Lakes & Rivers
Lake is located on the Port Alberni Highway. You will find a resort, a picnic
area and boat
launch at the east end of Cameron Lake and the start of Cathedral
Grove Forest at the west end. Macmillan Provincial Park runs along the
south side of the lake.
Cameron Lake is a very
deep lake and is quite unique because it contains Brown Trout that can reach
upwards of 6.5 kg in weight and fight like the devil. These brown trout are
notoriously hard to catch but when you get one on, well you know you have one
The lake is also stocked
with Rainbow, Cutthroat and Kokanee Trout that can reach 2 kg and
fun to catch.
The lake is hard to fish
from a small boat or canoe because the wind can come up fast and blow hard.
Fishing from shore works ok but you probably will not get the big ones, you need
a decent boat to fish this lake and troll deep for the Brownies.
If you look across the
lake, you can see an old railway trestle that is now part of a hiking trail system.
