Any day fishing is better than any day working and in the Shuswap, it’s a year-round and world-class experience. Enjoy excellent boat access, or the peaceful pleasure of casting from the beach on a quiet morning, just steps from your cottage. Paddle out from your houseboat and let a sinker down deep into the middle of the lake. Whatever your preference, bring your rod and let the Shuswap reel you in!
