Nearby Lakes

Benny, Freshette and Annette - These 3 lakes can be found about 2 km (1.2 mi) past Spanish Lake off of the same gravel road. All three are walk-in lakes with trails connecting them together. Watch for trail markings. These lakes contain large rainbows, 8 lbs or better. Fly fishing or spin casting produce good action. These lakes receive very little angling pressure and it would be well worth your while to explore them.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
