"Wild Trout, Never Caught Before!"

Northern Lights Lodge is a BC Fly Fishing Lodge that offers world-class guided Fly Fishing! Join us at our historic lodge and let us show you the pristine wilderness rivers and lakes of the Cariboo Mountains!

World-Class Rainbow Trout Fly Fishing!

This is what Fly Fishing is supposed to be! Wild fish in wild places! The Quesnel drainage is home to some of the most aggressive rainbow trout in the world and they are 100% native to these waters! More often than not the local rainbows are eager to eat dry fly patterns! Want to catch a rainbow on a mouse? We would be disappointed if you only caught one!



Northern Lights Lodge has been a sought-after BC fishing destination for more than 60 years. We combine the heritage and hospitality of an old time wilderness fishing lodge with modern conveniences and the comforts of home. So, come be our guest. With breathtaking views of beautiful Quesnel Lake, you will enjoy a warm welcome and home cooked meals. Oh, and did we mention big aggressive trout?


All of our packages are full service and include airport pickup and drop off in Williams Lake along with fully guided Fly Fishing deep in the most remote parts of the Cariboo Mountains of BC! Trips also include, lodging, home-cooked style meals served with fine wine & beer at no additional charge. SINGLE BOOKINGS AVAILABLE and we are happy to customize a trip to suit your schedule. We take care of everything from arrival to departure!

Trophy Trout Lakes


We make every effort to go where others won’t! These trips begin in May and are available until mid October. We would recommend booking for Spring or Fall! We primarily fish for both native and stocked rainbow trout. We have no shortage of Stillwater opportunities around the lodge and Lake Trout and Bull Trout outings are also a possibility for those who are interested. Suitable for all skill levels!


Guided 2 anglers per 1 guide our summer rainbow trout dry fly fishing is incredible. Walk and wade, jet boat and drifting some of the most beautiful rivers in the world. Early summer caddis and epic July stonefly hatches keep the trout looking up until the salmon begin staging in late August! If you enjoy trout spey the summer is an excellent time to swing some buggers or skate big foam! Suitable for all skill levels!
Sept- October 15th
It's Trophy Time!


Cast egg patterns & streamers behind spawning salmon to catch some very large trout! When the salmon move through the big fish follow them up to their spawning grounds. This makes for dynamite fly fishing and excellent opportunities to see grizzly bears and birds of prey on the rivers! This is something everyone needs to experience! If you are after bull trout the Fall season is the most productive. Suitable for all skill levels.

Meet One of Our Rivers...

Fly Fusion TV and Scientific Anglers teamed up to produce six short films based on their popular television series. In this episode, co-hosts Jim McLennan and Derek Bird join Skeed from Northern Lights Lodge as they explore the Quesnel River, one of the four vastly different rivers we fly fish. As the Quesnel River leaves the lake it's a slow and meandering trout 'stream'. After a few miles, the river transforms into a powerful and erosive force moving quickly through the sparsely inhabited region, affording exciting fly fishing along the way.

“Picture yourself standing in untouched water in the middle of the wilderness with trout dancing around your fly. You stop for a moment to look around and realize that you find yourself right in the middle of Eden fishing for world class wild native rainbow trout.”
