Taking your boat for a spin on Mara or Shuswap Lake is one ofSicamous’ main attractions, but finding a place to tie up your boat in the Sicamous Narrows is becoming a problem. Locals says low water levels and silt are drastically cutting down on the number of usable moorage spaces and some are now pushing for the channel to be dredged.

The conditions in the channel are impacting many marinas, including Three Buoys Marina which is in the business of mooring boats.
