Rainbow Trout Fishing and other
activities at, and near, Watch Lake Lodge

Watch Lake Lodge is the perfect spot to sit and relax in the peace and quite but if it's activities you're looking for then you'll find them! They are nearly endless - both on site and in the local area.

Horseback Riding is the most popular activity at Watch Lake Lodge but fishing is a close second. If you have a camera photo opportunities are abundant and bird watching is also a favorite past time.

 

Trail Rides
By far the most popular activity, horseback riding, is fun for the whole family at Watch Lake Lodge. If you want to join in on any of the rides book early as they fill up quickly! There two rides daily, and all the rides are well supervised. Riders can be as young as 7 years old. There are three or four experienced wranglers on each ride. Everyone from beginners to advanced are welcome. See the Horseback Riding - Trail Rides page for all the information.

Fishing
Fishing is good for Kamloops trout, up to 3 to 5lbs. Trolling is most popular, but lots of fishermen fly fish as well. Because of the speed limit of 8km/hr the lake is nice and quiet and float tubing works well. There is also fishing in many nearby lakes. Row boats are available either for fishing or just exploring the lake. If you have a small outboard motor you are welcome to bring it along. The boats can handle up to 9.9 horse power motors. Boat rental - $3:00 per hour and $15.00 per day

Other on site Activities
Swimming is good and the swimming area is near the cabins. No water skiing or jet skiis are allowed as the lake is too small for high speed watercraft - there is an 8km/hr speed restriction. There is a horseshoe pit and the hiking is very pleasant. If you have a canoe or sailboat bring it along!

Activities in the Area
There's lots to do in the area - in fact the places to see and things to do are endless. A few examples are:

  • Visit some of the near by historic sites
  • Take in the 360 degree 250 km view from the Forestry Lookout
  • Hike in to see Crater Lake
  • Look through the local craft shops
  • Sightseeing - there are many local scenic drives
  • Bird watching and photography
  • Wildlife viewing and photography

Don't Forget
Remember to bring along your camera and a pair of binoculars - if you don't you'll be sorry!
