Report: The rainbow
trout will go to seven pounds in Abbott Lake, but the average
is closer to two pounds. Because of the great amount of feed
in the lake, catch success isn't a sure thing, but well presented
flies or trolling
gear can be productive.
sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Hilly area covered with a mainly spruce/birch forest. 80%
of the area is forested with the rest cleared ranch land.
Mainly forested right up to the shore with many live trees growing
in the water. On the north and south sides there is some overhanging
brush, while on the east there are patches of floating moss
around the shore.
Starlike Lake: A small lake
located just south of the village of Horsefly off the Black
Creek Road. Starlike contains rainbows that will reach up to
four pounds or better. Flies, spinners and trolling gear do
well here. There is a resort on the lake, and accommodations
and services are also available at nearby Horsefly.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you
start fishing a new lake.
