Bridge Lake

Bridge Lake is situated along the Fishing Highway in the Interlakes area in BC’s Cariboo region. Aptly named for the hundreds of popular lakes that anglers enjoy year-round. In this region, anglers primarily fish for rainbow trout; sometimes for kokanee, char, and brook trout. Various lakes are well known for trophy fishing with rainbow trout often ranging in weight, from 14 to 16 lbs. During the winter ice fishing is also a popular sport and is practiced on many of the lakes in this area. Many of the trails surrounding Bridge Lake and the Interlakes area are excellent for horseback riding. Some of the secluded trails are easily accessible on horseback; anglers often pack their fly-rod on their saddle and embark on a quiet afternoon of fishing and riding. Cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are popular in this area in the winter.

Location

Bridge Lake is located on Hwy 24, midway between Lone Butte and Little Fort, approximately 6 hours northeast of Vancouver via Hwy 5, 2 hours from Kamloops, and 56 km (35 mi) southeast of 100 Mile House on Hwy 97.

A Step Back in Time

The small community of Bridge Lake, located in the Interlakes district of the Southern Cariboo, was originally situated on the historic Fur Brigade Trail. The Fur Brigade Trail dates back to the early pioneer days of fur trading and was a combination of waterways and overland trails, used to connect trading posts. After the construction of the Cariboo Wagon Road during the 1860s the Fur Brigade Trail became redundant.

The beautiful Interlakes area is aptly named the “Fishing Highway”, as anglers can access over 300 lakes, making this one of the best fishing spots in British Columbia.
