Wood Lake is a small, shallow lake easily accessed 19km up Harrison West Forest Service Road. Although being a stocked, nutrient rich lake it doe not receive as much pressure as other lakes in the Harrison Area due to being so far off the highway. But
it is worth the drive, this lake offers great fly fishing in the spring and fall.
The lake holds Rainbow Trout that are typically in the 25-30cm range occasionally reaching 40cm. Due to the low elevation and depth of the lake it does suffer the summer
doldrums, so it's best to fish in the spring and fall. There are two distinct pockets in the lake with the north eastern one offering a nice drop off of up to 12M.
For fly fisherman The drop offs are perfect for fishing small Chronomids sizes 14-20
starting as early as February. Popular colours are brown, black, and olive. Other popular patterns include Scuds, Woolly Bugger, Doc Spratleys, and Mosquitos.
Spin casters can try small 1/16th oz spoons or spinners. Bait fishing can also be productive
either suspending power bait or a worm from a bobber or weighted down on the bottom.
There are two campground located on the lake, with a boat launch in the northern site. There is also a dock located at the southern site so bait fishing with a bobber
can be a great way to enjoy the sunset.
Note: There is a powerboat restriction on this lake.
