Hi all, jfisherman here, well tomorrow (July 5th) I'm heading to vancouver for a couple of weeks for a week of camping/fishing. Does anyone know of any good steelheadish streams/lakes in Kamloops/pasca lake area?

Geez, where to start? That area used to be my backyard. Tunkwa/Leighton have bomber chironomids going right now, Wyse Lake northwest of Paska is a little tough to get into which is why there are quality 'bows there. Norman Lake is about 20km. north of Paska and being at 4600' should have traveller sedges starting up real soon. If you want to do a day trip Big OK(Island) should be doing good as well being another high elevation lake. You could also daytrip down to the Thompson River for some dry fly action for decent rainbows. You'll be about 1/2 hour from Jacko Lake which is usually good for rainbows to 8-10 lbs. on deeply trolled leeches. Conservatively there are at least 80 lakes within an hour of Paska. Stop in at Kamloops Fly Shop on the way and talk to Ron, he'll know what's hot and what's not!

Hi all, jfisherman here, back from paska. Kept 5, 2 of whom were nice fat approx 8", other 3 were approx 6" but rather slim. All kinds of nibbles, a bunch of releases cause too small, a bunch of long-distance releases. Alas, however, I forgot pictures.
