Fishing at Silver Lake


[Fish jumping - click to enlarge]

Silver Lake Provincial Park is situated along the Fraser River Valley in British Columbia. The lakefront is largely undeveloped. The park size is 77 hectares, and offers fishing along with other activities. Silver Lake provides excellent trout fishing opportunities. Catch and release only with a single barbless hook. Licences are available for purchase in Hope/Silver Hope Creek approximately 8 km away. Anyone fishing or angling in B.C. must have an appropriate licence.

The BCParks website has provided a warning to visitors to this park about wood ticks. Wood ticks are most prevalent between March and June. These parasites live in tall grass and low shrubs, and seek out warm-blooded hosts. As potential carriers of disease, they should be avoided. See more information on wood ticks and removal on the link provided below.

Cloudia, summer will be very soon in the mountains once all the ice is out.

Clair, perfect video for Travis. I wonder how his fish calling is working this week.

Ah, the fish jumping is awesome... I just want to get out there in my bellyboat and flyrod... a beautiful area.

I just loved that picture of the jumping fish - I wonder how many exposures that cost!

Thank you for the nice comment!

Funny that. Nature creates and destroys beauty in the same measure. Wise she is, our Nature. Many thanks for that fantastic image.

Greetings from London.

I love your posts about your beautiful county, Barbara. The fish made me think of Travis, too.

Michele, the photo is touching that a fish would jump: perhaps to catch a bug.

RuneE, it could have been as simple as clicking at the right moment.

Cuban, that bit about the wood ticks was meant for Teresa from California. She has commented about my fiction writing being dark and horror filled when I show photos of beauty in nature. Nature has always had its hidden horror element.

Debra, then I shall have to find every wonderful place there is to see.
