Welcome to the 1st edition of the Fishing Mapbook for Thompson Okanagan, BC!
The Thompson Okanagan region offers some of the best fishing in BC, with a variety of fishable waterbodies ranging from huge valley-bottom lakes such as Okanagan and Shuswap Lake, to rivers of all shapes and sizes. The fish here grow faster and achieve larger sizes than many areas in BC, and many an angler is drawn to the area by the opportunity to nab a hard fighting Pennask or Blackwater rainbow trout. Opportunities abound, from urban fishing holes to remote hike-in lakes found hours from the nearest highway.
As we continue to work to provide the best and most recent information, users of this Fishing Mapbook will find that fishing descriptions, access and facilities have been reviewed and fully updated, including campsite, lodge and resort details. We have also included new and improved bathymetric lake depth charts, as well as the most up to date information available for fish species and stocking information for all lakes and rivers. We have even included the newest fishing docks to our maps.
The printed version of this fishing mapbook comes in the convenient 21.5 x 28 cm (8.5 x 11 inch) mapbook format with a heavy-duty spiral-bound cover. Containing Region 3 (Thompson/Nicola) and Region 8 (Okanagan), the 224 page book includes over 210 lakes and rivers and shows you where to fish and how to best fish any given area. We have loaded it with fishing tips, breakdowns of various fish species, fly hatches and specific information on each lake and stream. Inside, you will find maps and depth charts for popular lakes, plus bar or hot spot maps of the main rivers in this region. Nowhere else will you find this combination of detailed regional information plus angling expertise all in one place.
