VFFN – Fishing the Similkameen

The latest report on the Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists field trips!

Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists enjoyed a field trip on July 6 that included lunching on freshly caught rainbow trout from the Similkameen River.

Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists enjoyed yet another field trip on July 6 that included lunching on freshly caught rainbow trout, this time from the Similkameen River. Peter Antonick led a group of 12 to an idyllic spot near the old community of Allenby, where half the group fished while the others explored further along the river and returned in time to appreciate the endeavours of the anglers. Lunch on the beach included not only pan fried trout cooked in onion & garlic, but smoked salmon and home-made cherry wine, specialties of Peter’s! The day was wonderfully warm, and the water refreshingly cool for those brave enough to immerse themselves. We observed spotted sandpipers in the area, one with chicks, and were entertained by kayakers practicing their skills in the rushing current. It was definitely one of our less arduous outings!
