Fishing Report: With lots of aquatic insect life including an excellent spring chironomid hatch along with a good mayfly hatch makes this small lake a great choice for fly fishers. Corbett is a consistent producer of rainbows in the 1 lb. range with some going to 3 lbs. or larger. This is a quality fly only lake.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

The areas to the west of the lake are sparsely treed, mainly in douglas fir, while to the east it is composed mainly of grass areas with patches of aspen and areas of mixed ponderosa pine, douglas fir and lodgepole pine.

Shoreline: Consists mainly of eroded till which supports willows and sedges forming a riparian fringe around most of the lake. Large areas of emergient and submerged aquatic vegetation are found in the lake.
