Walloper Lake

Walloper Lake

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.

How to get there

Walloper Lake is located along the Coquihalia Highway in between Merritt and Kamloops and is very easy to find. Just follow the Coq. north take the Logan Lake  exit, exit 336, make a right then turn right a couple kms down the road at the Walloper Lake sign.

Fished Walloper Lake with my cousin in law and his son today. It was a great experience for Michael since he is only 7. He had a great time casting out spoons all day in search for some hungry trout. We fished from 8:00am until 3:00pm. All 3 of us were using spoons in different colours and really did have success on all of them but there were 2 hot ones that caught 6 each. All the fish we caught were between the 20-28cm range so they were fairly small. We caught 14 total, I caught 6, Micheal caught 2 and his dad caught 6, although we probably lost at least triple that when they jumped out of the water and spit out the hook. For little fish those guys sure do put up a fight!

Croc Spoon
A hot spoon on this lake had non stop action with it its a Gibbs Croc 1/16th spoon in brass with orange strip on it.

Have you been back lately? Last year I did really well with Adams dry flies, but not until later in the afternoon.

Thats a spiny dog fish pal (also known as mud shark). Salmon sharks are completely different...almost look like a mini great white.

Great website!!!
