Mossy River

Mossy RiverThe Mossy River is located to the northeast of Narrow Hills Provincial Park. It originates in the Cub Hills east of Little Bear Lake and flows easterly for approximately 100 kilometres to empty into the Cumberland Delta. The upper Mossy is a swiftly flowing stream with many sections of riffle-run sequences. In 1979, brook trout were successfully introduced to the stream and became naturalized. The large, deep pools and ample riffle sections of the creek provide ideal habitat for the resident brook trout. Pan-size brookies of 25 to 35 centimetres are most frequently reported by anglers, but larger fish are occasionally taken. Flies, spinners and natural or artificial baits, cast or drifted through deep runs and pools, are all effective at deceiving these spirited little fish. Caddis fly larvae and emergers are both popular fly imitations on this stream as are attractor patterns such as wooly worms. Access: Travel 29 kilometres north on Highway #106 from the #120 / #l06 junction. Thin east onto the Cub Lake Road (located 0.5 kilometres north of Little Bear Lake turn-off). Travel east on the Cub Lake Road for 21 kilometres until reaching the intersection with Highway #120. Proceed north from this junction on Highway #120 for another 10 kilometres to the Mossy Creek bridge crossing. The trout can be found both upstream and downstream of this crossing but foot access along the stream bank is challenging through these reaches. The Cub Lake Road is narrow but fairly well maintained. Road conditions are typically suitable for passenger car travel. *Note Highway #120 is closed between the McDougal Creek crossing and the Mossy River. Therefore, access to the Mossy River via Highway #120 from Lower Fishing Lake is no longer possible.
