Close to Vancouver, the multitude of quiet lakes and 80 km of sparsely populated coastline equals great sport fishing on the lower Sunshine Coast. Mooch for salmon, angle for cutthroat trout and various species of cod. Prawning and crabbing are also good year round in the protected waters of Georgia Strait.
Aptly named Trout Lake, a pretty 14 hectare lake on the north side of Hwy 101 in Halfmoon Bay, is stocked with Cutthroat Trout. It’s a popular spot for local anglers with best results Apr-Jul and Sep-Oct.
