There's a nice little alpine lake up in the Monashees that produces nice brookies & the odd rainbow.

    Northwest side of the island is usually consistent but not for larger bass.
    Suggest that so you have something in your hip pocket.

    What industry are you involved with?

    PM sent with info. Generally not a problem to catch the limit. Paddling canoe dragging a wet fly.

    You caught a nice pan fry trout there and the brookies are great eating Char.

    Fishing Canada guy's ( PETE and ANGIE I think) fished Osoyoos for smallmouth bass on a show a few years ago, the fish that they were catching they said were the fish (small mouth bass) of a life time. The biggest small mouth bass they ever caught.

    Nice to see those brookies. I have unfortunately become so keyed in on big rainbows that it's hard for me to fish smaller lakes or creeks anymore. I usually only fish lakes with triploids now hoping for a giant. Lots of choices around the loops here for big bows. I cracked the 10lb mark finally this year. The biggest before that was a 9 1/4 I caught in 2010. Just goes to show how hard it is to get a BIG bow around here.

    You two have something in common.
    Vaseaux Lake is slowly filling with silt which is quite odd. Ministry thinks it comes from Shuttleworth Creek.
    Long ago, used to bowfish the carp in the northeast corner of Vaseaux when they were spawning. Talk about exhilarating when you connected. Get towed around until it finally exhausted itself which was never to my recollection less than 30 minutes.
    What do you do with carp? My dad used to bury them under the base of the garden peach tree, fertilizer.
    I heard tell that if you wanted to eat them, you wrap them in cowpie, then wrap in tinfoil and set them on a campfire for about to 1 hour. When you think it's done, remove from the fire, un-wrap the foil, peel off the cowpie and throw the fish away.
    Say, where did you get the boat?

    He’s looking for bass, so try Vaseaux or something like that...
