Exploring hidden stillwaters in British Columbia!
From Fishing BC:
“An aerial map of British Columbia’s interior region displays the sheer quantity of lakes available to the angler willing to explore. From Kamloops north to the community of 100 Mile House and beyond, stillwater enthusiasts are found dispersed throughout this region from ice-off all the way until the late fall.
In this short exploration, Jordan Oelrich of Interior Fly Fishing Co. is joined by British Columbia born angler Paula Shearer in pursuit of large fall rainbows in shallow water. Prior to the ice arriving on the lake, these fish will slide onto marl flats to feed on residual food sources such as freshwater shrimp and small leeches.
‘This is their last big feed before the ice goes on the lakes, it’s fun to catch them in shallow water like this’.
Paula and Jordan both grew up fly fishing in this region of B.C., and after an overnight trip up the Fishing Highway 24 in the Cariboo region, they return to Kamloops to successfully finish off this fall stillwater adventure and display the ample opportunity that British Columbia’s interior has to offer.
‘I was able to go back to my childhood and revisit the reasons why I learned to fish’”
