ACCESS & FACILITES: There is a resort, Deka Lake resort and numerous access roads but no free camping.

LAKE DISCRIPTION: This large lake is devided into 3 distinct areas; the southern end which is ringed with cabins and year round residences, the middle narrows which is one big shoul averaging about 8 feet deep, and the remote northern section with depths of up to 320 feet!

Deka is quickly becoming the it lake for Kokanee fishers in the 100 Mile area. The koks grow big and are not to hard to fool, most kokanee lures will catch a few with small orange bodied and white bladed spinnglos being one of the better lures. Dodgers will out perform most attractors with the newer small flashers in glo scale quickly proving there worth. The kokanee fishing can be very good in the southern part of the lake about 75 meters off the south shore between the last two access roads, typically the kokanee are between 25 and 45 feet deep most of the year at Deka.

The northern end is were you go if your after lakers, although lots of the locals are of the opinion that kokanee fishing is better there as well. An opinon I dont share. The lakers of Deka are like lakers almost any where AGGRESSIVE although the larger ones must be worked for. There are some amazing drop offs along the western shore line were predatory lake trout are just waiting for your offering.

I must admit I have yet to target the Bows here, which grow to very respectable sizes, as the draw of 5 pound Koks is just too much for me to resist.

Thanks for the report. Some good info here. Where is this lake? How long of a drive is it from Vancouver?

Deka Lake is about a 15 min. drive east of 100 Mile House. The drive from Van is about 5 hours and well worth the trip as the fishing is fast like Alouette lake BUT the Koks average better than a pound. Cheers.

I've had some sucess in Deka
