For many residents in the Cariboo, ice fishing is synonymous with winter.
For those not wishing to travel a great distance to try their luck at the winter sport, Reservoir Lake just north of Williams Lake is a great alternative.
Reservoir Lake is stocked every spring with both Eastern Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout. Last May, the ministry released 1,000 catchable-sized rainbows and 3,000 fingerling-size brookies into the lake.
The ministry also built docks at the small lake in recent years to provide better access and recreational opportunities for those wishing to fish.
