Approximately 50km of good paved and gravel road from Highway 97 via the Forest Grove and Canim Lake South road. From 100 Mile House, travel north on Highway 97. At the top of the hill, turn right onto the Forest Grove/Canim Lake Rd. Travel to the community of Forest Grove. Turn right onto the Canim Lake Road. Approximately 12km from Forest Grove, just before arriving at Canim Lake, watch for the Canim Lake South road junction, (this is also called the 8100 rd.). Turn south (right) onto this road and follow it along the south side of Canim for about 8 km (5 mi.) to the Howard Lake road. Watch for the sign post. Turn south (right) again and follow this steep access to Howard. It is approximately 3.5km of rough dirt and gravel road to the lake. This is a narrow road with some steep grades, but passable with a 2-wheel drive and trailer. This access road can be bad in wet weather.

Fishing Report: This "trophy" lake can yield rainbow up to five pounds and more. Fly fishing seems to get excellent results but other methods work well also.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: This small tranquil lake (3500m x 500m) offers a scenic view of sloping hillsides forested with a mix of coniferous and deciduous trees; spruce, fir, aspen, pine, birch, and some cedar. Take the time to pause and watch for some of the area's prolific wildlife.

Shoreline: A clear lake appearing dark green in color. Weeds are present at the edge, being of lilly pad, reed, and bottom cover type. High hills around the lake are visible.

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