Sport fishing has long been part of Burns Lake's heritage and is a tradition that continues to today. Every year, both locals and visitors take advantage of the Lakes District's 3000 miles of fishing opportunity making it one of the greatest fishing destinations in British Columbia.
Burns Lake has a long and fascinating history.
As the name implies, the Lakes District and area is known for its amazing lakes and boating opportunities. And whether you are looking for the calm and quiet and relaxing experience of canoeing, kayaking, or sailing, or the adrenalin rush of water skiing, jet boating or power boating, you will find a lake in the Lakes District perfect for your brand of summer fun.
To take in the striking scenery of the Lakes District, put on a pair of comfortable hiking boots and head out on one of more than two dozen trails maintained by the Lakes Outdoor Recreation Society.
