Family fun is at it's best at Cedar Rest Cabins. The lake is cold water Spring fed, and the fishing is wonderful. If you are an accomplished fisherman looking for the thrill of the catch, we have some of the best spring salmon fishing anywhere. We pride ourselves in providing a place the whole family will enjoy. During the summer togue and salmon are plentiful with a down-rigger or lead line fishing. With the water warming on the surface, the togue are generally found at depths of up to 100', and salmon run from 40' to 80' below the surface, depending on the water temperature. Because the fish are found at these depths, it requires more equipment to catch, but that is the thrill of fishing Cold Stream Pond. Bring your family and let them swim in the crystal clear waters while you are out on the lake enjoying what you came for, fishing for salmon or togue.

You are likely to catch either Salmon, Togue or Trout in the lake, depending on the time of year you visit. Trout are not as plentiful, but the experienced fisherman who has a passion for playing the line will likely catch one or two. You will have to bring your own watercraft, and your own fishing equipment, but we provide all there is for a comfortable stay in the cabins. We have been fishing the waters of Cold Stream Pond for many years, and we know the waters well. We will direct you to some of the best places to find salmon and togue, but it will be your experience that lands them.

Come spend some time at Cedar Rest Cabins. Cedar Rest Cabins is a family run business opened in the 1950's, and Dave & Melinda have been the owners since 1998.
