Lake - Located just before Tisdall, the 7 km (4.34
mi) lake also has a small Forest Service Recreation site suitable
for truck and camper units. The small beach can be used for boat
launching. Trolling is the most successful method of catching
rainbow and lake trout. The lake trout will go up to 8 pounds
and the rainbows about 3 pounds, but there are occasional 8 pounders
caught. Hiking trails are also available to take advantage of
the spectacular scenery.
Lake - Elbow is found about 12 km (7.44 mi) past Tidall.
Although there are both wild stock rainbow and lake trout in Elbow
Lake, it is not known as a "hot" fishing lake. Trolling is the
best method to try to take these "hesitant" fish. There is a Forest
Service campsite with swimming beach and boat launching area.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
