Report: Stocked yearly with 2000 Pennask Rainbow, Brenda
provides a good family fishery for trout in the 2 lb. range. Good
Gammarus Shrimp populations are present in the lake. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Surrounding countryside is forested in Jackpine with some spruce
and Balsam fir. The lake contains Tannic stained water with very
little aquatic vegetation. In 1991 a fish ladder was constructed
at the outlet of the lake by the Lonely Loon Fly Fishers Club.
Lake - MacDonald Lake, east of Brenda, is a 5 ha. (12
ac.) lake which supports good numbers of small Rainbows. MacDonald
was stocked with 1000 Pennask Rainbows in 1994 and management
plans are to increase trout size. A 20 vehicle BCFS campsite can
be found at the lake.
Lake - Peachland Lake is found south of MacDonald and
can be accessed via the road to Brenda Lake. 110 ha. (272 ac.)
in size, Peachland lies at an elevation of 1250 m. (4100 ft.)
and is subject to summer drawdown. The lake contains a fair fishery
for smaller Rainbows (3000 Dragon/Premier Rainbow stock were introduced
in 1993) however, trout up to 3 lbs. have been caught but are
rare. A 20 vehicle semi-open site with cartop boat launch is present
at the lake. See Headwater Lake.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
