Author Topic: Advice needed for wedding/fishing weekend!

Trying to plan a casual wedding weekend getaway. Aprox 30 guests. Lots of fisherpeople but also non-fishy types too. Looking for a nice place, not too $$$ but must have indoor plumbing and bedding (for the non-fishy girls), plus a common area for hanging out and the ceremony.

In a perfect world this place would be: fairly secluded, great/good fishing, nice rooms (w/kitchenettes would be fab), a restaurant, activities for non-fishers (hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc.), not more than 4 hours from Vancouver, romantic, with a friendly, casual atmosphere.

Any ideas?

We are looking at the Lac Le Jeune Resort. Has anyone been there? What did you think?

Thanks in advance
The Yak

How about Lightning Lakes Lodge in Manning Park? Its not secluded, but it's got boat rentals and nice accomidations the fish are small but very willing to bite.

my 2 cents

Fraser is doing quite well already and it is going to improve. Your fishermen may want to stay somewhere close to this famous river But at the same time for your non-fishing friends you may offer an option of staying at a nice place with a direct access to a lake.

Manning Park as sugested by Yak is a good option, though it is 70km from Fraser. And here is my favourite place - Lake of the Woods Resort (Hope, BC):

It is located within minutes from great fishing bars on Fraser and at the same time has a direct access to a very scenic Lake of the Woods (

They operate a private restaurant and have a bunch of cabins with kitchens (ask for cabins 5 and 6).

But there are tons of other great places within 4 hour drive from Vancouver

blue lake resort by the boston bar - they have a large log house (restaurant, kithcen, jacuzzi, large fireplace, etc.) and a bunch of cabins. not sure about fraser fishing in boston bar though. lake fishing is good for small trout and it is very warm.

Roche Lake Resort is very nice aswell. It is a first class resort with boat rentals, restaurant, pub, banquet room, swimming pool Deluxe chalets and a great fishing lake. I organize a fishing derby up there every year for 40 plus people. I think there web site is

Good Luck,

Thanks so much for all the replies! Roche Lake is also on our list and Blue Lake sounds very nice as well.

I was at Blue Lake last year and the cabins are kinda rustic and we fished and there was not much action. Roche lake is much nicer and good fishing.
