Welcome to Fraser Lake - the White Swan Capital of the world

You’ll be dreaming in colour when you get a look at our rainbow trout, and that’s no fish tale. Welcome to the Fraser Lake community, where outdoor living reigns and the fishing is fine.

Head to the Bulkley-Nechako region of central British Columbia, where one of the largest lakes in the province is a stone’s throw from the shortest river in the world.

The Village of Fraser Lake is nestled in the heart of some of British Columbia’s most beautiful scenery. The area can boast of 170 lakes within a 50 mile radius and is the temporary home to over 1000 Trumpeter Swans, making it the Swan Capital of the world. It’s a playground of water and natural wonderland, where you can try your luck for trout or char in the Fraser and Francois Lakes, or the Nautley or Stellako River, world-famous for its fly-fishing and spin casting. An abundance of big game, migratory birds and world class fly-fishing, spin casting and canoeing, make Fraser Lake a fabulous outdoor recreation community.

Hiking trails begin right at the Village’s doorstep atop Mouse Mountain which resembles – what else – a large mouse. The extinct volcanic activity at Red Rock, Cheslatta Falls 59 km (37 miles) south and the pictographs along Fraser Lake are only a few of the area’s fabulous sights.

From its humble beginnings in the early 1900’s, Fraser Lake Sawmill (owned and operated by West Fraser Timber Company Ltd.) has evolved into one of the world’s most modern sawmills. Endako Molybdenum Mines was at one time the second largest Molybdenum Mine in the world. Endako Mine and Fraser Lake Sawmill employs the majority of Fraser Lake residents.

The Recreation & Business Expo will be held at the Fraser Lake Arena on Saturday, April 25th.  If you are interested in booking a table pick up a form from the Village Office or the Visitor Information Centre.  Contact Jolene for more information at 250-699-8844.

Fraser Lake Minor Hockey is excited to have been given the honor of hosting this years 2015 tier 4 Bantam Championships.

     To view the game schedules click here.

     This event always promises not only fantastic hockey including teams from around the province but also brings excitement and energy to the host town.

     There will be 6 teams playing off this year. This means our town will have the opportunity to see these athletes and in many cases their families, in our restaurants, in our stores, our hotels and of course around town.

     We are hoping families will come out to enjoy the great hockey with high caliber reffing and that the kids watching these games get inspired to want to try the sport and with any luck, love the sport.

     Fraser Lake may be small but we have a lot of heart and I know we can show a lot of spirit and plan a great championship tournament.

    Look for ways to participate during March 15-20, contact Donya Nicol at 250-699-1777.

     Hope to see you all there.
