There's no Lillooet river in Lillooet. Upstream from Harrison lake.

Yep have to run the length of the lake. Full tank of fuel plus fot the return trip. The river is still running high and hard to fish. Had a great day all the same. Seeing a bull elk in the river was a bonus.

Sorry, forgot to ask.
Did you launch from Johnny's place at the Harrison bridge? If so how much fuel did you burn?

thanks

You don't have to run the full length of the lake. You can launch at 20 Mile Bay.

The elk was in a side channel just a couple bends up from the lake. Did launch at the hwy 7 bridge the whole run burnt 180 liters. Dragging the trailer up 30 km of gravel road to 20 mile bay doesn't interest me any but the road is pretty good.

I haven't been up in a while either but the terrible road into the site has been improved to 2WD status according to my neighbours who camped there this summer. IMO the run from Hwy 7 up to 20 Mile Bay is the prettiest part. Once you get past Doctor's Point it's kinda ugly but if you start at 20 MIle you have cut your journey in half if not more. Back in the day I circumnavigated the lake in my 14 foot Livingston and 35hp outboard for 40 bucks! :lol:

hahaha yeah, we had friends go drinking/missing in a cartopper. Guess they went around the island at night, and couldnt figure their way back. Had to search for fuel at diff. campsites and cabins. Search and rescue found them in the mornin, beer cans floating in the boat, and they were still motoring... There were some pissed off friends I tell ya. I missed that trip, not sure why.

I towed some people in once who had broken down in the middle of the lake. That lake is not a good place to break down. If in a mini definitely go with someone else.

I am curious why you don't use the launch in Harrison? Saves 45 mins doesn't it? Thats 1 1/2 hours in gas.

You use the paid launch in town, Gord? I always used to launch on the corner past the marina where the windsurfers go but then they stopped allowing overnight parking there. Still OK if you are just going for the day though. Make sure you have 4WD or launch beside the actual launch unlike the guy I saw bury his van up to the axles there.

I paid and parked in the downtown lot. Felt like it may be safer if I didn't get back that night.
