There is an abundance of scenic areas to explore by boat, canoe, hiking, biking or driving. We are an easy 1 1/2 hour drive to Likely and Quesnel Forks, and a 45 minute drive to Quesnel Lake. A provincial park with a sandy beach is located approximately 15 minutes from Horsefly Landing, which has an easy hike with a spectacular view of the lake.
You can swim, kayak, canoe, fish, or simply relax, enjoy the peace and quiet, and listen to the loons.
The Horsefly Area has some of the finest fishing in the Cariboo with the Horsefly River supporting the second largest Sockeye run in the province. The numerous smaller lakes in the area provide excellent fishing for Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout and Kokanee (a land locked salmon). Horsefly Lake itself is predominantly fished by trolling with Rainbow Trout up to 12 pounds and Lake Trout in excess of 30 pounds available to the lucky fisherman. Much smaller Kokanee are also plentiful. The Horsefly River is catch and release for lare Rainbow and Dolly Varden Trout, the smaller lakes in the area provide excellent fly fishing for Rainbow Trout. Most fishing is unguided although guides are available locally.
