Dragon Lake Rainbow Trout

Fishing Report: One of the jewels of the Cariboo, Dragon Lake is the home of trophy size rainbows. Twelve pounders are caught on a regular basis and because of such great fishing, this lake is often featured on TV fishing programs. All methods of fishing work well, however, Dragon Lake is considered a fly fisher's dream. If you are visiting the Quesnel/Barkerville area, fishing this lake for that trophy rainbow should be high on your list of priorities.
