Welcome to Opatcho Lake
Opatcho Lk. Outfitters offers big game hunting adventures in the heart of BC’s prime wilderness. Specializing in quality Canadian Moose hunting, Black Bear hunts, Grizzly Bear, Mule Deer, White Tail Deer and Wolf hunts. We also book Winter Predator hunts for Cougar and Lynx.
Our guiding territory is rich in hunting heritage under the former guide outfitters “Fred Colebank and Ralph Maida” offering first class British Columbia hunts for over 50 years. The present Outfitter “Ken Watson” has extensive knowledge of the area having worked with Fred and Ralph for the last 21 years.
Our beautiful main Lodge is situated on the shores of crystal-clear Opatcho Lake. This lake is full of trophy size rainbow trout with some exceeding the 10 pound range. Our hunters stay in comfortable log cabins and enjoy our hearty home cooked meals. Real hot showers and a sauna are just a few of the amenities to mention in our fully equipped base camp.
Testimonial: I cannot speak enough about my hunt at Opatcho Lake Outfitters. Ken, his wife Crystal, made me feel at home the moment I arrived. Clean,comfortable cabins, the cook was fantastic with her cooking, always had coffee ready. The Guides were great, for all the hunters in camp they gave 100% effort. Ken knows his terrority and the action is fast and up close. I only go on Guided hunts and Opatcho Lake Outfitters is one outfit worth going with for your Canadian Moose.
Sincerely, Brad Goldworm
Testimonial: I spent 10 days for moose hunting in Kens hunting camp Opatcho Lake. The camp has cozy log houses,all facilities are very clean and the hot shower before dinner is just great. The guides know all about the area and hunting is very successful because of the passion of the guides and the big boss Ken. Even things seem to be impossible,he arranges something.
The meal is all home made delicious and the dinner is always fun with all the hunting stories. I sure will come back!

BC Moose Hunting, Black Bear and Grizzly Hunts
"Stalking black bears is extremely exciting and hunting with Ken and Crystal Watson of Opatcho Lake Outfitters was a blast. We saw lots of bears and had plenty of stalk opportunities. I took my best black bear at 41 yards. Ken clearly understands bear behavior, knows his territory and will put you in front of game. And Crystal is a great cook. You won't regret booking a hunt with Opatcho Lake Outfitters."

"When a hunt goes wrong at the very start, you can either quit or press on. When it's a spot-and-stalk hunt for a special animal, the choice is easy."
