fly fishing at salmon lake resort
Fishing is permitted on Salmon Lake annually from May 01 - Nov 01. The Spring fishing at Salmon Lake boasts that of true consistency. The lake's opening date usually falls after turn-over, therefore kicking off a great Spring season of catching Rainbow Trout. Typical hatches of Chironomids and Mayflies are generally the first insect movements. At the same time, Leeches, Freshwater Shrimp (Scuds), Damsel nymphs, Dragonfly nymphs are all on the move as the waters warm up. During the warmer summer months, the fishing remains steady, for those who choose to search the depths with sinking lines. Larger common attractors and Leech imitations are the ticket during the summer fishery. As Fall starts to show it's colors, the waters cool down and fishing can take place in the shallower shoals. Typical Chironomids start re-emerging in smaller amounts. Note that fishing is restricted to artificial flies on a single barbless hook. Please consult the BC Freshwater Fishing Synopsis for more information regarding catch limits and gear restrictions.
Our cozy one and two bedroom furnished cottages provide guests with a beautiful view of Salmon Lake and include a full kitchen with refrigerator, range, cookware, dishes and cutlery. For your comfort, each self-contained unit features electric heat and a wood burning stove, plus a bathroom equipped with a shower. Guests are also able to bring their own BBQ to operate at the resort if they chose. Linens are available by pre-arrangement for those wishing not to pack along personal bedding and towels.
