Small & Intimate Stillwaters
Great flyfishing is not limited to only the large lake and its feeder creeks. In fact, small stillwaters abound in this Cariboo region, offering yet another angling experience.

These intimate stillwaters boast large numbers of trout, which feed confidently on scuds, leeches, chironomids, caddis flies, mayflies, damselflies, dragonflies and corixa.

These complex aquatic hatches can lead to unmatched action both on the surface with a dry fly and below with nymphs.

This is really an intimate experience where you will feel at harmony with the wilderness around you. Your soul will be recharged listening to the call of the loons and contemplating the gentler aspects of life. It is also not uncommon to see a moose swim by or watch a loon dive after your fish. More often than not, you will be the only person on the lake.

And, the good news is that these small and intimate stillwaters, some trophy lakes, of which there are several, are less than a half hour from Elysia Resort.

Some of the lakes within an easy half hour drive of Elysia Resort are Keno, Klinne, Hen Ingram, Osley, Melissa, and more. All offer rewarding angling experiences.
