Walloper Lake is located along the Coquihalia Highway in between Merritt and Kamloops. It is a nice fishing lake loaded with small Rainbow trout that love to be caught and can get into the one pound range. There is also a nice fishing warf on the lake.
This and the fact that the fish are so willing to take to lures, bait and flies make this a perfect lake to bring the kids and motivate them in the ways of fishing. The fish can be easily caught from the warf so you don't need a boat, just a rod, worm, and
a lawn chair. But if you are lucky enough to bring boat here there is a boat launch and trolling can be very effective or anchoring around the drop offs and fly-fishing with Tom Thumb or Doc Spratley can produce great results. There is a day use
area within this Provincal Park with some picnic tables and parking lot but no camping.
