Report: One of the jewels of the Cariboo, Dragon Lake
is the home of trophy size rainbows. Twelve pounders are caught
on a regular basis and because of such great fishing, this lake
is often featured on TV fishing programs. All methods of fishing
work well, however, Dragon Lake is considered a fly fisher's dream.
If you are visiting the Quesnel/Barkerville area, fishing this lake
for that trophy rainbow should be high on your list of priorities.
Dragon Lake is situated among moderately hilly terrain which is
80% forested in apen, birch and Douglas
fir. The remaining 20% consists of farm and pasture land. Many
residences are found on the west and north side of the lake.
Sandy gravelly soil and black loamy soil surround the lake. Cattail
and soft-stem bullrushes are found around most of the shoreline.
