Gates Lake near Birken, British Columbia
Despite facing heavy fishing pressure Gates Lake continues to produce big trout to 2kg in albeit small numbers. This is not an "action lake" more of a "wallhanger lake". Since so many people fish for a limited number of big fish the ones left are smart; you can't just use what everyone else is and expect a monster. Thinking outside the box and showing the fish things they have never seen before greatly increases your odds at a monster.
