The Quesnel Lake watershed annually hosts the largest wild salmon run in the province. Originating high in the Cariboo Mountains, the uncrowded waters , pure and gin clear, range from shallow rocky streams to rivers with big deep pools just waiting for you to present your fly to the robust wild trout. This fishery ranks highly among the hallowed flyfishing waters of the world.
No matter the fly fishing season, spring, summer or fall, the dry fly, streamer and nymph fishing ranks among the best in the world. Fall flyfishing during the salmon runs adds a unique dimension to the flyfishing season as we go after monster 'bows and Dolly Varden with nymphs, egg patterns and flesh flies. The Quesnel Lake fishery is known for it's big wild rainbows. The coloration of these beautiful, healthy rainbow trout rivals the northern lights frequently seen in our night skies. Trout average 2 to 10 pounds. However, this phenomenal freshwater fishery is home to a very unique, genetically pure strain of large slow growing trout that produce trophy catches in double digit pounds up to 20+.
Known for spectacular scenery, wildlife, worl d class fly fishing for wild native Rainbows, Dolly Varden, bull trout, salmon, kokanee, and char in uncrowded waters, the area is located about 260 air miles northeast of Vancouver in the Caribou Mountains. There are daily flights from Vancouver to Williams Lake, an hour's drive from the fishery and our base in Likely.
