I just returned from a fishing trip at Roche Lake Resort
, 30 minutes south of Kamloops
in the interior of BC.
Roche Lake is weel known in the world of fly fishing as being a top-rated destination for anglers. I have been there two years in a row and found the entire place to be a great BC experience.
We camped in well maintained sites and had access to free firewood, hot showers, a pool and a hot tub for around $30/night. There are also modern Chalets that you can rent for quite a bit more. There is also a forestry site on the lake as well for around $9/night with no amenities.
The fishing was made much more enjoyable because we were given some expert advice from the staff on what lures to use. There is also a man-made spawning stream right beside the boat launch that you can stand beside and watch the fish do their thing.
Boat rentals are available. The restaurant serves up a good dinner for around $15-20.
