World Class Backcountry Fishing
From fly fishing to traditional angling, the clear, cold waters of B.C.’s Chilcotin Mountains offer a wide range of fishing opportunities.
The clean, clear waters of Tyaughton Lake are home to beautiful, thick rainbow trout. Or, venture beyond the lodge and explore Mowson Pond, Pearson Pond or Gun Lake. Borrow one of our complimentary canoes and float in peace as you cast away.
Local Rivers & Streams
Moving water puts the mind in a meditative zone, and we have lots of flow to choose from: Gun Creek, the namesake Tyaughton Creek, or Bridge River.
