Spent 5 days at Island (Big OK) Lake last week. What a great spot! This lake is tucked in behind the Highland Valley Copper Mines (just past Logan Lake) Then once you turn off 97C North it's another 30 - 40 min on gravel road. The road into the lake from the mining road is quite rough (approx. 1-1/2 km) Cars not reccommended even a tent trailer would be tough. We all tented and had trucks so wasn't a problem. Absolutely beautiful area with lots of wild horses roaming free also saw a moose and a black bear.
Fishing was little tough, but we had nothing but time on our hands and were rewarded with some nice fish. It is a single barbless fly only, catch and release lake. All fish were released unharmed after a quick photo.
The weather was relentless though, very windy, wet & cold but the sun did make a few appearances.
For me chironomids where the fly of choice. Green #12 & #14 but red butt under and indicator. Some of my buddies were catching on marroon leetches on a slow troll w/ a sink tip. At times you would catch 2 or 3 fish in an hour and then go 2 or 3 hours with nothing. Hey that's fishing. Here is a few pic's

Lots of room for everyone's boat.

Another beauty fish caught on a marroon leetch approx. 2 lbs. That seemed to be the average size that we were catching.

Here is a pic of the campsite. You can see how windy it got (lol)

Great post Nickers. I'm guessing the lake is not listed in the reports section? Nice fish too, thanks for sharing.
