Windermere Lake is one of the most popular lakes in all of southeastern British Columbia, and for good reason. The recreational opportunities are endless and the fishing is fabulous. There are bass, rainbow trout, rocky mountain whitefish, and char. The lake is quite shallow so if you are in an ice-shack, it makes a great day of fishing when you can see your catch come up to your bait!
Whiteswan Lake, 45 minutes south on Hwy #93, is another great fishing spot which is near the Lussier Hot Springs – a winning combination for a great day! It is known for record rainbow trout and stunning, peaceful scenery.

When you are out on the Lake, look for the Lake Windermere Ambassadors who continue to look for creative ways to engage winter users of Lake Windermere, using the Ambassadors ice hut (main feature image), and through developing similar partnerships with winter recreation groups. Future activities might include winter season lake sampling, ice fishing demos, and interpretive skating activities on the lake.
