Enjoy picture perfect scenery, fishing for exceptional rainbow trout and a friendly welcome.With a length of 9 miles and a surface area of over 4000 acres, this is the largest lake in the area. The lake itself has many small islands which can provide adventures of their own.
Sheridan Lake, located in the Interlakes district of Cariboo Chilcotin, is a 1659 hectare (4098 acre) spring fed lake, with miles of shoreline and shoals. The average Rainbow weighs 3½ pounds and it is common to catch fish 10 pounds or more! This is due to the abundant shrimp and insect populations that encourage a rapid growth rate.
Sheridan Lake, on Hwy 24, is located 35 km (22 Miles) east of 93 Mile House (off Hwy 97). Turn right at the Sheridan Lake Store onto Magnussen Road. Sheridan Lake Resort is only an 8-hour drive from Seattle or 5 ½ hours from Vancouver. If coming in from Kamloops, take the Yellowhead (Hwy 5) to Little Fort, then head west on Hwy 24.
