The fishing is absolutely awesome in this large untouched lake. Trolling for trout is a great way to fish Trembleur Lake. This big, wild lake is home to Kokanee, lake trout and trophy-sized rainbow trout, as well as salmon and sturgeon. Its varied shoreline provides numerous coves and bays to explore which include some native pictographs.
Flowing from Takla Lake into Trembleur Lake is the Middle River, which reportedly has phenomenal fishing. Brian Smith, author of Fly Fishing BC's Interior, says that the Middle River is definitely on his must-fish list. The Middle River provides critical habitat for sockeye, and also supports white sturgeon.

Trembleur Lake is a lake in the Omineca Country of the Central Interior of British Columbia, northwest of Fort St. James between Stuart Lake and the south end of Takla Lake. It is part of the Nechako Lakes. Its name in the Dakelh language is Dzindlat Bun. It has also been known as Cross Lake. Trembleur Lake Provincial Park is on its north shore, above the Middle River. The reserve settlement of Middle River is at that river's mouth into Trembleur Lake.
Fort St. James is a district municipality and former fur trading post in north-central British Columbia. It is located on the south-eastern shore of Stuart Lake in the Omineca Country, at the northern terminus of Highway 27, which connects to Highway 16 at Vanderhoof.
The community celebrated its bicentennial in 2016 and is incorporated as a district municipality.
The settlement on the north side of Trembleur Lake at Middle River can be reached from the Leo Creek Forest Service Road. Access to the lake from Stuart Lake is via the Tachie River; this 26 kilometre river can be a challenge to navigate with fast water and small rapids.
Popular sport fish include Dolly Varden, rainbow trout, lake trout (char), Kokanee, freshwater ling cod (burbot), and mountain whitefish. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Refer to the current BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis for specific catch quotas and regulations; the Stuart-Trembleur-Takla chain of waterways is in Region 7 (Omineca-Peace)—Zone A.
Trembleur Lake is open to hunting during the lawful game season. See the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for further details.
The lake is known for its beautiful clear water and excellent swimming conditions.
As part of his commission from the North West Company, Fraser and his assistants John Stuart and James McDougall explored potential river routes to the Pacific Ocean from 1805 through 1808. Explorations in the winter of 1805-06 by McDougall resulted in the discovery of Carrier's Lake, now known as Stuart Lake. In the heart of territory inhabited by the Carrier or Dakelh First Nation, this proved to be a lucrative locale for fur trading and so a post, Fort St. James, was built on its shore in 1806. In 1821, the fort came under the control of the Hudson's Bay Company when the North West Company merged with it. It subsequently became the administrative headquarters of the Company's vast New Caledonia District.
The fur trade was slow to take root in the area, since the economy of the Dakelh people had been based on the fishery, rather than on trapping. In addition, there were customary and ceremonial restrictions which placed obstacles in the way of an efficient fur economy. Nonetheless, eventually the post became profitable, and continued to function until its closure in 1952.
The community is located on the south-eastern shore of Stuart Lake, at the head of the Stuart River. Both the lake and the river are named for Fraser's assistant John Stuart, who would later become head of the New Caledonia District of the North West Company.
