Walloper Lake Stats
Located on the Nicola Plateau, Walloper Lake lies in gentle rolling hills forested in lodgepole pine, Douglas fir, and patches of aspen with engelmann spruce and willows in wetter sites. Patches of wild rose and red orsier dogwood are found as undergrowth. Grasses are the main ground cover with sedges in the moister areas.
The drop off is gradual around the shore except off the points on the southeast side of the lake. Most of the shoreline is till and has a well developed fringe of sedges, bulrushes and short willows. Boulders and cobbles are common along the steep drop-offs and the northwest shoreline. Two rocky points and a stretch of shoreline on the northeast are free from this fringe due to a steep drop-off. The east and west ends are flat and marshy. Walloper Lake is 36 ha. in size or 90 acres. the maximum depth is 25.6 feet. The elevation is 4,284 feet.
There is a BC Provincial Day-Use park located on the north side of the lake. Facilities include a boat launch and recently constructed pier.
Walloper Lake is a great family lake offering a large abundance of trout that average in the 1 - 2 lb. range with the odd one reaching 4 lbs. Walloper Lake contains good populations of freshwater shrimp (scuds ) and leeches making it an excellent choice for the fly fishers. The lake has an aerator to avoid winterkill of the fish stocks. Caution should be exercised in the winter because of the danger of open water created by the aerator.
