These twin lakes are located within the Coquihalla Mountain Range at the foot of Grasshopper Mountain. West Murphy Lake is easily accessed from a short trail through Murphy Lake Recreation Site. There are rumors that you can access
the eastern lake through a 4wd road but I have yet to find that access point. The only access is to go through the western lake to the east side then follow a short path to the eastern lake. Both these lakes are stocked and receive low fishing pressure
so there is lots of fishing action. You can fish from shore but its very limited and if your fly-fishing you will definitely need a float tube or small boat that you can carry in. Tom Thumbs and Micro Leeches are the most popular flys to use in black
How to get there
Murphy Lakes are located within the Coquihalla Mountain Range. To get there from the Coquihalla Highway take exit 228, then make a right onto
the first road after the exit. Shortly after you get onto this road you will see a gravel road on your left hand side labeled Tulameen River Forest Service Road. Follow this for 8kms then you will come up to a Y in the road, take the left hand road which is
called Lawless-Britton Forest Service road. About 4kms down you will see a road to your right and should have a sign saying Recreation Site. Follow this road down until you come up to Murphy Recreation Site on your left.
