Canim Lake
This 37 km long lake is one of the most popular lakes found in the Cariboo Chilcotin region. It is set on an area of picturesque contours, rolling green hills, expansive meadows and numerous water sport activities. The lake reaches a comfortable temperature of 21ºC. During the summer months it is advisable to take in some of the sights found in the area, such as volcanic cones near Spanish Creek.

Canim Lake is serious angling country in summer, offering some of the finest freshwater fly-fishing in British Columbia. Canim Lake is the angling centre of a region famed for the size of its char, or laker, as the fish are referred to locally. Anglers look for Kokanee, rainbow, lake trout up to 25 pounds, or ling cod. Ice fishing season on Canim Lake runs from mid-December to mid-March offering rainbow trout, lake trout, Kokanee and burbot (freshwater ling cod).

History : Canim Lake is the traditional territory of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) First Nations Band. The Native people of Canim Lake and their ancestors are a part of what is known as the Lake Division of the Shuswap Tribe within the Interior Salish Nations in BC. Canim Lake region is made up of six parcels of designated reserve land totalling 2,029 hectares that were originally set aside for the band by the Reilly Commission in 1887. Archaeological evidence of ancient habitation in the Soda Creek region of the Cariboo during the summer of 1995 was carbon dated at approximately 4,300 years old. The name Canim appropriately means canoe in the Chinook language.
