Boating and angling opportunities abound in and around Mackenzie. Anglers have endless opportunities including fishing for trophy-sized bull trout.
Anglers must purchase and carry an appropriate license to fish in British Columbia, as well as follow the current Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis from the BC Ministry of Environment – Fish & Wildlife website.
While boating is a summer activity, best from late May to late September, fishing can be carried out year-round with ice fishing in the winter months. Morfee Lake and Williston Lake are the nearest lakes to Mackenzie.
Fishing on Morfee Lake
Morfee Lake offers a unique opportunity for motorized and non-motorized boaters. The lake narrows in the center creating a separation between the north and south. The southern part of the lake has been zoned to allow only non-motorized boating, such as canoeing, and fishing, and the northern part of the lake is for motorized use.
