Hi folks, Nick Drader here, owner of Compass Heli Tours. 4 Generations of my family have been coming to this lake so you can imagine why this one is special to me! This lake is beautiful year-round. It has large sandy beaches, a beautiful temperate rainforest, several creek systems, and it is all surrounded by huge granite cliffs. Many visitors say the cliff feature West of the lake looks like El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. This lake also has a Jurassic Park feel to it. Our pilots like this lake because it has the lowest elevation above sea level, which means we can access it in just about any weather. There is a very high probability of catching fish here.
Fish species present: Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, Bull Trout (confirmed), Kokanee (unconfirmed).
