The lake also offers amazing fishing.

Located along Highway 97 between Vernon and Kamloops, Falkland is a quaint town with about 600 full-time residents. Pillar Lake Resort is just a 15 minutes’ drive from the town of Falkland. After an amazing day exploring nearby hiking, mountain biking and quad trails or taking on some lake activities, you can throw together a delicious meal in your RV or cozy cabin or take a five-minute walk into town for a dinner out. Our lakeside retreat is approximately one hour’s drive from dining, shopping and entertainment in Kamloops, 35 minutes from Armstrong and Vernon, and just half an hour from Chase.
Pillar Lake provides a good Rainbow Trout fishery up to 2+ pounds. Fly fishermen have the most success at the north end of the lake in the large shoal areas, where the spring and summer months see a good emergence of Chironomids, Caddisfly, Damsels and Dragons. Trolling small lures, flatfish and spinning gear also meet with good success. You will need a fishing license to fish Pillar Lake - you can get one online at www.fishing.gov.bc.ca. Otherwise, Pillar Lake Resorts has everything you need for a quiet day on the lake, including tackle and bait.
