Carp Lake Provincial Park
The Carp Lake watershed above War Falls has isolated six fish species from the Peace River drainage. Rainbow trout averaging 500 grams and burbot are regularly caught by anglers. Northern Pikeminnow, two species of suckers and redside shiners can be found in park waters. There is also a short loop trail that connects Carp Lake Campground with the McLeod River, providing access to fly fishing sites.
The Carp Lake fishery depends solely on natural reproduction. There is no stocking program. With increasing demand on the fishery, the catch and release program is encouraged. Using lures and flies, rather than bait, is just as successful for catching rainbow trout and is less harmful to the fish.
