NEW: BC Fishing Highway 24 and The Land of Hidden Waters Recreation Map

The team at Backroad Mapbooks is excited to announce the launch of our new BC Fishing Highway 24 and the Land of Hidden Waters Waterproof Adventure Map. This dual-sided map features an overview map of the Land of Hidden Waters area on one side, including Wells Gray Provincial Park, Lac la Hache, Canim Lake, Clearwater, Vavenby, 100 Mile House, Lone Butte, Interlakes, Bridge Lake, Little Fort, 70 Mile House, Barrière, Clinton, Cache Creek, Ashcroft, Logan Lake, Savona, Kamloops, Adams Lake Provincial Marine Park and Bonaparte Provincial Park. The other side features a close-up view of BC’s Famed Highway 24 corridor including Horse Lake, Fawn Lake, Sheridan Lake, Bridge Lake, Lac des Roches and several other lakes and surrounding areas to make adventure planning for this fantastic region easy. 

In conjunction with the recent Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC initiative to make fishing more accessible for anglers of all ages and abilities, this map includes clearly marked fishing docks, boat launches, and stocking information. Whether you are looking to launch a boat for a day of fishing and explore one of the many lakes in this region or just throw a few casts off one of the many accessible docks, we have you covered with this all-in-one adventure map!

The Anglers Advantage

No other map contains as much information on this fantastic fishing region as this one. Together with the industry-leading cartographic detail and topographic relief shading that you have come to expect from our products, we have clearly marked fishing docks, available fish species, boat launches, and access roads to make trip planning easy for anglers. We also include a chart of all stocked lakes in the area, a quick facts chart on some of the main lakes, fishing regulations, fishing tips and tricks, boating restrictions, and more. Simply pack this map along with your rod and tackle, and you are ready to fish!

The Adventures are Endless

The BC Fishing Highway 24 and Land of Hidden Waters areas offer much more than great angling. Endless recreation opportunities are present here, with lakeside lodging and camping providing a great way to escape the crowds in the heart of British Columbia. Surrounded by glacial fed lakes, this is truly a destination to make lasting memories no matter the Adventure you want to pursue.

Marked on this dual-sided, waterproof map are parks, camping and RV sites, multi-use trails, paddling routes, fish species, hunting management boundaries, primary and secondary roads and highways, logging roads, four-wheel drive access roads and more! This map also includes quick facts about the BC Fishing Highway 24 corridor and the Land of Hidden Waters, points of interest including scenic waterfalls and historic sites, and a list of resorts, guides, and accommodations.
