I have fished Echo Lake for 40 years. Best done from a small inflatable boat. Small trout, but a great experiance for a first time kid. Says Art Rasmussen
Yeah, come up here to the Southern Cascade Range for a good time. Lakes are such calm places, why not stop by Betty Lake close to Echo Lake, and dry warm beds await you at Best Western Rose Quartz Inn. You'll find a beautiful lake called Lake Almanor near Echo Lake, and here at Echo Lake you can catch
a sight of Star Butte. This lake is so wonderful. Echo Lake is not far at all from Westwood; why not camp at Silver Bowl Campground while you're here at Echo Lake.
