Author Topic: Anyone have knowledge of Morris Lake?

Like the title says. I am going there tomorrow morning.

If I dont hear anything I'll just go and experiment. I'll let you know how it goes too.

try doing a search . there have been some threads on this lake in the past incl accessabilility.

I have seen vehicles approach this lake from the southside where the inflow is. I do believe you have to go through private property in order to get there. Most park up top on the North end of the lake, and walk down a steep and rocky path down to the lake. It is approx a 100 yard walk and fairly easy carrying a float tube. I have carried a aluminum boat all the way down and back up, but be prepaired to be exhausted on the way back up. If you have any type of waders you can walk along the edge of the lake to the inflow. If you have no waders or boat you will be stuck on a little strip of land on the North/west side of the lake at the end of the trail. Not much access to this lake unless you have a boat or waders. Fishing can be good, and you can catch many different species in this lake, from cutthroat trout to salmon. It is a spawning lake so I think there will be a lot of salmon in that lake as we speak. They will most likely be red and dying right now. Cutties would be probably the best option to fish, use a spoon that resembles a fish. The same goes for fly fishing, use a streamer. A lot of people fish with a worm and bobber and seem to do quite well. I've fished this lake a few times, and the experience can be great, or the lake can reek of death from all the spawning salmon. Good luck!!!

Thanks for that setthehook.

I just got back from Grace lake. Morris had a raunchy smell with a lot of decomposing salmon. So I ended up at Grace lake which was a great day fishing. I'm going back tomorrow.

If your bait fishing in Morris lake right now, the best thing to be using is single eggs, as the cutthroat trout will be cruising around looking for them.

Sometimes the trout {Dolly Varden and Bull trout especially}will actually swim and bump the salmon's belly, hoping to get eggs to come out so they can feed on them.

Fishing close to the in-out flows in spawning season is your best bet.
