Report: Yellowstone cutthroat trout are resident in this
deep, cold alpine lake. Flycasting and spinfishing are the most
popular methods used. Ant, beetle and fly patterns are used with
great success as well as black spinners and wedding rings with maggots.
Mid-July to mid-October are the best times of the year to visit
Heather, Upper Joker, Helen Dean, Kaslo, Keen, Garland, Tanal and
Sunset Lakes are all located in the park and provide good fishing
to anyone willing to hike-in.
