Hi all. We are looking to go away for a few days starting Sunday. We would like to go and fly fish at a lake some place. We are hoping to find ones with cabins due to the night time temps. Is this still doable this time of the year? We live in Langley and don't really want to drive more than 3 or 4 hours. We have all the gear and tubes etc. that we need, but also wouldn't mind renting a little boat there too.

Any suggestions or is it just too late in the year???


Please help


Cheers

Tunkwa/Leighton...do a search and find out if the cabins at the resort are still open. That's where I would go.

Cheers! -Nathan in NW

I have been fishing the lakes as the snow level has been dropping. Sad to say most lakes are tough driving to now, however there are still a few in the Okanagan that are producing well and can be accessed without snowmobile / chains. Try Echo lake near Lumby, or the Dee lakes chain near Vernon / Kelowna. Both have fishing lodges and no crowds at this time of year. Good luck!
let us know if you find others still reachable and ice free.

I try to aspend at least a long week end or more there every year. Great folks running the place and always a good time. Hope the big ones are moving.

What a great place to visit. The fishing was slow and we had a horribe windstorm come through for the two days were there. I recomend this place to anyone who wants to just get away. Great little cabins 102 years old :shock: But have a great wood stove in them.

Thanks prof for the suggestion

Nice lake

About 10 years ago my dad and I spent 2 days there(wife is from the loops) and we had an amazing time there.There was a wolf pack come right between the cabins howling in the night,just a great trip.There is a secret lake a few clicks above and was full of fish,but beware of sudden snowstorms as we got caught in a severe one in late April.

The fishing was slow
Glad to hear you had a good experience! As for the fishing, not a surprise. Even the lower elevation lakes in the Interior can slow down this time of year. The colder temperatures trigger a response in the fish that Winter is coming and even through there is no ice on the lake, their metabolism slows down. Sometimes if you time it right you can catch them in a feeding frenzy prior to Winter but that varies a great deal from lake to lake.
