Like many Metro Vancouver lakes, Buntzen Lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC in the Spring (March to June) and Fall (September to November). Stocked rainbow trout are typically between 12 and 14 inches and 250 grams. Buntzen Lake is also inhabited by a native population of cutthroat trout and other coarse fish such as northern pikeminnow; small kokanee are also present. Trout fishing is best during spring and fall, while anglers often find coarse fish plentiful in the summer with a possibility of hooking some trout in deeper water.
