Block Lakes 2015

Postby Heffty » Mon Aug 03, 2015 9:00 am

The admin and I made it into Block lakes this past weekend. This was a place we had talked about getting into for years. We had scouted out an animal trail in 2012 and felt it would make life a lot easier going the way we did. While the trail was helpful in some areas, in much of the lower valley the trail had been washed out by the 2013 floods and replaced with fallen trees, rockslides, and debris. Clambering through this mess was extremely taxing on us. We did however reach the lakes and they were beautiful.

Of course the legend of the Quebec Red Trout stocked in 1957 was the reason we went. I am happy to report they are alive and well. Here are some pictures of our weekend for your enjoyment.

Good job Heffer! Looks like you bushwacked up Ranger ck. and went over Block col.
I was hiking out of the Cascade today and I get to the bridge at 6km. and a fly fishing tourist pulls up in his 4x4 truck.
If you know the area you know how much this guy is breaking the rules.
I go downstream and fish and have a lunch break. Next thing you know a heli is flying money circles right over top of me.
It's about to land on a gravel bar just down stream, but then lifts off and races up river,
Later I see the truck getting towed and its' owner isn't very pleased.

This reminds me of another heli story
In Sept 1993 I was up at Rae lk. in K country.
It was early and there was no wind and I was sight fishing, but there were no fish.
Then I saw all the fish in the lake were in one spot, a couple dozen at least.
I start catching them and their beauties; 2-3lbs easy!
Then I hear a helicopter, when it comes over the lake I hide behind a tree.
The heli lands and a guy gets out of the back and starts unloading fishing gear.
I might as well get out from behind the tree and fish, and as I do the pilot sees me and tells the other guys.
They load their gear back in the machine and take off.
