Report: One of the practice lakes for the 1993 world
fly fishing championship. Lac le Jeune is a very popular family
lake offering a good rainbow fishery, up to 3 lbs. Trolling and
spinning gear are the most popular methods used here ,however,
the numerous shoals around the lake harbour much insect life and
fly fishers do very well especially in late June and early July
when there is a good sedge hatch going on. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Situated on the Nicola Plateau, part of the Interior Plateau physiographic
region, Lac le Jeune is surrounded by hilly terrain forested mainly
in lodgepole pine, douglas fir and engelmann spruce. Resorts are
located at the southwest end of the lake. Many summer residences
are found on the north shore along with a huge provincial campsite.
Forested on the north and south sides to the lake. The west end
is very shallow with lots of reeds and drains into a small lake
with open meadows on it's north side. The east end is also very
shallow with lots of reeds. Make ready your fly imitations because
dragons and damsels love to emerge on reeds so trout will key
on these areas.
and Fred - Ross-Moore and Fred are small lakes located
about 5 km. (3 miles) to the east of Lac la Jeune and can be
accessed by taking a rough dirt 4 x 4 road on the north side
of Lac la Jeune . There is a small BCFS campsite with a cartop
boat launch on Ross-Moore. Fishing can be excellent on both
lakes with 4 to 5lb. rainbows taken regularly.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
