217 km. (135 mi.) west of Williams
Lake. From Williams Lake, turn west onto Hwy 20. Continue past
Chilanko Forks and the Pyper Lake turnoff. Continue on Hwy 20 watching
for a well marked road to Eagle Lake on the south (left) of the
highway. The south west end of Eagle Lake is only a short distance
off the highway. This is also the road that leads to Cochin, Taltayoko
and Choelquolt Lakes.
All facilities and services can be found at the nearby community
of Tatla Lake. Eagle Lake has an open meadow BCFS campsite where
cartop boats can be launched.

Report: 2 lb. rainbows seem to be common with the odd
fish going up to 8 lbs. Trolling is the most popular method of fishing
on Eagle Lake. Fishing is good from the beginning of June through
the summer months (unless the weather gets too hot) and on into
the fall. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Situated among rolling hills which are heavily forested with Lodgepole
pine. 20 to 30 miles west of Eagle Lake, the Coast Mountains begin.
Gravel and rocky beaches dotted with heavy dense alder bush.
Lake - Cochin Lake, located just south of Eagle on
the Tatlayoko Lake Road. Branch east onto the Chilko Lake access
road for about 1 1/2 km. (1 mi.) and then turn north (left) and
travel about 1 km (1/2 mi.) to a BCFS campsite on the lake. Wild
rainbows that average in the 3 to 4 lb. range are usually caught
with trolling gear (especially with Hot Shots and flat fish),
but are equally attracted to flies. 10 pounders are not all that
uncommon, making Cochin a lake well worth visiting.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
