Owen Lake is a popular recreation lake with good fishing for rainbow trout and lake trout. Most of the rainbow trout are in the one- to two-pound range while the lake trout can reach up to 20 pounds. When fishing for rainbows, a Willow Leaf and worm is a good place to start. Another popular lure is the smaller size Apex Troutkillers in black or blue and with silver specks.
Fly fishers can try a stonefly nymph or Dragon Butler pattern. In the warmer weather, the rainbow trout will migrate to deeper reaches of the lake and a fishfinder can help locate the best depth to target these fish.
When going after lake trout, try using a Williams Wobbler, Flatfish or Rapala Minnow. Make sure to get your line down deep and, if necessary, use a downrigger.
If you are in the area, it may be worthwhile to explore nearby Parrott Lakes, a chain of four lakes, considered family-friendly, with good fishing and camping available. As well, nearby Tagetochlain Lake is worth exploring. Members on the Angler’s Atlas website (anglersatlas.com/lakes/1835) report that Tagetochlain Lake has a boat launch and supports a good population of char.

From Houston, head south along the Morice River Forest Service Road (FSR) staying left (east) at the 27-km fork, keeping on the Morice-Owen FSR. The road wraps around the east side of the lake and there is a forestry recreation site on the lake shore. The recreation site is a very popular camping spot and has space for 20 vehicle units. The site also comes with a boat launch and is close to Nadina Mountain trail.
