Those wanting to fish the opening May 1st at many of the lakes in the Merritt area be warned that Ice Off is probably 2 weeks behind, unless the weather really warms up. Lakes at the Merritt elevation like Nicola, Stump, etc are okay but at higher elevations, like Peter Hope, fishing probably won't start until mid May, but I'll keep you posted.

Still ice on Peterhope Lake although lake edges ae clearing. Used a spinning rod with a chironimid from shore and caught one May 2nd. I'm going to try again today. Several fish jumping. Probably another week before ice is off.

We were at Tyner this weekend (off road to Chataway). Ice is off, lake has turned, fishing was slow. We were the only ones on the lake. Half the forest around the lake has been clear cut since last season and from the sounds, the other half will be clear cut this year. Certainly not the ideallic spot it was before.

Does anyone know how the lakes are doing further up the road?
