Jones Lake, also known as Wahleach lake is a high elevation BC Hydro impoundment set behind Mount Cheam. It has a beautiful setting and has a stocked population of Cutthroat trout that grow surprisingly big, in excess of 60cm, due
to the BC Hydro funded fertilization project. The lake also holds stocked Kokanee and Rainbow trout which average 20-25cm. Due to the lakes high elevation (640m) the lake is usually not accessable between December and March due to deep snow. Prior to the reservoir
being formed, it was logged and flooded causing the bottom to be littered with logs and stumps, so use extra cation as the water level fluctuates and dead heads can appear in places they weren't before. All the logs on the bottom can also provide perfect cover
for the fish so there's lots of places for them to hide. The best method of fishing this lake is trolling, for Kokanee the classic lake troll, wedding band tipped with a worm setup works wounders while for the Trout a stickleback immitation such as a flat
fish, Doc Spratley, or leetchs can work perfectly trolled within 50 meters of shore.
