Gordon Honey's "The Ghillie" Fly Fishing Guide Service
. . . join BC Adventure member Gordon Honey for fly fishing action in the famous trout waters of Kamloops, B.C.

Fishing Report: One of the practice lakes for the 1993 world fly fishing championship. Lac le Jeune is a very popular family lake offering a good rainbow fishery, up to 3 lbs. Trolling and spinning gear are the most popular methods used here ,however, the numerous shoals around the lake harbour much insect life and fly fishers do very well especially in late June and early July when there is a good sedge hatch going on.
Be sure to visit for angling information!

Viewscape: Situated on the Nicola Plateau, part of the Interior Plateau physiographic region, Lac le Jeune is surrounded by hilly terrain forested mainly in lodgepole pine, douglas fir and engelmann spruce. Resorts are located at the southwest end of the lake. Many summer residences are found on the north shore along with a huge provincial campsite.

Shoreline: Forested on the north and south sides to the lake. The west end is very shallow with lots of reeds and drains into a small lake with open meadows on it's north side. The east end is also very shallow with lots of reeds. Make ready your fly imitations because dragons and damsels love to emerge on reeds so trout will key on these areas.

Nearby Lakes

Ross-Moore and Fred - Ross-Moore and Fred are small lakes located about 5 km. (3 miles) to the east of Lac la Jeune and can be accessed by taking a rough dirt 4 x 4 road on the north side of Lac la Jeune . There is a small BCFS campsite with a cartop boat launch on Ross-Moore. Fishing can be excellent on both lakes with 4 to 5lb. rainbows taken regularly.

Note: Always check your current BC Fishing regulations before you start fishing a new lake.
