Fishing Report: Chaunigan is a very special lake. Surrounded by spectacular scenery and offering exceptional fishing. Wild Chilcotin rainbows averaging 18 - 20 inches, with some fish going to 8 lbs. Consistent fishing from June through mid September. Truly a great fly fishing lake with a remarkable caddis hatch.
