Fishing Report: Wild rainbows averaging 1 1/2 lbs are caught from May to July and September through October. While spinning gear is the most popular, fly fishermen do very well.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: Scum is surrounded by flat to gently rolling terrain, covered in open pine forest mixed with occassional spruce trees and patches of aspen and birch trees.

Shoreline: Consists of cobble and boulders. Grass and small shrubs extend back some distance from the shoreline in many places, otherwise pine forest grows to the shoreline.

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