Spent 9 days at Quesnel lake campground, had a great time, lots of swimming and fishing. The fishing was great with the bigger fish starting to show up on the reefs. Caught what we call the Grand Slam ( 5 different species ), tons of wallys, 1 whitefish, jumbo perchies, monster smallies and loads of pike. Will be going back soon I hope. :fish2:

I want to take my son out for some roughing it this year. We have done a ton of smoothing it trips this year already. This might be a great location for the roughing it trip.

It's not the best of campgrounds but I still go back year after year,, Been going since I was a kid. The rates are a little high at $17 a night with no fire wood But u can buy from the lodge. They also have cabin rentals, boat rentals, bait, ice, and other necessities. Always see some kind of wildlife like moose and bears. Got to Love the Nop. Give me a holler if anyone needs tips on Hot Spots :cool:

Is it possible to tow in a pop up trailor with a van up the road to Quesnal lake. Have not been there for many years and would love to stay in my pop up trailor vs my 4 man tent.

Man that camp brings back fond memories... I used to stay at the lodge every year with my grandfater and my dad. One of the best parts was the woman who owned/managed the place. Being a young man in my teens and seeing those guns right through her tight white shirts was a game changer... :twisted: fap fap fap...

In the early season, fish shallow. Fish the edge of the currents where the lakes meet. Fish under the falls at the Manigotogan River where it enters the lake. You'll get big bass, walleye and the odd big pike under there. Probably my favorite place on earth to cast a jig - for sentimental reasons more so.

Tried to attach a shot of the falls from Goog but it doesn't want to work. Like Backroad Benny I agree this is one of the best paces to start with and then move from there. I always fish the big falls
(Manigatogan) more so then the small ones but they both have produced well over the years. I always fish some sweet spots on the left shore on the way to the big falls.

The funniest part of it is how true it is/was.


So I heard they fixed the road Fishfreak, but you can get a pop up in there now? It used to be about an 8 soda-road and its only about 10kms.

They've worked on it a bit, it's about a 3 to 4 soda road now, no problems pulling in a camper or bigger boat, just have to go slower and enjoy the scenery and not to beat up ur equipment too bad ;)

Haha love the comments guys! I'm also heading in May long weekend for some fishing. Give me a holler if you see me, (red lund) most likely be a few of us. Some big bass and nice walleye in that lake. I havent even tried the reef yet. Anyone point me in the direction of where it is?

Thanks

I have a cabin rented at the lodge for may long, hoping for some good action. the reef is at the north end of manigotagan just south of the point on the east side.

Hey Backroad Benny: I can sure relate to the "BIG GUNS" on Lynne i think that was her name but who cared!! We were on a canoe trip and spent a few days on big Clearwater lake and decided to go to the bar at the lodge,well if someone would have seen the look on the four of our faces when she rounded the corner seeing her cutting grass in her daisy dukes and tanks top that you could cut ice with,WOW it still brings back good memories and she was also the bartender!! oh ha the fishing was great too!!
