Gone Fishing? 


No matter what you prefer, fly casting from shore, cruising on the lake or ice fishing, the South Cariboo is here for you. Canim Lake is serious angling country in summer, offering some of the finest freshwater fly-fishing in BC. Canim Lake is the angling center of a region famed for the size of its char, or laker, as the fish is referred to locally. Anglers look for kokanee, rainbow, lake trout up to 25 pounds, or lingcod.                  We have a couple of suggestions on our Attractions page.
