Flecher can be dynomite fishing in the fall some big bows in there puttin on the feed before winter sets in, also if time alows you should try chuckin a few spinners in the river on the way up from the highway, try the slack water right under the Hancville bridge hudge Steelies sit in there in Oct. have pulled lots out of there in the fall in the 20lb. range.
Best of luck and let me know how you make out please as I won't be able to make it up this year.
In the Backroad Mapbook it says there is accommodation, boat rentals, and some services at Fletcher Lake. Does anyone know if this is right or is this old info? I tried looking online but found nothing. Also what is in Big Creek? Thanks BCKID
As bcadventures.com says:
"From Farwell Canyon you can wind your way on good gravel to the tiny community of Big Creek and then onto some fishing, camping or boating at the BC Forest Service Campsite on Fletcher Lake. From Fletcher Lake the road takes you to Highway 20 and historic Hanceville which is located on the site of an early ranch belonging to Tom Hance. While accessing all the modern amenities of restaurant, store, laundramat and post office, you can admire the distant view of spectacular snowcapped mountains."
There are accomodations at the Big Creek Lodge which are very good and the folks that run it are great. A bit pricey perhaps but remember you are out in the middle of nowheresville. http://www.bigcreeklodgebc.com/
There is also another ranch at Hanceville- the TH Guest Ranch.
A nother case of don't beleive everything you read, allthough the book says that there are so called " modern amenities " at Hanceville they are not much to write home to mom about.
I have used the backroads mapbook on many adventures around the province only to find that what it states and shows are not always acurate.
So word of caution people don't always take what you read at face value.
These areas are only a short distance from the center of Williams lake but as previously stated "you are out in the middle of nowheresville. "
It is however beautiful country up there with fantastic fishing and hunting opertunities so anyone who is prepared and enjoys the great outdoors will have a great time.
