Fishing at sunset (Picture BC photo)
Burns Lake is part of the Lakes District, which means ample opportunity for fantastic freshwater fishing.
Both the Burns Lake and Lakes Districts logos include an image of a fish, demonstrating the popularity of the sport here. Moreover, the local newspaper's front page routinely features photos of smiling anglers sporting their massive catch of the day or week.
Lakes and Fish Species
Choose from about 20 lakes in the town's immediate vicinity and another 300 lakes in the district. The lakes are of varying sizes but almost all of them are full of prize catches. Fish species in the Lakes District include rainbow trout, char, lingcod, Dolly Varden, kokanee and salmon. Various lakes are popular for certain fish, but because many of the lakes are so close together, one can angle for all types of fish in a matter of days and even on the same day.
