Thoughts from our guides on best angling times:
May - May can be one of a months on and around Quesnel Lake therefore we usually have the water all to ourselves. The leaves basically needs to bud, springtime plants are blooming and due to the deep snowfall when you look at the high country, the wildlife is abundant along the shorelines. The Rainbow trout are close to the end of the spawning, as well as the non-spawners are predating the eggs. Might normally an occasion when the alveins (child salmon) are making their way to avoid it of this creeks and to the pond. The water is reduced and clean, while the huge seafood tend to be going out on shoals and across the creek mouths.
Summer - Although the snowfall is starting to melt, and run off from creeks and rivers make the pond murky and high, the salmon fry tend to be needs to move around the lake in huge bait balls. Find the bait, you will find an abundance of trout. Small stillwaters are excellent all month in June. There is certainly often good dry-fly fishing.
July - This is basically the month the dried out flies start to hatch regarding the streams. Morning hours and night angling can be needed for little Lakes. The big pond is generally great although summer can indicate we have to hunt a tad bit more. By mid-july the rivers are at their utmost.
August - August is still good river fishing. The top lake creek mouths may be great with big fish cruising the deeper drop offs trying to find bait (salmon fry). Near the end of August the Sockeye salmon begin to enter Quesnel River. This is the start of the extremely interesting autumn season.
September - There are many more salmon into the lake, during the creek mouths as well as in the streams, providing united states sufficient opportunity to capture trout being predating the salmon eggs. The Lake trout (a.k.a. Lake Char, Laker) in addition start to spawn in September, however they should be fished in the evening when they gather on shoals near the creek mouths. The major lake is excellent today, due to the great variety of salmon fry feeding on or close to the area.
October - October brings great egg structure fishing, also nymphing and money tailing. We often discover huge schools of Salmon and Kokanee Fry feeding on plankton. Egg habits and flesh flies work very well. There are few various other fishermen around at this time of the year. Benefit from the "Indian summertime, " the autumn colors, in addition to solitude.
