For fly fishing enthusiasts, great fly fishing is not limited to just the lake and feeder creeks. Numerous small and intimate stillwaters, some trophy lakes, abound in the region, many less than a half hour from Elysia Resort. These wilderness waters are teeming with fiesty wild rainbow trout. Having seen few people, these trout feed confidently on scuds, leeches, chironomids, caddis flies, mayflies, damselflies, dragonflies and corixa. So, expect unmatched trout fishing action both on the surface with a dry fly and below with nymphs.
Fully guided fishing day trips can be arranged. Prices includes guide, boat & gas, flies, professional fly-fishing and casting instruction and a hearty packed lunch. Our fully-guided destinations include Quesnel Lake and some of BC’s best wilderness rivers; Horsefly River, Mitchell River, Cariboo River or Quesnel River.
If you are new to our area, and it is within your budget, we highly recommend that you hire a guide for at least your first day of fishing. Quesnel Lake especially is a huge water to fish and you will have far better and faster results if you seek the wisdom of a licensed guide. Plus, guided day trips to one or several of our world-class rivers and streams means you’ll have access to some of the best locations. And, you’ll appreciate the experience and knowledge of a professional guide.
Note: Our guides do not live on site and may require a 2-day minimum booking when guiding. One day of guiding may be possible if someone else has booked within the dates you are enquiring.
Choose fully guided or self-guided trout fishing. Elysia Resort is a full-service and affordable resort, open May through September. Bring your own boat or rent one of ours, with or without a guide. So, please, give us a call!
