Hello everyone, so i thought if some of you were bored you might want to read about my bass fishing day at silvermere lake as some of you bash my other posts pretty much saying im "all talk and no play" well lets get started at the beginning...i left poco at around 2:00 pm and took a 30 min drive to silvermere lake which is right outside of mission. Silvermere lake is an invasive species studu meaning that they introduce invasive fish to see what impact they have on a natural population of fish. They brought largemouth bass which completely dominate all other fish species in the lake. So anyways it is one of the best cass lakes in B.C. But it is a private lake so you cannot use boats, but can fish from the shore. People who choose to take a boat there are met by angry residents who sometimes call the police. (Sidenote you are allowed to use a boat if u have a property on the lake). Today we parked right next to the highway which is the only place people who dont own a property there have access to. There are lots of prickly bushes so where you can walk is very limited and it is almost like a cliff butbthe fishing is worth it. We used baits that resemble fish and caught 10 bass and 2 black crappie. Something interesting is that a pack of 10 baits that resemble fish (forgot the name sorry) which costed $2 outfished a lure that costed $6 which i found was pretty interesting. The lake is only good in summer months when the water heats up and if you have a spare day i definitely recommend u try your luck there as its really fun. The fish were biting well from 2-4 but the fishing was almost dead from 5-6 then it really picked up after that. We left around 8 an it was an awesome day overall. I hope u enjoyed my story and i will write next time i fish. Please feel free to ask questions in the comments. Im so sorry i couldnt get pictures i left my phone in the car. (Sidenote#2 i kept both black crappies and a few bass and plan on cooking them) now ill tell u some funnies and fails: i landed a bass all the way up this small cliff sort of and it came off the hook and flopped all they way off the cliff but into water so fortunately it was fine. My brother fished with about 3 feet of line and a dragonfly on the end of it and actually managed to catch 2 sunfish (i think the same one got caught twice) thank you for reading please feel free to leave feedback and tell me if you enjoyed it

Thanks for the detailed report. I have never tried Silvermere as there are so many horror stories about property owners chasing around fisherman.

One thing I would suggest for future reports is break it up into paragraphs for easier reading.
Yes i will break it up into paragraphs next time, now about the property owners...they are either really nice or just ignore you UNTIL you put your boat into the water that is when they chase you and harass you.
