About Lakes District Air & Fishing
Our flightseeing tours are a wonderful way to see the wilderness and the beautiful Lakes District. Our floatplane flights are a great experience especially for those who have never been in a small plane. We own and operate one of Canada's most famous airplanes...the Dehavilland Beaver, come see for yourself and take a tour through historic areas and see BC's largest provincial park, Tweedsmuir!

We planned the trip of a lifetime and Lakes District Air provided it perfectly. Tesla Lake fishing lodge was the focal point of our trip to Canada. Everything else fell in to place around it. The Cabin was very remote, just what we had been searching for. Not a soul to be seen for our entire time at the cabin as Tesla lake is virtually impossible to get to other than by floatplane. The cabin was very comfortable and we spent many hours just staring out at the lake or exploring the lake in the boats provided. Most people come to Tesla Lake to fish, we came to enjoy the remote location and solitude and we got everything we could possibly have hoped for. If you want to experience real escapism Lake District Air's Tesla Lake cabin is just perfect.

Picturesque wilderness fishing that leaves you breathless. The aerial views from the Beaver float plane are remarkable, especially going to-and-from the lodge to the rivers. We spent two nights at the lodge, and fished for Coho two out of the three days. The Coho fishing was top shelf. The lodge is also beautiful and has all the amenities required for a trip of this nature. Nick is a great guide and host and will make sure your experience is awesome. If you are looking for remoteness, great fishing and beautiful scenery, this is your place.

Just got back from Tesla (our second time there} and booked another week for next year. This is a magic place. Everything you could possibly need is provided at their beautiful lodge. The scenery is fantastic and the fishing is great. Our host Nick has worked very hard to ensure that his clients are provided with an experience they will not forget. The remoteness of the lakes and the beauty of the landscape is second to none. Thanks Nick. Dan and Marylou Forest

Owners Nick and Mary are amazing hosts. Our trip to Tesla was breathtaking. Nick flew us in the beaver. Beautiful scenery and enjoyed the float plane ride. The lodge is well appointed and had everything for a memorable stay. We had one windy day so hiked up to Walla lake which was very scenic.

We flew in to Tesla Lake Fishing Lodge with Lakes District Air (Burns Lake) on a Beaver float plane for 4 days and nights. Nick and Mary Hawes were terrific hosts. The cabin is clean, beautiful, and remote. We brought bedding, food and fishing gear. They supplied boats and down riggers. Despite the remoteness, we had all the amenities: hot running water, fridge, stove and shower. Be prepared to chop wood and use an outhouse; part of a wilderness adventure! There are 3 lakes to hike or boat too, but the fishing at Tesla was the best. Our biggest catch was a 6 lb. rainbow but a beautiful 10 pounder smoked the reel, jumped 3 times and sped away. I'd reccommend this trip to any fishing or wilderness enthusiast.
