    Location

    6796 Tatlayoko Road - Tatla Lake, BC

    Access

    From Williams Lake, travel west through the Chilcotin 220 km to the community of Tatla Lake. Just before you enter Tatla Lake from the east, there is a road on the left, Tatlayoko Road, which leads to the Tatlayoko Valley. Continue on for approximately 24 km, and the driveway will be on your right-hand side.

    Area Data

    Tatla Lake is the hub for the surrounding area, which includes Westbranch and the Tatlayoko Valley. The Tatla Lake region initially drew settlers into the area looking to graze cattle. This becomes evident as you travel past lush fields, pasture and long segments of “Chilcotin fences.” The expansive Chilcotin lies between the Fraser River and Coast Mountains. This unique region sits on a 5,000 square kilometre plateau much of which is used as rangeland. There are thousands of cattle which roam unfenced across the plateau. Here cowboys ride the range to tend their cattle, roping and branding the calves in the spring, keeping them from straying in summer, and rounding them up in the fall.

    The jagged mountain peaks of the Chilcotin are covered in vast ice fields and wide alpine meadows, gradually softening into large valleys, gently rolling foothills, pine covered forests, lakes and rivers and the grasslands of the Chilcotin Plateau. Some of British Columbia’s most pristine back country is located in the Chilcotin with some of the clearest fishing lakes and rivers to be found in North America.

    The community members of Tatla Lake are very active and participate in many activities year-round including cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting and other local sponsored events. The area is also known for its many tour operators that offer anything from ranch vacations, trail rides, fishing trips, hiking, wildlife viewing and hunting.

    Recreation

    This area offers immense opportunity for vacation adventure. Outdoor recreation and activities are endless in the Chilcotin. You can enjoy fishing on one of the many rivers and lakes for Dolly Varden and rainbow trout. Or you may simply wish to come and view one of the largest annual runs of sockeye salmon in British Columbia. Every year, from mid-August to mid-October, hundreds of thousands of salmon return to their spawning grounds. During this time, grizzly bear sightings are common and as they feast on the spawning salmon.

    Experiencing the Chilcotin on horseback is the preferred method of transportation if you wish to truly explore the Chilcotin. There are endless areas to trail ride and explore. River kayaking, rafting, windsurfing and kite boarding in the clean, beautiful waters of Tatlayoko and Chilko Lake are also very popular recreational activities. Hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snow machining or canoeing are also great recreational activities in this area.

    History

    The first people to live in Tatla Lake were the Tsilhqot'in (Chilcotin) First Nations people. Ranching began in 1890 with the influx of early pioneers. A post office was established on the Graham Ranch in 1914 with Mrs. Graham as postmistress for mail that only came once a month at first. Over the years a school, community hall, and nursing station were added.
