World Class Fly Fishing on Quesnel Lake
Quesnel Lake is the deepest freshwater fjord lake in the world and home to world-class rainbow trout fishing.
With a long stretch of beach on the property, fly fishing opportunities can be found seconds from the lodge or in the nearby feeder streams of Quesnel Lake. Quesnel Lake rainbow trout are the trophy fish of the lake. They are famous for their large size due to their older spawning age than other strains of rainbow trout. This allows the fish to grow larger before spawning and makes the Quesnel Lake strain a unique fishing experience not to be missed by any avid fly fisher.
The option for a quick trip to Silvertip Lodge by float plane to fish in alpine lakes of the Cariboo Mountains that are seldom visited by people can be arranged. Hobson lake in the nearby Wells Gray Provincial Park has opportunities for excellent rainbow and bull trout trophy fishing, with Silvertip Lodge as the closest access point.
A short walk through an old growth cedar forest brings anglers wanting to fly fish the mouth of Blue Lead Creek. Fly fish in the spring or visit the creek in the fall to witness the spectacular annual salmon run. Sockeye salmon and kokanee fill the feeder streams while plenty of whitefish and char can be found in Quesnel Lake.
Aluminum motorized fishing boats are available for use at Silvertip including down-rigging equipment that can reach the depths of the lake. The boat house is stocked with all the fishing gear guests need regardless of angling methods including spin casting and trolling. Rods, reels, tackle, waders, and flies are also available.
With the Cariboo Mountains surrounding the lodge, extensive backcountry hiking terrain can be found the moment you step outside. The lodge is a great base for guests wishing to hike nearby or up in the alpine heli-hiking areas. Helicopters can be arranged to fly guests over the Cariboo Mountains to incredible locations where guests enjoy spectacular alpine views and hikes among pristine glacier lakes.
For avid backcountry hikers looking for a higher level of adventure, Silvertip Lodge offers the closest access point to the northern more spectacular landscape of Wells Grey Provincial Park. Few hikers have made the trek through much of this area, which remains untouched by human contact.
Activities Around The Lodge
Guests don’t have to go far to enjoy the summer at Silvertip Lodge. A short stroll through nearby trails will bring you to giant cedar trees. Guests may also choose to relax on the sandy beaches of Quesnel Lake. They may decide that sitting on the dock with a drink may be in order, followed by a quick dip in the lake. For those guests who crave a little more activity, yoga accessories are available for use at any time. And finally, to help you unwind, a bit of meditation by the lake, followed by time in the spa is always recommended.
Silvertip Lodge is an ideal location for special events such as family reunions, corporate retreats, weddings, wellness retreats, and more. Please inquire with us about your event or visit our booking page for pricing information.
