Arthurs Lake offers great fly fishing for both experienced and novice fly fishers. The fly fishing is so good on Arthurs Lake that we purchased 100 acres of lakeside land and constructed our fishing lodge, Blue Lake Lodge, on the edge of the Lake.
Arthurs Lake teems with wild brown trout mostly in the 2-4 pound weight class with the occasional bigger fish thrown in. These wild browns are tenacious fighters- our guided guests are regularly taken into the backing. The trout in Arthurs Lake rise freely when surface food is available. During the summer months we almost exclusively fish dry fly on Arthurs Lake.
