Hello buckwheat, I hope you can find something with this linkage:

camping at Pavillion Lake, Kamloops bc - Google Search

The pop of Kamloops is around 85k now so you
might not recognize it from 25 years ago !

Cheers,

Yer welcome buckwheat...I hope the fishing is good when you're there too. Maybe you'll tangle
with some of those big Kamloops RB's...take lots
of pics !

Cheers,

with the pop growth i just hope there is still some fish around. when i was a kid i dont think we ever caught anything under 20". lots of fish 25 to 30. we will see this summer. hopefully i remember the camera.

Re: kamloops
 
I hope you remember the camera too and that you get some 30" Kamloops...that would be great...

Oh, found out something interesting recently...the Coquahalla (sp) hiway is no longer a toll road and if you haven't run it, it goes from Kamloops to Hope....I did it when it first opened and was a toll road. It cuts the better part of a days drive off the trip back to the States from Kamloops.

A little off topic but I hadn't heard "Kamloops" for a lot of years. Years ago at June Lake in Ca I caught a trout that was all silver and grey (no colors). It looked just like a RB. Haven't caught one before or since. A guy at the lake called it a Kamloop. Does that sound about the right look?

Hello Jimmie, I know, those magical 'Canada' words that bring back great memories ! Well,
having fished around June Lakes Loop, Rush Creek, etc. I'd take a wild guess and say the
silver and grey trout may have been a Kokanee
Salmon. Again, that's a wild guess.

moose, i did not know they had toll ways up in that area i will have to keep an eye out for that road. 30" fish would be nice having never fly fished up in that area i hope i can figure out what they are eating. my 8 year old refuses to use spinning gear so i will probably be spending more time helping him. usually kids get board after about 10 minutes no matter what kind of fishing they are doing. he can stand out there for hours slinging them flies around. snaps off about 50 bucks worth everytime we go. money well spent.
