Fishing Report: The rainbow in Ten Mile Lake will often go to five pounds. Although fishing slows down in the summer, September and October often prove very productive.
Be sure to visit Fishbc.com for angling information!

Viewscape: The rolling hills covered in aspen, cottonwood, Douglas fir and spruce make a scenic backdrop to this popular lake. A number of private residences are dotted along the lake.

Shoreline: Gentle gravelly slopes cover the shore. Bullrushes, cattails and pond lilies are in evidence in the shallow waters. Milfoil is also evident in the lake. Beaver dams are often found at the lake outlet.

Nearby Lakes

Hush Lake: Hush Lake is a small lake north of Ten Mile Lake on Hwy 97. It is about 24 km (14.88 mi.) north of Quesnel. Watch for the Ministry of Highways rest area on the west side of the highway. This tiny lake has been stocked with Eastern Brook Trout, and makes for a delightful flyfishing experience in a canoe or small row boat. This is definately not a trolling and power boat lake. Expect brookies that are about half a pound, two pounds if you're really lucky.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
