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 ready to catch. 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 bite your bait!
The nearest ice fishing access point to our Fairmont Hot Springs vacation rentals is Windermere Public Beach, a 10 minute drive away. From the beach, you'll be able to spot local ice shacks lining the finest fishing spots! If you're lucky, you can watch bald eagles seeking a tasty lunch from the fisherman on the lake.
Lake Lillian is a small and scenic lake located less than 15 minutes from our Panorama properties. Try your hand at reeling in a bull trout, brook trout, or cutthroat trout. While out on Lake Lillian, enjoy the beautiful nordic skiing and skating trails.
Lake Lillian is closest to our Panorama properties and makes for the perfect day trip or afternoon adventure.
Whiteswan Lake, 45 minutes from Fairmont Hot Springs on Hwy #93/95, 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.
