So it should be a good place togo, if its cold and wet there shouldnt be anyone there. furthermore, we live in BC, its usually cold and wet

A great place to fish for Cutties. Zfish the creek mouths with streamer patterns and hold on tight... People have been getting 16 -18 inchers on a regular basis up there.

Road wasnt bad, holy crap there was a lot of people up there. Had to go elsewhere...

Lake looks good, a little low, but lots of fish.

Lots of fish. Went there 3 weeks ago on a monday. only 2 other boats on the water. Super low water. Hits all day long on a green wedding band and worm. Did some trolling. Brought in 6 fish on the boat. Biggest was 14inch smallest 8 inch. Most of them were kokanee. Cheers.

Where is Jones Lake, and is it float tubable? I've always wanted to catch a Kokanee on a fly.

Onroute to hope. Before hope take the Jones lake exit. Large sign on side of highway. Somewhat rough road up. It is a large lake and it does get windy. Stay in the coves and near shore or else....

go there in summer,fall,winter.
in the spring, the lake is drained,and gets very shallow.
use the black leach fly at the south end to catch 5pounders. if you come off the lake after dark,watch out for the bats. keep your head low,and keep a lantern lit.
the road is bad. steep with sharp turns. stay out of the middle of the lake mid-day as winds pick up and may cause severe instability.
In the picture,up high to the left in the glaciers,there is an old copper mine from the 40's. history.
the A-frame houses have people employed to supply the lake with fertilizers that encourage plant growth.



otherwize, I love the place.lol
