Fishing (Good)
Catchable rainbows are planted, Kokanee are available, and browns. Although decreasing in numbers; some large brownies remain. Better for trolling, but with some decent bank fishing still available at the right times.

 Boating Lakes & Reservoirs (Good)
All craft allowed with a speed limit 5 mph in all inlets, but low water makes the boat ramp unusable.
