Author Topic: Kawkawa Lake

Went to the lake today with my family to go fishing for kokanee. I don' know what everyone thinks of this lake, but it a hugh disappointment because of all of the waterskiers. I follow the rules, I have my BC boating license, and I'm wondering if all of those you punks (driving daddy's $80,000 boat) actually have their licenses when they are not following the rules of at least staying 30 metres away from any vessel. Something needs to be done, that lake can't be a fishing and waterskiing lake. Replies welcome.

I hate those idiots! I was fishing Pitt Lake last year with my girlfriend and her 11 year old daughter in a 12 aluminum and this wakeboard boat came speeding by 10 feet from us and we almost all fell into the water. If I could keep up with that boat and get to him at the boat launch he wouldnt have been able to walk after what I would have done to him. What assholes! They are everywhere. They think they're so cool with daddys boat and give no respect to the rules and safety of others. I too have my boaters card, I highly dought they have theirs.

I know exactly what you're talking about. I live in Hope and fish the lake quite often. On may long weekend I had boats flying past my pontoon boats within 25 feet. I too was wondering if the drivers had appropriate licensing. I wasn't aware of that 30 meter rule or else I definitely would have reported those jerks. Apparently the best way to deal with them is to alwways have a bottom bouncing set-up and practice hitting the side of their boat.

I think that lake will spooked out from the water skiers i had the same disapointing trip a couple weeks back

i'd bet the local people would sign the petition. the idiots are from vancouver and area, not hope.

I'm from Cloverdale, I've been fishing since I was 6 years old. I know you don't like people from Vancouver fishing there, but if you are a true fisherman, that could be a great lake to take your family there without all of the speed boats. I have a 15 foot boat with a 50 horse mercury, but I don't use it in small lakes I use my electric motor. I think there should be more lakes out there where we can just go fishing without speed boats racing around us. I'll sign a petition.

With the closures of backroads and the BS surrounding parks, we are going to find that our choices of water body will diminish. As more people try to get into the great outdoors we will be crowding the popular spots. As a result more people will try to share space. Some are better at this than others.

The best piece of advice I can think of is exercise patience where possible,and keep yer secret spot a secret!!!!
