Almost 40 species of waterfowl can be found on South Cariboo lakes and wetlands. Many migratory species live here during the summer months, or pass through in the spring and fall during their annual passage. These include not only various ducks and geese, but also Trumpeter and Tundra Swans and the odd White Pelican. Ospreys peer into the waves to capture their meal alongside fishermen while red-tailed hawks search the fields for their dinner. Mule deer, foxes and coyotes are common sights. The lake and stream edges are riparian zones and important to nesting birds such as loons and geese, as well as beavers, otters, muskrats and the endangered BC’s largest shorebird, the long-billed curlew and the rarely seen badger. Keep your binoculars handy!

The Fishing Highway (Highway 24) connects Whistler to Jasper and Banff National Parks. Tracing sections of the old Hudson’s Bay Company Fur Brigade Trail, it accesses 100+ lakes where fly-fishing, spin casting, trolling and ice fishing yield big fish, with month-long fishing derbies in June and September. While Horse, Sheridan, Bridge, Deka and Lac Des Roches Lakes may be commonly heard names, the abundance of water and wildlife is limitless. Interlakes Saturday evenings Music at the Lakes summer series is free for all. With restaurants, cafes, shops, resorts, farmers’ markets and guest ranches dotting the length of Highway 24 there is lots to enjoy.
