I am staying at a spot in Vernon to the left of beachcomber bay. Is there good fishing in that area in area in MAY???? I am going in two weeks and need all he info you might have. Thank you.

assuming you have a boat, it is the best time! i'd have to check but I think kokanee are open. for trout you have to go a bit deeper usually, 40 to 60 feet would be a good place to fish. i'd suggest using apex's, spoons like coyotes or bucktails. if trying bucktails , start near the surface and gradually get it down deeper. i lived in Vernon for over 20 years and caught lots of trout on the big lake but haven't fished there in recent years. there are however a few members who might have more to add as they fish Okanagan.
an alternative is to try one of the many smaller lakes. some have resorts with rentals. may can be dynamite . dee lake and oyama lk are a couple i can think of (i think oyama has rentals....anyone???) have a great stay!

I'm looking forward to it. We own in cotton bay but I've never got the rod out up there.

our best success is always a lyman plug.
we'll usually run with a two ounce weight, or put the riggers down to 24', 32', and 52'.
our best colour's are the #18 and the solid pink.
