Fishing Report: Up to and including 2006 there has been an annual stocking program of both yearling and catchable Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout. In 2007, 6800 non-reproductive Rainbow triploids were stocked into Allouette Lake. Although the population of fish is significant, the large size and the great depth of Allouette Lake make sure there is not a large number caught. Rainbow average about 1 lb. and Cutthroat can average 1 to 1-1/2 lbs. Lake Char can reach 20 lbs. or better. The steep drop off of the lake makes finding a good fishing spot difficult and the shallow end that would be good for fishing is heavily used with the campsites and picnic areas. The many bays and streams and the shoreline would probably produce the best results.

Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: Allouette Lake was formed when a dam was built for a hydro project. The 15 km. (9.3 mi.) lake is nestled amongst rugged, steep mountains primarily covered by a conifer forest. The spectacular scenery can be found throughout Golden Ears Provincial Park.

Shoreline: The varied lakeshore can range from enticing sandy estuaries to sheer rock bluffs. Magnificient streams plunge down the surrounding mountains into the lake. The south end of the lake provides about the only shallow area suitable for a beach. There are large numbers of submerged stumps around the southeast shore. There are no aquatic plants growing in this lake because of its low nutrient availability.

Nearby Lakes

Mike Lake: Mike Lake with a surface area of 4 ha. (10 ac.) is located approximately 4 km. (2.5 mi.) southwest of Allouette. It is stocked annually with Rainbows and supports good numbers of small trout.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
