Location: This small lake can be accessed from the community of Harrison Mills on Hwy. #7. Take the Morris Valley Road north and then onto the good gravel Harrison West logging road for approximately 23 km. (14.3 mi.). There are marked signs to the lake. Total distance from Harrison Mills is about 31.3 km. (19.4 mi.). In appearance the lake looks like it is squeezed in the middle with two main parts connected by a channel bordered by rocky knolls.

Resorts & Campsites: There are 2 small BCFS campsites on Wood Lake; one on either side of the lake. There is a gravel boat launch at the northern campsite. Although the gravel road is good, the campsite is not suitable for motorhomes. As well as the marked campsites, the open area around the lake lends itself for making your own campsite. This lake is very popular in the summer so early arrival is a good idea. Facilities and services are available at Harrison Mills.

Fishing Report: The possibility of large Rainbow attract many fishers to this small lake. The average size, however, is about 1 lb. This well protected lake with good quantities of aquatic insects, is perfect for the fly fisher. Because of its growing popularity for a summer retreat, early spring and fall would be recommended for those not wanting a lot of people around. No power boats are allowed on the lake.

Viewscape: This popular recreation area is surrounded by heavily forested hills consisting of Douglas fir and Hemlock, studded with bare rocky outcrops. There may be evidence of past logging in certain areas. The narrow plateau that accommodates the lake overlooks the massive Harrison Lake to the east.

Shoreline: There is good access to the lake except at the northeast end. Occassional rocky outcroppings or old logs are common along the shore. The southeastern corner is covered with grass and sphagnum and can be very damp and spongy.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
