    Default Looking for some tips for next 2 weeks

    Folks, its that time of year when I have done lots of snow camping and really want to be out of it . . . I am looking for a place to go with the following criteria. Any help much appreciated:

    - fishing lake (open water, i.e. not frozen)
    - little to no snow
    - cold is OK
    - within a days travel from Vancouver
    - ideally not an official campsite . . .
    I know it may be to much to ask, but it does not hurt asking . . .

    I've thought of the following but don't know how accessible they are at this time of year with recent snow falls (if you have any updates, let me know):

    1) Nahatlatch Lakes
    2) Schraeder Lake (likely snow?)
    3) something in the Lillooet region
    4) Chehalis (is the snow gone from the south or north access?)
    5) up the Yalakom road but I again don't know where the snow starts.
    6) Something beyond Darcy . . . heard the powerline road is open...

    Anyone who can give me a tip . . . please do.
    Cheers
    A

    Can you wait a month ? I think every where but the coast is still minus temps.

    You mentioned the Highline Road, so how 'bout Birkenhead?

    Birkenhead gate to the campground is closed. Probably still around 30-50cm of snow on the ground
