The Horsefly/ Quesnel Lake area is known for its gold rush, and pioneer history and residents enjoy year-round abundant outdoor activities amongst remote natural splendor. Quesnel Lake is a glacial lake or fjord in British Columbia and is the major tertiary of the Fraser River. With a maximum depth of 610 meters, it is claimed to be the deepest fjord lake in the world, the fifth-deepest lake in BC, and the deepest lake in the Cariboo Region. It has almost 600 km (360 miles) of shoreline distributed among the three arms - West, East and North. In the heart of the Cariboo Mountains, it has stunning scenery including sandy beaches and ancient cedar rainforests up the North Arm and fjord-like rock walls and our own Niagara Falls up the East Arm. It lies just to the west of three provincial parks - Bowron Lake, Cariboo Mountains, and Wells Gray. The principal interest in Quesnel Lake is its fishery. It is a popular sport fishing destination and is also home to about a quarter of BC's sockeye salmon.
