HiHium Lake Fishing Resort
Boats and Motors
Our signature hand crafted wooden boats and oars are available for rent. Every boat and oar is meticulously constructed and painted white and red. The boats feature an extra wide with a flat base, ideal for safe casting. Every dock will accommodate up to four boats.
Every boat is cleaned and power washed before and after each user. Boats include:
- Emergency kit
- 24″ inch wooden fish box
- Burlap to protect fresh fish
- Pair of oars – offered custom fit to arm length
- 2 sturdy boat width wooden benches
- Seat cushions
- Life jackets
To operate a powered motored boat, you must have a boating license. If you do not have a boating license, someone in the boat with you must have one. Acquire yours at the following BOATsmart link.
Bringing Your Own Boat?
Planning to bring your own boat? Call us ahead of time to verify if your boat or motor can be accommodated. Please note that the BC Government mandates a boat restriction of 14 feet max with a 10 horse power limit for the lake! There are additional launching and moorage fees you can find in the rates section.
Motors are available for rent separate from the boat. We offer motors with a horse power ranging through 5 and 8. In compliance with lakeside erosion regulations and respect for fellow anglers in maintaining a peaceful atmosphere, we do not suggest using very strong/loud motors. Clients are welcome to bring their own motors or request a certain one up at the resort. Please consult us ahead of time!
Gas is complementary with motor rental. Ask the caretaker for a fuel replacement when you are running low or if you need assistance getting the motor started.
Spare Nets and Water Pump
In the event that you forget to bring your net or drop it into the water, we have a couple modest nets that will do the job. They may not be the Lamborghini of nets, but having something beats nothing!
Up at the lake, weather is very unpredictable given our location and high altitude. After a rainstorm, you will want to pump water out of your boat. We have a few attached to trees in front of cabins around the camp when needed.
