Canim Lake Provincial Park Beach is only a 5minute drive from Kayanara. Beautiful pebble beach with picnic tables and clear water. Great for swimming, kayaking, boating and relaxing.
Canim Lake is also serious angling country in the summer, offering some of the finest freshwater fly-fishing in BC. Canim Lake is the angling centre 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. If you are looking to go out on the lake, Reynolds Resort is right on Canim Lake and rents fishing boats. Only 5 minutes from Kayanara.
