Atluck lake is a lovely lake that is fair in size, quite deep, and loaded with stocked rainbow and dolly varden trout. Some of them can run to 2 kg in weight but most are an average of 30 to 40 cm. The lake is quite pretty with great views, the fishing is awesome and there is lots of space for camping. Did I mention the views? The views will just take your breath away.

This is one of those great lakes of Vancouver Island, A real jewel of a lake. A lake surrounded by snow-covered mountains nestled in a narrow valley that is filled with wildlife. The birdlife is incredible, don’t forget to bring your camera. There is a real good chance you will see black bears, roosevelt elk, blacktail deer, or any number of smaller creatures like raccoons, otters, or pine martins.

The lake has a great recreation site and a boat launch. There is good camping available. There are 2 campgrounds that have a boat launch with camping. Both sites are awesome and are right on the lake. Camping here is pretty good, you will enjoy yourself.

As this lake is in a very narrow valley. The wind has a habit of coming up fast and blowing hard, which can give the lake some fairly choppy waves. Take caution when out in a boat, wear your safety gear. I have seen 3 to 4-foot waves form on this lake, and it sometimes can happen in a flash. Not so great for fishing but perfect for windsurfing.

To reach atluck lake, take the Zeballos road to 9 km at mukwilla lake. Turn right and travel down the atluck main until you hit atluck Lake. Have fun.
