Fishing Report: This area is world renowned for fantastic fly fishing and canoeing. The creek, river and lakes are perfect for sightseeing from a canoe. Silverhope Creek, which passes through the lake, can offer the avid fisher some excellent fishing pools. This small (1 km./.6 mi.) long lake is usually very calm in the evenings. Although the majority of fish caught are small, the Dolly Varden can reach up to 5 lbs. The creek exit lagoon is a "hot spot" for the avid flyfisher; for those who prefer to cast from shore there is a fast drop on the west side of the lake. Special regulations are in effect.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: This area can offer some of the most spectacular scenery in North America. Majestic snow capped mountains, untouched forest wilderness and highly "fishable" creeks, rivers and lakes are at your doorstep.
