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
You'll wish for more hours in a day to enjoy all the enjoyable stuff at Echo Lake. You're in all probability interested in lakes, Lake Almanor is one of those close by. There's so much to do here at Echo Lake that you need to camp here for a while, Silver Bowl Campground is a delightful place for that.
