Lake Lyndon Map - 1:50,000 scale Trout Fishing Access Map

Named by Edward Jollie, Lake Lyndon, nestles near the top of Porters Pass. It really is a Canterbury high country lake in the truest sense sitting in an almost tree-less barren tussock landscape. In winter snow frequently falls to the water's edge and at least part of the lake ices over. State Highway 73 passes the northern eastern tip of Lake Lyndon between Springfield and Castle Hill Village. It rests some 90 minutes drive from Christchurch - the last part of the journey being up the steep Porters Pass section of SH73.

The Maori name for Lake Lyndon is Hapuawaikawa or simply Waikawa.

Access is excellent with the Lyndon to Coleridge road skirting the south eastern shoreline. There are plenty of places for boat launching.
