Kamloops Lake is a beautiful lake that is just waiting to be
discovered. The North Thompson and South Thompson Rivers flow
into Kamloops Lake which is 1.6 km (1 mi.) wide and 29 km (18
mi.) long. In spots the lake is as deep as 152 meters (500 ft.).
Because Kamloops Lake is river fed, the water level goes up
and down with the snow melt in the mountains. Early June is
high water and by early fall there is a lot of rocky shore.
During the hot summer months the water temperature over the
shelf warms up enough for swimming. Go boating and explore the
shoreline. Discover interesting driftwood, coloured rock formations,
abandoned shacks, and mine workings and keekwillie holes. From
the lake you can easily view the "Balanced Rock", the stone
masonry railway bridges and railway tunnels. You might even
spot some Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep roaming the northern
Lake - Chosen as one of the lakes that hosted
the 1993 world fly fishing championship , Tunkwa is simply
a great fishing lake. Tunkwa is situated on the Thompson Plateau
amongst rolling hills of thick pine stands and open meadows.
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you
start fishing a new lake.
