To get to Anuntz Lake you head up the inland island highway from Woss until you come to the Zeballos turn off. From there, you head down the Zeballos road until you come to the river main road. Turn here and drive until you reach the anuntz lake recreational site turn off. I would recommend that you use a truck as this road can get rough.

Anuntz lake is stocked with cutthroat and has a population of wild rainbow and dolly varden trout. The recreational site has camping sites and a boat launch. The lake is deep enough to troll and offers some decent rainbow trout. Fly fishing in the shallows from a kayak, just at dusk, will provide some incredible cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing opportunities. Not to mention the views you will get from your kayak.

The lake flows into Nimpkish lake and there is some good fishing in the river that separates them. The lake is a very nice lake to camp on and the scenery around this area is simply glorious to see. So if you want to have a great camping trip, this is one of the lakes that will deliver this.

Wolfe, Atluck, and Anuntz lakes all drain into the larger Nimpkish lake. Roselle and bonanza Lakes are also located nearby. All of these lakes have great campgrounds, boat launches and are stocked with fish. Anyone one of them will provide an adventure of a lifetime.

You have a great chance of seeing black bears, elk, deer, birds, and other small animals like beavers and otters at this lake. I love birding here, some of the rarer birds on the site were photographed in this area.
