Off the beaten path lies the ‘lake country’ where trout fishing and canoeing are exceptional. From April to June and from September to October, lake fishing for Dolly Varden, rainbow & cutthroat trout can be excellent. Within easy reach of the fishing lakes, this park provides access to the Sayward Canoe Route – a paddle and portage circuit just over 47 km in length. Contact the Ministry of Forests for further info on this canoeing opportunity.
Morton Lake Provincial Park includes all of Morton Lake and a section of shoreline on Mohun Lake. A fine sandy beach and picnic area attracts swimmers and sunbathers.
