Report: Managed as a quality lake Jimmy is blessed with
good quantities of aquatic insects and can provide the fly fisherman
early spring Chironomid, Mayfly and Dragonfly hatches along with
good dry fly action during the mid-June to early July Caddisfly
hatch. Rainbows will reach 6 lbs. or better but be patient. Regulations
stipulate that there is no fishing between Dec. 1 - April 30, with
a single barbless hook, bait ban, and only 1 fish can be kept per
day with none under 50 cm. (20 in.) thereby ensuring that there
will be large fish left in the lake. This is an excellent lake and
it must be kept that way by practicing catch and release. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Lake - Woods Lake, 26 ha. (64.2 ac.) in size, can
be found approximately 9 km. (5.6 mi.) northeast of Jimmy Lake.
Aquatic insects are found in good numbers and fly fishermen will
be rewarded by concentrating their efforts on the shoals and drop
offs. Woods Lake is stocked with Rainbows and supports trout up
to 5 lbs. or larger. A 30 vehicle BCFS with good access and cartop
boat launching is available.
Lake - Nugget Lake with a surface area of 8 ha. (19.8
ac.) can be found approximately 3 km. (2 mi.) south of Jimmy Lake
on a very rough 4x4 road. Managed as a quality water, Nugget supports
a good Rainbow fishery for trout up to 3+ lbs. The lake contains
good quantities of aquatic insects including a great Caddisfly
hatch from mid June to early July. A 5 vehicle BCFS campsite can
be found at the lake.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
