Fishing Quesnel Lake is wilderness lake fishing at its finest! This is world renowned trout fishing. Catches of Lake trout of 14 to 18 lbs and Rainbow trout up to 20 lbs are not uncommon.

When fishing Quesnel Lake, you catch and release the big rainbows. Quesnel Lake is believed to be the deepest inland fjord lake in the world. Pristine Quesnel Lake is glacier fed and stretches for 145 km from West to east. Plato Island Resort and Marina with its well protected marina is the perfect jump off point to explore this awesome area and try your hand at fishing Quesnel Lake for some very big trout.
