Log home, Lac Des Roches
Here's a fine example of a gorgeous log home on beautiful Lac des Roches. The lake is about 8km long and has a fine fishery for both Kamloops and Gerrard Rainbow trout.
No Place like Home!
Interior shot of a log home. The warmth and elegance of a log home is hard to beat. In most cases, the natural finish of the wood is varnished. Some commercial buildings and lodges can be as high as 4 stories
Finished log home
Many homes have rather high steep roofs to enable them to shed the heavy snowfalls that sometimes occurr in the central Cariboo.
More on log homes...
The photo shows a log home under construction. Each log is carefully peeled, then shaped and notched to fit the other logs in the assembly. Typically, logs can be more than 18 inches in diameter. Many of the log homes are exported world-wide, particularly Japan.

Lorin Lake trout
When I fished Lorin Lake a few years ago, the rainbows were enormous...some up to 15 pounds. My personal best was about 12 pounds taken on a green sedge.This is a smaller one, about 7 pounds, taken on a mayfly pattern. The flesh of these fish is bright orange red but can...
Another huge rainbow!
The mark of a good fighting rainbow is its ability to leap and run when hooked. You had better have lots of backing line on your fly reel!
Green Lake, a great family lake
Needless to say, Green Lake takes its name from the intense blue-green colour of its water. Although not a prime fishing lake it has a good stock of rainbows and Kokanee. It's primarily a base camp from which to explore the thousands of other lakes in the area.
