Been years since I fished it. Heck it is almost as quick to make it to the Kamloops area. I loved it every time I've fished it with great memories each time. I'll never forget rounding a corner on that road to basically come side by side with a cougar (four legged, with fur... oh who the heck am I kidding, someone is going to make a joke about it) on the drivers side of my truck with my window rolled down. At the place in the road the beast couldn't drop down the grade and it could run to the other side because my truck was in the way so it just ran along side me as I drove for about 50 or more yards. Absolutely stunning. That was mid June and the lake was bitter cold that year, but I found fish consistently out in the middle with mids deep. Iveoflone, I hope that other lake you fished where you lost count of large fish isn't the one you mentioned to me. If so, it busted on me, found fish but they were all pretty much the smallest fish I've found there. Rod and I would find schools and as long as we could stay on them trolling, we could usually pick them up in 20 plus feet of water. We moved onto another lake that panned out much better for us, but no 20" fish. Great post!
