Travel Tips for Clearwater

Camping at my favorite fishing lake

by Darby2

"Campsite at Coldscaur Lake"

This lake is typical of the hundreds in the 100 Mile-Clearwater-Little Fort plateau. It has a small creek draining it in which there is a good population of wild rainbow trout. During the month of May, many of the spawners can be seen at the bridge over the road. The lake is 30 km up Road 2 from Clearwater.

The campground here is supplied by BC Forest Service and is user maintained, so there is no fee for use.

Most fishermen use small boats or canoes to fish from. The lake is about 3km long and about 200 meters wide.

"Squirrel's dining room!"

When you see a stump like this covered with a pile of pine cone scales, you can expect Mr. Red Squirrel has been dining here...

Most of the lakes or ponds have at least one pair of loons....they have at least six distinctive calls.

"Calypso Orchids"

One of the smallest but prettiest orchids found in many parts of the forest, these tiny gems have a very sweet fragrance. The grow to about 2-3 inches high.

After the snow leaves the forest floor, these tiny anemones burst forth in bloom.
