Can anyone recommend any good lakes, rivers or streams in the lower mainland where I can find some good sized brook trout? Not those little 6 inchers the americans catch on tv that they seem to be so damn proud about.

The upper lakes on Burke Mt are good but they are frozen over till late June and then you will be fighting off the bears. Good fishing but a long steep hike, VERY pourly marked trail. (we used a map and a compass as we could not find our way the first trip)I would recommend it unless you are prepaired for back country hiking and know what yur doing.

thanks! i'll definately have to look into that one. how were the trees and such? able to bring a float tube or a personal pontoon? or is it just shore fishing? and if so, is there a possibility for fly fishing? thanks again i appreciate all the help i can get!

I've hiked to and fished both Dennett and Munro Lakes on Burke Mtn. I didn't have much success on Dennett but Munro was an awsome little lake. Every other cast you'd have action. Not huge mind you, but loads of them.
As for a float tube or pontoon. I'd try it first with a lite day pack and a pack fly to feel it out first. If you survive the hike up in fair shape then judge if you want to haul the extra weight. The route is marked (somewhat) if you enter from Quarry Rd. but I'd have a backup map or gps. This trail is a reality check on my fitness level every time I do it. Probly best to wait till April/May sometimes even June for the snow to melt.
Good luck

I also hiked that trail once and I strongly suggest also to leave the boat at home the first time. Maybe a tube would be a better idea. Tough climb for anyone.

I just read that the dam on Munro Lake let go a while back. Apparently there's not much more than a marsh there now. Sad to hear, was a great little lake.

Thanks for the info. I was planning on doing a trip up there in the summer. You just saved me the disappointment of finding a marsh after a brutal vertical hike.

Yo,

Try some lakes near Whistler. Lake Lucile for example. There are a few others around there too with nice size brookies.

Do some exploring !
