    Area Data

    Big Lake is an historic ranching district 59 km northeast of Williams Lake on the Likely Road in the Cariboo region of BC. The lake is 1,410 acres at 2,669 feet elevation with a mean depth of 44 ft and maximum depth of 134 ft. It offers good fishing for lake char, rainbow trout, Kokanee and eastern brook trout. The rainbows and Kokanee average 1-2 pounds and trolling is the popular fishing method, although fly fishing and spin-casting meet with success. The lake trout can be trophy size with reports of 30 pounders and rainbows weighing as much as 12 pounds. The best fishing occurs in early and late summer, but it will produce action throughout the season.

    The area was first settled in the 1890s by William Parker, who established Big Lake Ranch and operated an early stagecoach express service. Big Lake Ranch no longer exists, except as the post office name, which has been retained by popular demand despite attempts by postal authorities in the 1980’s to change it to Big Lake.
