    Area Data

    Bridge Lake

    Bridge Lake, in the beautiful Interlake District on Highway 24, is within the South Cariboo region of BC. This unincorporated recreational community is at the eastern end of Bridge Lake, midway between Lone Butte and Little Fort. A tranquil and beautiful area of rolling hills and pine forests, also showcases a myriad of lakes loaded with rainbow trout, lake trout, brook trout, and Kokanee. Bridge and Sheridan Lakes are the largest lakes in this area.

    Amenities in this small community include The Bridge Lake Store, which provides auto and cylinder propane, gas, diesel, and marked gas. It also stocks a wide variety of goods—fishing tackle, live bait, government liquor, groceries, camping supplies and a post office. A sizeable General Store stocks clothes, gifts, home decorations and the best ice cream cones. A family dining and lounge restaurant along with a well-stocked hardware store round out this Bridge Lake shopping centre.

    100 Mile House

    100 Mile House is the primary service centre for the South Cariboo and has a population of approximately 2,000. The staple industries of 100 Mile House are forestry and ranching. Log home building and tourism are also an essential part of the community. This region features hundreds of lakes and is a significant attraction for cross country skiers. The town has an aerodrome, with 108 Mile Ranch having the closest regional airport.

    Recreation

    Appropriately referred to as the “Fishing Highway,” anglers can access multitudes of lakes, making this one of the best fishing places in BC.

    Bridge Lake has numerous bays and both large and small islands, offering excellent fishing for rainbow trout, lake trout (lake char) and Kokanee, as well as lingcod and burbot. June offers the best fishing for Kokanee, a favourite among anglers. Spring and early summer is the best time for rainbow trout.

    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. There are trails for ATVs, mountain bikes and hikers setting out on a wilderness trek.

    Bridge Lake Provincial Park was recently enlarged from 11 to 405 hectares. At the south end of Bridge Lake, this area is essential for local recreation as a camping and day hiking site. Wildlife viewing, and horseback riding on old logging and skid trails, provide excellent access into tranquil areas. Canoeing and paddle boarding, swimming, boating and relaxing on a beach can be enjoyed here, and at the many forestry recreation sites in the area.

    Winter brings cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on epic rounded hills and snow carpeted meadows. The Bridge Lake snowmobile club is an excellent resource for a wide range of tracked and untracked trails. Winter ice fishing proves a popular sport in many of the lakes in the area. Bridge Lake features the fascinating Bridge Lake Ice Caves, accessed from the top of a hill on the southern shoreline of the Lake.

    Ancient information is that First Nations and pioneers collected ice from the caves summer. Depending on the year, there was ice all year-round.

    History

    Highway 24 first opened in 1967. The small community of Bridge Lake, located in the Interlakes district of the Southern Cariboo, was initially situated on the historic Fur Brigade Trail. The Fur Brigade Trail dated 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.
