I am planning on going up to Pennask Lake this year late spring or early summer, I am wondering how to get there I hear the road in (last 6 kms is very rough) and what type of flies are being used in the lake.

Haven't been in there in a couple of years now. Yes that last 6 km's will take you all of 45 - 60 mins to get in there.....but it is very navigable. I believe the exit off the connector is Sunset Main....then follow the signs.
I'm sure fishin' is the same in there....I have had 100 + fish days in that lake (two of us).....also had them jump right into the boat on a number of occasions!!

Good luck!!

I would avoid taking a trailer, stick to a car topper, make sure you have LOTS of ground clearence,a winch or come-along and avoid the puddles AKA the deap pits of no return.If you do take your trailer make sure you remove the engine from the boat or have a spotter walking behind. Lots ot Loons last year. Small fish but there are lots and lots.

lol, a winch? that road isnt that bad. i had heard that the road was bad so i took my mud bogger truck my first time and the road was realy good. i went last year in my little mazda truck and zoomed right in there.

I have a Ford ranger 4X4 and a pontoon boat, what are the camping sites like I will be tenting it

You will get in there just fine with a ranger. There are plenty of campsites (user maintained) just make sure your tent can handle scary weather. It tends to get very ugly up there sometimes. As far as flys go, I always have very good success on micro leeches. The fish are always hungry so a lot of things will work. I can confirm that the exit you take is Sunset Main. Check out this website for more detailed directions. Good luck!

Also you can check out The Powder Keg in Merrit on your way up. They have a really good selection of flies. The guys in there know their stuff and can usually tell you what flies will work and when.

My buddies and I went to Pennask on the 29th May the one buddy caught 1 trout and the other fellow and I got skunked, had a great trip and yes it was really rough the last 6 kms.

The road is rough but we made it with a camper, while towing our boat last fall. Try heading to the northeast part of the lake. There is no dock but a clearing where you can land your boat. If you follow the trail, you can portage (about 100-150 meters)it will lead you to a small lake. my friend caught a 24'' rainbow that fought like crazy in ther

i have a stock height ford f250 powerstroke and a camper.. will i make it up the road to pennask? i would like to head up there for a weekend of fishing/camping. any feedback is greatly appreciated.

You should be able to make it, but it will be slow going at some points. chose your lines carefully and it shouldnt be a problem. Its probably dry this time of year so the potholes wont be full of water and you can avoid the deep holes.

awesome, hopefully ill be able to get up there soon.
thanks
