lake that lies in the Rocky Mountain Trench plays a very important
role in the water drainage system of the region. The source of the
Columbia River is Columbia Lake. For approximately 100 km (60 mi.)
both the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers run parallel and when they reach
Canal Flats at the south end of Columbia Lake the two rivers are less
than 2 km (1.2 mi.) apart. The Columbia River from its source flows
north while the Kootenay River continues flowing south. Eroded rock
formations called the Dutch Creek hoodoos can be seen above the south
end of Columbia Lake and there are pulloffs spots near the Dutch Creek
bridge. Columbia Lake is a great place for fishing and swimming. It
is well used as a put-in site for persons planning to canoe or kayak
the Columbia River. Be sure to visit Fishbc.com
for angling information!
Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start
fishing a new lake.
