn't walk down with the little guy going for an untimely nap in the car
I fished Morgan Lake this time last year with decent success. The reason I went was to try my luck at the Brook Trout that I read were in the lake but managed to catch 5 Rainbows in the 12-14" range instead. (My wife outfished me 3-2!) I lugged down my inflatable boat and electric motor which was a ton of work but definately worthwhile as there were 2 float tube guys that left after a couple of hours due to cold. The float tubers were also hitting fish about the same size.
I looked for access to Florence but couldn't find a decent path to the lake so I didn't bother.
Conclusion...definately worth the time, besides it is a very pretty lake even if the fishing doesn't pan out.
I've driven past many times, but I'm always leary of leaving my vehicle unattended in the area, for fear of it becoming one of the many burnt heaps that scatter the area. I've heard that the fish get very big though. There is no access to florence that I know of, (aside from billygoating the rocky hill) and threre is a short trail leading to morgan.
I fished Morgan a few years back in the springtime. Caught a decent 15" rainbow (quite dark in colour) by fishing from the shoreline and fast stripping a beadhead black wooly bugger on a full floating line. All in all, only fished for about an hour because the wife got bored. The lake is definitely picturesque though.
i hear you chris re the burn shells, we saw one up there burning last time we drove up. What's with those 'skids' anyways? too bad such a beautiful area attracts so many 'intellecutal giant' types. next thing you know the main gate will be locked to keep 'em out.
Yes it wont be long untill the main gate is locked. On june 2nd, the BC 4 wheel drive association is doing their annual Stave lake cleanup. They give away free food and small prizes to all who help. Hopefully I can attend :beerchug:
