Outstanding!
That lake is plenty big enough to make good use of that boat.

She looks great setting at the dock. Looed up your lake and looks like you have plenty of fish to catch. A 20lb Rainbow Trout oh my. they only get 2-4lbs in the streams in my Smoky Mountains. :D Have fun fishing you have the right boat for it. :D

Thanks for that. I agree, she is a pretty boat - great lines.

Okanagan is a big lake and we've got several other big lakes nearby as well (Kamloops, Shuswap, Arrow, Kootenay, Quesnel). These are all fjord syle lakes nestled between mountains. They are long and narrow and usually very deep. Lots of exploring and as mentioned some trophy rainbow trout around as well. I also hope to use this boat to do some exploring of our coastal waters between Vancouver Island and the mainland.. Many large inlets wind their way into the mountains. One in particular is on my wish list, Princess Louisa Inlet (Chatterbox Falls) at the head of Jervis Inlet.
