Report: A great family lake offering a large abundence
of trout that average in the 1 lb. range with the odd one reaching
4 lbs. Walloper 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.

Located on the Nicola Plateau, part of the inerior plateau physiographic
region, the lake lies in gentle rolling hills forested in lodgepole
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. Many snags and wind
falls are found along the shoreline area and there is large area
of aquatic plant growth in the shallow areas and bays.
