|Lake fishing within the Southwestern region of
British Columbia is definitely overshadowed by the excellent river and
saltwater salmon fishing in the area. Although salmon and steelhead receive
most of the attention, there are numerous quality lakes for anglers to sample
for trout and char. Whether you are looking for that quaint mountain lake that
offers small, but plenty of feisty rainbow or large cutthroat that will chase
down a well-presented streamer pattern, this area offers it
Southwestern BC: Fishing Mapbook covers a vast area, stretching from the Lower Mainland north past Pemberton and east to Manning Park, then north to include Merritt, Kamloops and Wells Gray Provincial Park. The waterbodies in this area are comprised of two fishing regions: Region 2 and Region 3.
Region 2 offers some of the most scenic lakes in the province. The wet climate, spectacular coastal mountains and the deep, dark lakes makes the scenery as much of the fishing experience as the fishing. To compliment the surroundings, there is an abundance of small trout allowing fishermen of all ages to enjoy a successful outing. Whether you are an ardent fly fisherman or prefer the ol fashion bait and bobber, there is surprisingly good lake fishing very close to the urban centres.
Region 3, on the other hand, is not known for its river fishing. While the Thompson is considered the best steelheading river in the world, it is the exception that proves the rule. But the lake fishing here is unbelievable. The Bonaparte Plateau is a world class trout fishing destination, and the lakes here offer some of the finest fishing around. Due to the abundance of nutrient rich alkaline waters in this region, fish are faster growing and achieve larger sizes then the coastal lakes.
No other source combines such detailed information on how and where to fish the Southwestern region of British Columbia. The Southwestern BC: Fishing Mapbook is an excellent guide if you are new to the area or looking for a new place to fish.
Contains information on over 200 lakes including:
