Bass Fishing

Bass Fishing in BC

McMillan Lake

McMillan Lake is located on the west side of Trinity Western University and offers a good Largemouth bass fishery. It's a very shallow pond full of weeds so its not recommended to use weights. There are no watercraft allowed on this lake but there is plenty of shore fishing available around the lake. When fishing for bass look for them close to the surface and chuck a lure over to them trying to entice the fish. Rapala lures work well here as well as frogs or weedless jigs. Since this lake is on Trinity Western property be respetful of the people here and they would like to keep this lake a catch and release only lake. The TWU parking lot is a pay and park so make sure if you decide to park here you pay, but if you dont mind a little walk I usually park at McMillan Park rest area on Glover Road and walk to the lake from here.

They are required to electroshock for non native species, because they are displacing sensetive salmon stocks!

lol bass are a way better fish than trout. pound for pound no comparison and in a mudhole like this why not let the bass provide enjoyment to all anglers

Has anyone tried fishing this April yet? I have had zero success. The pond froze pretty solidly over the winter. Wondering if there was winter kill.

Rumors that they just went thru and electro shocked this little pond and killed all the bass. Not sure what the 100% truth is. Sad though.

Would rather see native species in this pond coming from the Salmon River run offs in Spring.

There are, unfortunately, still many bass in the lake, even after the electroshock cull of 700+ fish that were mostly pumpkin seeds and bass.

I know they electro shocked this pond 5 years ago and the bass lived on and I heard rumors they were planning on doing it again but I shall investigate this.
