East Wiliston lake area

Post by MasterYota on Mon Mar 11, 2013 3:11 pm

Has anyone ever been down the Clearlake FSR (starting in Pine pass) to the Finlay Bay area on the east side of Wiliston Lake? I was looking in the Northern BC backroads map book (map #55) the other day, and it looks like it heads into an area with tons of logging and cutblock roads to explore, as well as some trails and a rec. site or two...

Any thoughts or experience...?

Yeah I spent a ton of time out there. Used to be some wicked fishing back in the day. My my dad and my uncles built a good portion of the roads out that way. It's actually tagged as the kalazon fsr at the highway. The bridge off the highway is blockaded now since they upgraded that part of the highway but there is a couple ways around that I know of. There is a ton of cool history on that road.

West Fraser mills stopped logging that road fifteen years ago so some of that road is in bad shape. At the end o the road at the lake is a old old outfitters setup that a dentist from Dawson owns the rights too and uses it at his own private getaway but he is cool with you crashing in one of the guest cabins. Plus that road was originally started from the lake and the highway. They met in the middle. So there are quite a number if roads that fan out from the lake side aren't on many maps. You need the old forestry maps like my dad has to see them.

And way way before that the valley was a overland route into the peace country. So there are tons of old old cabins and such if you know where to look

When you say "bad road" does that actually mean its a good road for wheeling? Lots of history equals an area worth exploring good wheeling spots?

But haven't been in there since the mudslides. You can access the road from the silver sands fsr via the powerline if the bridge is still blocked.
