The lake is ideal for fly fishing and conventional trolling methods using spinning gear, flatfish, and small spoons.

    In the fall and wintertime, activities change a bit. With September and October, the hunting season starts.

Once hunting season has ended, the lake begins to freeze and soon the sports of ice fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hockey, and skating take over.

    History

    The name ‘Takysie’ means ‘lake of many fishes.’ Takysie Lake is approximately 23 km south of Burns Lake. Burns Lake's first inhabitants were the Carrier First Nations communities that spanned much of the Lakes District and beyond.

    Burns Lake itself began as a small rest stop for travellers on their way to the Yukon Gold Rush. Many of these travellers spotted opportunity in the rich forestry, fur, and mining opportunities in Burns Lake and the surrounding area.

    Burns Lake acquired its name after Michael Byrnes, who was an explorer for the Collins Overland Telegraph scheme. Byrnes passed Burns Lake in about 1866 while surveying a route from Fort Fraser to Hagwilget. Recent research indicates that Byrnes was also a miner during the Cariboo Gold Rush and had staked a claim on William's Creek earlier, in 1861. On the 1866 trail map of the area, the name 'Byrnes' Lake appears; after 1876 however, the maps indicate it as Burns Lake.
