by spectacular scenery and offering exceptional fishing. Wild Chilcotin
rainbows averaging 18 - 20 inches, with some fish going to 8 lbs.
Consistent fishing from June through mid September. Truly a great
fly fishing lake with a remarkable caddis hatch. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Chaunigan lies in a spectacular setting of 100% moderately forested
hills of spruce and Lodgepole
pine, highlighted in the background by beautiful snowcapped
