I have posted a new property at Lot 7 Fawn Creek RD in 100 Mile House.

5.53 acres within a few minutes walk to Fawn Lake for great fly fishing. Less than 1⁄2 hour to the town of 100 Mile House. Ten minutes to Lone Butte, or Interlakes Corner for all of your basic shopping needs. This property is in just a few kilometres off of the famous Highway 24 (“The Fish- ing Highway”). Driveway is in. Power is at the lot line. Access to Crown land at the lot line as well. This would make a great building lot or recreational getaway.

Fishing Report:

Fawn Lake is a small but very productive rainbow lake. Rainbows in the 5 lb class are common. However, due to the presence of Lake Chubb as feed, much larger rainbows in the 10 to 12 lb. range have been reported. Lake Trout are also present. Spinning, and trolling have met with suc- cess, but this peaceful lake has earned a reputation with fly fishers. It is reported that there is a large chironomid hatch in the spring which fly fishermen should watch for.

HISTORY

Lone Butte

Gateway to the Interlakes area, Lone Butte is a small community on Hwy 24 about 11 miles east of 93 Mile House. Once one of the Cariboo's largest towns, Lone Butte was a centre for ranchers who settled in the area, from the early 1900's to the 1950's. Cattle were driven here and shipped by rail. The old log Lone Butte Hotel, now gone, used to house many a famous person, including the occasional movie star. All the amenities including a general store, cafe, neighborhood pub, sporting goods store, craft shop, service station and post office can be found in this friendly south Cariboo village. Resorts and accommodations are available in the surrounding area which fea- tures over 50 lakes. The Lone Butte, an extinct volcano core, for which the community is named, is seen to the east. A historic water tower, formerly used by passing steam engines, has been pre- served in the town site.

100 Mile House

100 Mile House has a long history on the gold rush trail, a momentous period in B.C. History. It all started at Mile “0”, Lillooet , and 100 Miles from that became the name of the town, 100 Mile House. Today, 100 Mile House is known for its vast beautiful areas, abundance of lakes and rec- reation, and tourism. Approx 5 hours from Vancouver, it makes this area a perfect get-away spot or place to live. An area many people have called “The Hidden Gem of British Columbia”.
