Como Lake Park REFLECTIONS

SonjaPetersonPh♡tography posted a photo: Coquitlam, BC Canada Como Lake is located at the western part of Coquitlam. The best road to drive along and park at is Gatensbury Street, which can be accessed either from Como Lake Avenue or Austin Road. Parking can be found at the lot on the north and south ends of the park, as well as along Gatensbury Street. The lake is small, so it only takes around ten minutes to walk around it. Fishing can be done year-round at Como Lake. The best fishing months are March to June, and September to December. During spring and fall, Lafarge Lake is aggressively stocked with rainbow troutby the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery. These rainbow trout are typically around 300g heavy. Anglers may also encounter common carp and brown bullhead, which is a catfish species, in the shallow parts of the lake throughout the year. While angling from shore is the most common way to fish at Como Lake, you can certainly use a float tube, pontoon boat, canoe or small craft to paddle around it. When fishing from a boat, slowly trolling a fly almost never fails. A size 10 or 12 dark leech pattern is always irresistible to these newly stocked rainbow trout. If you are fishing from shore, there are several common methods used. Bottom fishing with bait can make bite detecting more easily, but you are likely to encounter many brown bullhead.
