Report: Anahim Lake reports an average of 14 to 16
inch wild stock rainbow trout reaching up to three pounds. Although
spin fishing and trolling are effective, this lake is particularly
popular for fly fishing. Fly fishing is very productive in early
summer and fall but it is good throughout the season. Where the
water flows in from Little Anahim provides the best fly fishing
on the lake. A unique fly fishing experience comes when one drifts
the river from Anahim to Abuntlet Lake. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!

covered with a coniferous forest of pine and spruce. This shallow

The gravelly shoreline is interspersed with grass, poplar, alder
with rushes covering about 80% of the shore.
