Area Data : Green Lake is one of the largest lakes in the South Cariboo at 14 km long, averaging 1.5 km across and about 120 metres deep in the middle. The beautiful greenish hue is produced by a high algae content and water chemical composition. The lake warms up nicely for swimming in the summers with good water clarity for canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Fishing can net you a 1 - 8 lb rainbow trout with the occasional catch of a kokanee and if you have trouble making a catch, the very popular fishing spot of Watch Lake is very close by.
History : Green Lake was on the Hudson’s Bay Fur Brigade Trail between Fort Kamloops and Fort Alexandria. It was also a location of powwows and potlatches for the First Nations people.

North Green Lake Road eastward connects with Watch Lake-Green Lake Road and ends at Highway 24, the renowned “Fishing Highway.” Highway 24 was utilized as a gateway from the Pacific Coast to Jasper and Banff National Parks. It accesses 100+ lakes where fly-fishing, spin casting, trolling and ice fishing yield big fish, with month long fishing derbies in June and September at every lake.
