Day Lake

Attraction: Fishing, Ice Fishing, Scenery | Fish: Rainbow Trout

Day Lake is an excellent lake for fishing, and on a calm evening you can see the rainbow trout jumping for flies on the water. In the winter, this area is popular for snowmobiling and ice fishing. Many moose and deer have been seen both in the field and by the lake in the evening.

From Burns Lake go west towards Houston and Smithers. At 34 kilometres (21 miles) just past Duncan Lake gas stop turn left (south) onto Forestdale Canyon Road (a good all weather gravel road). At 37 kilometres (23 miles) you come to a junction, turn right. At 39 kilometres (24 miles) turn left and follow the main road over the railroad tracks and Bulkley River.
