Elysia Resort is situated in remote wilderness on the shores of Quesnel Lake in British Columbia, Canada. Our location, east of the community of Williams Lake, in historic Cariboo Gold Rush Country, means we are surrounded by mountains and meadows with countless rivers and small lakes that are teeming with trout.
Elysia Resort sits on the shores of Quesnel Lake, the deepest fjord, or glacially formed lake on earth. As a result, of our unique location, this is also home to a very large strain of aggressive Rainbow Trout. This makes Elysia Resort one of Canada’s premier trout fishing destinations.
