Report: The average size of the Rainbows is usually 1/2-1
lb., but can reach over 2 lbs. Glacial silt and mud may be carried
into the lake during the spring run off making the water a bit murky
for a short time. Gammarus shrimp along with good numbers of Chironomids
can be found in the lake. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Three sides of the lake are steep slopes forested with Western and
Mountain hemlock, Red and Yellow cedar and Amabilis fir. This is
a very beautiful lake with clear water, bright green meadows with
numerous wild flowers and a tree line that is not too far from the
lake after which you can view the rocky alpine slopes and snow fields.
Glacial erosion has formed this large deep lake and many areas have
very sharp drop offs. The treed shoreline of hemlock and cedar is
interspersed with a fringe of shrubs, heather and alder.
Lake - Madely Lake, can be reached via a branch road
north (right) off the road to Callaghan Lake. It is a small lake
which supports good numbers of small Rainbows up to 1 lb.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
