June 30, 2019 : Shuswap Lake Update - July Long Weekend

This Sunday has been the busiest day of 2019 on the Shuswap so far. Lots of boats have been out on the lake, public beaches are packed, and traffic on Highways is substantially higher and slower than usual. Sunny and warm weather has returned to the Shuswap just in time for the long weekend and, with exception of a shower or two, is expected to remain equally as nice for the week. Surface water temperatures on Shuswap Lake are around 20C and most inviting for a quick jump into the water. If you are looking for some water toys, check out Reds Rentals at the end of the Sicamous Channel. Also, if you are looking for a good beachfront restaurant, Finz Restaurant in Blind Bay would be the ideal choice with free dock parking for your boat.

Lake levels are quite lower than usual around this time, exposing lots of extended beaches throughout the Shuswap Lake. When beaching your boat overnight or for an extended amount of time, be aware that lake levels are currently dropping at a rate of between 1 and 2 inches per day. Furthermore, the low lake levels are also hiding sandbanks very close below the water. Be careful and slow down when approaching beaches. Do not attempt a shortcut to the open lake after leaving the Sicamous Channel; you may find yourself stuck and your passengers gone for an involuntary bath in the lake.
