Silver Lake is located in the Silver Lake Provincial Park 12 km.
(7.5 mi.) south of the town of Hope
at the east end of the Fraser Valley. From Hope, travel west on
Hwy. #1 to the Silver Creek exit. Travel south on the Silver-Skagit
Road which edges Silverhope Creek. The road is paved until the last
6 km. (3.7 mi.) but the gravel section is easily accessible by car.
This road will take the adventurous all the way to the U.S. border
passing through the spectacular scenery of the Skagit Valley, with
distant snow capped mountains and rushing or meandering streams
The provincial park provides campsites along the lake, with a gravel
boat launch. Although primitive, the campsites are positioned to
take the most advantage of the scenic beauty surrounding the lake
and most offer good lake access. Accommodations, facilities and
services are available in Hope.

Report: This area is world renowned for fantastic fly
fishing and canoeing. The creek, river and lakes are perfect for
sightseeing from a canoe. Silverhope Creek, which passes through
the lake, can offer the avid fisher some excellent fishing pools.
This small (1 km./.6 mi.) long lake is usually very calm in the
evenings. Although the majority of fish caught are small, the Dolly
Varden can reach up to 5 lbs. The creek exit lagoon is a "hot spot"
for the avid flyfisher; for those who prefer to cast from shore
there is a fast drop on the west side of the lake. Special regulations
are in effect.
