Author Topic: any good lakes within a couple hours of vancouver?

a few buddies and i from vancouver are looking to go for an overnighter somewhere next weekend. we're looking for a lake within a couple hours of vancouver with reasonable fishing and a spot to camp. can anyone help?

ok, there's plenty of these topics already posted. plus there's a wonderful icon at the very top of the page that says "trip planner" try using that. it'll help you out emencely.

now, once again.

Bunzten Lake - Coquitlam
Alice Lake - Just Past Squamish
Sayaers Lake - Mission
Chehalis Lake - Near Hemlock Valley
Jones Lake - Near Hope

There's quite a few, but the best fishing in BC is up in the Thompson Nicola area if you ask me. Get a fishing guide for that area. 4x4 road mapbook is great to have as well.



Hey oddmud, which offroad mapbook would you recomend?
I was thinking of getting one of these:

Any suggestions?

I may be wrong but believe Chehalis Lake has a bridge out making getting there next to impossible. there apparently is a back road but heard it is definately 4x4. a bc backroads map book will show the route.

I agree with Edzzed, "Back Road Mapbooks" by Musio ventures is the ONLY way to go. They cover the whole province with 8 or 10 books. They can be found at a lot of gas stations etc. Not cheap......expect to pay 25 bucks or so. Well worth the price. When heading out, I don't leave home without them. I would recommend them to any and all outdoorsmen/women.
