River and Stream Fishing

This cabin has some of the best fishing on the District, but it is also very popular and reservations need to be made early. The outlet stream is a good place to catch salmon and trout species. The inlet streams along the shore and at the far end of the lake are good places to fish for coho salmon. Dolly Varden follow the spawning salmon to eat any stray eggs -- so if you find salmon, the Dollies will be there too. Cutthroat and rainbow trout hybrids are in the lakes and creeks in lesser numbers.

A rowboat is available for cabin users, but you may wish to rent a 15 or 25 hp motor in Cordova to get to the far end of the lake. Please bring and use life vests.

Fees: occupancy of Forest Service cabins is by permit only ($35 per night per party).
Permit required?: Y
