Why Lake Diefenbaker?

Immense Size

Lake Diefenbaker is often called Canada’s Inland Ocean because of its massive size: 225 km long, 800 km plus of shoreline and a maximum depth of 66 m or 220 feet. This massive lake provides virtually an unlimited space for boating, fishing and many other year-round activities.

Clear Water

Lake Diefenbaker constantly receives fresh melt and rainwater from the slopes of the Eastern Rocky Mountains. This together with its incredible average depth of 71 feet provides for pristine, clean, clear, algae-free water. It provides a great environment for all kinds of water activities.

Fishing Paradise

The high quality of water provides a great environment for 27 species of fish; some of world-record calibre. Both the current world record rainbow trout and burbot were caught in the lake.
