Hi all....

I am new to the board (province as well) and am looking for places to go flyfish near Kelowna.

Hubby and I fished alot in Alberta and we can't wait to pull out the rods!

I look forward to your suggestions.

Welcome to BC Ragen. There are a ton of lakes in the region. Try going to your local tackle shops and asking them for advice. They will be more than happy to not only point you toi some productive water, but sell you flies that will be useful at the time of year your asking about. Purchase the Backroads mapbook III (Kamloops/Okanagan) and do some exploring (both on paper and on road). Another good resource is BC lake Fishing by Karl Bruhn. I'd recommend the lakes up on the connector (Hwy 97c) as this time of year the higher elevation lakes will be more productive.
driving down the coq. there are a few creeks that hold fish.
If you are near to Kelowna, you should drop by the Fly shop, called Troutwaters just down from the Best Western Tower Inn. The guys there are knowledgeable and friendly and will point you in the direction of some local lakes that are producing.
Welcome Ragen. There are so many lakes within an hour of Kelowna, it"s sick! About a 45 min drive into the hills( good roads) east of Winfield, you'll find Dee Lake, Island Lake, Fly 1 and Fly 2, Ruth, Eileen,etc. etc. etc. Great lakes. Some busier than others, and some easier to get to than others. Going in the other direction, towards the Coquihala or west of Peachland, You'll find loads of lakes up there. Best thing to do is go to Chapters Books and pick up a "Backroads Mapbook". Good luck. Enjoy!
