Description:

Poor avi conditions? Looking for a weekend adventure?

LOOK NO FURTHER!!

Yes this is a little late but never the less the trip is on…

Many of us VOCers divide out time between different outdoor pursuits. One of my favorite happens to be flyfishing, so I am opening this trip up to anyone who wishes to learn how to fish for Steelhead, BC's greatest sport fish. I will be heading to Spences Bridge very early Saturday morning to hopefully be fishing for first light. There are numerous places to camp around the area if anyone is interested in fishing for 2 days, otherwise you can arrange to meet me at Spences Bridge and we will start hunting from there! If no one signs up with a vehicle for this trip I will be forced to greyhound from Merritt to Vancouver on Sunday :(


The Good news: The Thompson river has opened for its famed Steelhead run this year for the first time in 4 years.

The Bad news: The chances of catching one is 0.

 

The In-between news: There is a healthy population of resident rainbow trout to peruse if Steelheading gets boring (very likely for first timers). 

 

Fishermen are secretive so please call if interested in more information. 778-928-4131 (not actually I’m just too lazy to write a more detailed description)
