Rock Island Lake Fishing Camp

Activities: Fly Fishing, Nature, Photography,

Join Dave and Jeannie Cadsand at Rock Island Lake Fishing Camp for a fly-fishing adventure in the heart of British Columbia. Enjoy guided or unguided trips to wilderness BC lakes, gourmet meals, cozy log cabins, and the call of the loon. Rock Island Lake is located an hour and a half north of Kamloops in British Columbia's world renowned trout fishing region. We are now licenced in over fifty lakes. Day trips, and overnight camps available with advance notice. We are fortunate that all the lakes have only one species, "wild Kamloops rainbow trout". The rainbow trout vary in size from pan fry size to . . .?; the largest was caught in 1996 and hit the scales at 8.5 pounds!

For your comfort we have six cozy log cabins fully equipped for housekeeping with propane cook tops, wood heaters, bedding, towels, cooking and eating utensils and cold running water. Firewood and kindling are at your door. There is an ample supply of ice for your portable coolers. Showers, flush toilets and plenty of hot water are all centrally located. Home Cooked Meals, Jeannie has several different menus, and special diets can be accommodated if notified in advance. You can enjoy hearty home cooked meals in the lodge or do your own cooking in the cabin.

The staff at Rock Island Lake Fishing Camp will gladly clean your fish, ice or smoke them if you wish (smoked trout from Rock Island is a delicious treat). The BC Interior is fortunate to enjoy four distinct seasons. Each season offers its own brand of outdoor recreational activities. Come November, when the snow falls, the landscape changes and a subtle white stillness covers the land. It's a time for a BC winter wonderland getaway. Rock Island features interesting and exciting adventures in the snow. Wintertime at Rock Island means cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, skating or a guided nature trip with a chance to photograph our wilderness animals and birds.

Frank & Emee's Cottage on the Lake

Activities: Fishing, Nature, Photography, Hiking, Snowmobiling

Welcome to beautiful Charlotte Lake in the B.C. Chilcotin region. This stress free wilderness paradise is yours to enjoy. Whether you just want to sit around, relax, and enjoy the scenery, or fish for Rainbow Trout and Kokanee, this is the spot to be. Peace and tranquility at its best. We are committed to ensuring this is your adventure of a lifetime. Whether it be a perfect, peaceful evening relaxing with a fishing rod in the boat or capturing the beauty of British Columbia's Coast Mountains on film, you won't find a more beautiful spot for a restful vacation away from it all.

Charlotte Lake is big and beautiful! It stretches about 20 km long by about 6 km wide. This fishing paradise has beautiful snow-capped mountains on its western shore and is loaded with mas

+er angler Rainbow Trout as well as Kokanee. Generally Rainbow Trout average 3-5 BLS., but much larger ones are often caught. The shoreline is covered with sand and gravel beaches and the lake is surrounded by a pine forest. Charlotte Lake's water is clear and deep. Because of this, Charlotte Lake's water is very cold but if you wish to lay around on a nice sandy beach, there are sandy beaches on both sides of us. The water in this lake is Glacial runoff and as such is excellent for drinking.

This is not your average cabin, this is a full blown cottage with all the fix'ins of home. With 3 bedrooms, there is ample space to accommodate 3 couples or your entire family. This cottage is fully heated and insulated for year round use to take advantage of the excellent snowmobiling, X coutry skiing and ice fishing opportunities. At night, you may just want to kick back and relax around a fire by the lakeshore, where we have a fire pit and a picnic table for your enjoyment.
Fish from shore or rent a 14 ft. fishing boat w/10 HP motor to get you where you want to be.

Driving here would undoubtedly provide the scenic drive of a lifetime. The most preferred option is to fly via Pacific Coastal Airlines, located on the south side of Vancouver International Airport. They have flights to Anahim Lake from Vancouver daily in the summer months and pickups are available to drive you to the cottage as are fly-in charters.
