Southwestern BC Fishing: Lake & River Charts

Backroad Mapbooks loves a good BC fishing lake – so much so that we’ve compiled nearly 200 fishing lakes and rivers in southwestern British Columbia into one comprehensive fishing guide, aka the Southwestern BC Fishing Mapbook. Spanning Region 2 (Lower Mainland) and Region 3 (Thompson Nicola), this southwestern BC fishing map book details the rich lake and river system that sprawls throughout southwestern BC. With some of the most scenic landscapes in British Columbia, the backcountry around Vancouver, Kamloops and beyond, boasts deep, dark lakes filled with fishing treasures. Anglers will find not only trout, bass, and other sportfish, but a world-class salmon fishery, with Chinook, chum, coho, Kokanee, pink and sockeye salmon throughout these BC waters.

The southwestern BC fishing map book details the fish species of the regions around well-known cities like Vancouver and Kamloops, taking you deep into the backcountry with the expertise of a seasoned, local angler. With detailed bathymetric (depth) lake charts for each fishing lake in the region, plus river maps, directions and access points to each location, your southwestern BC fishing map book gets you to those fishing hot spots with confidence. From Pemberton to Manning Park, to Wells Gray Provincial Park and beyond, Backroad Mapbooks puts southwestern BC fishing on the map.
