Coweman Lake is a hard lake to fish and a little difficult to reach due to road closures Says Richard Rolfe
McBride lake is still a good lake although smaller due to the slide. It has great, catch and release, cutthroat trout. Says Richard Rolfe
Hiking is a popular thing to do around Coweeman Lake; Fawn Lake Trail is a wonderful local trail. The fine people of Ariel like to hang out nearby; the summit of Elk Mountain can be seen from Coweeman Lake.
Georges Peak Trail close at hand is 5.6 miles long and has a great 1,673-foot elevation difference; it's a scenic hiking and backpacking trail.
