This almost round lake, with park and walk access, and possible
large catches, is often overlooked by fishermen. Two prime fishery
sources, the Harrison River and the Weaver Creek Fish Hatchery are
connected by this lake. Located down in a valley, Morris Lake must
be accessed through private property. The owners of the property
welcome fishermen who will treat the property with respect. Turn
north off Hwy. #7 at the community of Harrison Mills. By travelling
north on the Morris Valley Road past the Weaver Creek Salmon Hatchery
for approximately 12 km. (7.4 mi.) will bring you to the end of
the access, from which you can park and walk to the lake.
There is no direct access or campsite at Morris Lake. The lake also
offers great opportunities for quiet canoeing and nature observation
as you can paddle not only around the lake but up the channel to
the Harrison River. BCFS campsites are located at a number of nearby
BC Adventure Network members serving this area:

Report: Although not very numerous, the Cutthroat can
reach up to 3 lbs. or better. Quota is two and you have to throw
them back if under 30 cm. (12 in.). For casting from shore, the
rock bluff on the northeast shore offers the best opportunity. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Large rock bluffs are evident in the north, while the southern landscape
is open to the Harrison River. Steep hills in the distance are blanketed
with Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar while the lower areas around
the lake and creek mouths are covered with willow.
Swampy areas are in evidence along the western and southeastern
shores. The north and south shores consist of steep rocky outcrops.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
