The annual Nimpo Lake Canoe Race paddled its way from Nimpo Lake to Anahim Lake during the weekend.

The annual Nimpo Lake Canoe Race paddled its way from Nimpo Lake to Anahim Lake during the weekend.

The festivities began with a pancake breakfast served at the Nimpo Lake public boat launch prepared by Nimpo/Anahim Lake community volunteers.

Five canoes paddled the Dean River this year for big bucks.

One canoe was piloted by a pair of young women, one canoe was paddled by Richard and Leah Simon.

Three teams of men pushed off from shore in the other three canoes.

Starting at around 11 a.m. all five canoes left the Nimpo public boat launch and turned their bows west towards Anahim Lake.

Conditions were excellent as the Dean River was experiencing high water at this time of year.
