Lakes of British Columbia: Suzanne Lake

Jul 22, 2013 by     2 Comments     Posted under: Destinations

Lakes of British Columbia is a new series for Nomads on the Road; the basic plan is to introduce readers to new, interesting and beautiful lakes in British Columbia and particularly the East Kootenay region. The next featured lake is Suzanne Lake…

Suzanne Lake 

Suzanne Lake and Dock

Suzanne Lake is a quiet and peaceful lake located just off Highway 3, near Jaffrey.

Suzanne Lake is a quiet fishing lake located just outside of Jaffrey in the East Kootenay region. Rainbow trout are large and abundant in Suzanne Lake, making it perfect for fishermen.

With a small dock and boat loading area, located at the ten pitch campsite, available to the public, space is at a premium, yet out on the water there is plenty of room for swimmers and anglers alike.

Suzanne Lake basks in the sun

Suzanne Lake is warm thanks to the strong British Columbia sun.

Suzanne Lake can be accessed from Highway 3, from there it is a short drive to the campsite and loading bays. Beware, there are private docks and houses lining the lake. These are however well signed.

The Road to Suzanne Lake

Of course half the fun of going to a new lake is finding the bloody thing. Luckily Suzanne Lake is relatively easy to find, yet the surrounding is a maze of logging service roads. These make for some great views and unexpected sights. Such as the time we found the ‘road’ underwater.

  • Hi there Mike. Been wanting to fish Suzanne for bass for years and am finally gonna do it. I’ve been told conflicting reports on the best time to cast flies there, May or June. What’s your recommendation on that? Thanks for now.
