Cast a line into crystalline waters at Monkman Lake, or fly-fish for Arctic grayling and northern pike from the edge of the Murray River near Tumbler Ridge.
Monkman Lake contains bull trout and is open for fishing between May and October (bull trout quotas are in effect). There are also fantastic fishing opportunities in summer and winter at lakes close to Tumbler Ridge.
Thrilling opportunities are in store for avid anglers at Gwillim Lake, which is 56km/34.8mi south of Tumbler Ridge on Highway 29. Gaze into the depths while fishing one of the deepest lakes in the region at 48m/158ft deep. Lake trout, Arctic grayling, and whitefish are found in Gwillim Lake.
