Catching Any?

Mark Hill of Washington State and his Daughter most certainly are. Mark wrote us about his recent trip to the land of Mounties, Maple leaves and hockey...

When it comes to what a dad wants for Father’s Day, a dad couldn’t ask for a more perfect day than to be on the water of a beautiful lake and watch his daughter catch the biggest fish of her life!

This past weekend, I had one of those weekends that you don’t forget for a long time, when my daughter, Christina, and I spent Father’s Day weekend fishing on Christina Lake, British Columbia. The weather was perfect and the fish were biting.

Christina Lake is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. It is located in southeast British Columbia, just north of the Washington State border. It is a 14 mile long lake that is the home to Rainbow Trout, Kokanee and Large & Small mouth Bass. I spent this past Father’s Day weekend fishing it with my 14 year old daughter, Christina (who just happens to be named after the lake). Christina caught the her largest Rainbow ever (18 inches and 2 pounds). The smile on her face after we landed the fish was one of the best Father’s Day gifts I could have asked for!
