Fishing Report: Bolean provides a good Rainbow fishery for trout up to 2-1/2 lbs. Leeches, Gammarus shrimp along with Chironomids, Damselfly, Caddisfly and Dragonflies provide good food sources for these trout. Of course, fly fishing is very popular, but trolling with small lures, flatfish and spinning gear also meet with good sucess.

Viewscape: Situated near the top of a plateau in the Spa Hills, Bolean is surrounded by gently rolling hills forested in Balsam fir and Englemann spruce. Cutblocks can be seen on the west and southeast sides.

Shoreline: Bolean is surrounded by a 1-2 m. (3.3-6.6 ft.) band of sedge, which widens to 5-7 m. (16-23 ft.) along the south shore. Dead conifers also surround the lake with sparse deciduous growth along the shoreline. The lake is shallow in the south half, and a small island can be found halfway along the the length of the lake near the east shore. The north half of the lake drops off sharply to a maximum depth of 12 m. (39.4 ft.). There is very little aquatic vegitation, and the substrate is mainly organic overlaying rock.
