Edith Lake is a popular fishing lake so it is better for paddlers to launch at non-prime fishing times to stay out of the way. We went out with our stand-up paddleboard and paddled away from fishing boats, sticking close to the shoreline.
Edith Lake sits in a natural basin between Edith Hill and the Grandview Hill and is filled with meltwaters from the surrounding hills. There is a small outlet stream (Humphrey Creek) that flows south into Peterson Creek at high water. A small BC Rec site is now established on the western shores, adjacent to the Edith Lake Road.
