    hey, my name is Jeremy. i just moved to Penticton from southern Ontario. im looking for some new friends who enjoy fishing and the outdoors. im no pro. would like to learn as much as possible with first hand experience. i have an urge to get out and fish some lakes in the area but do not have a drivers license because i have some gnarly eyesight lol. if anyone in the area has a boat or extra room in a vehicle when heading to a lake let me know and im more than willing to pay gas and bait.

    Hi Jeremy, I live in Osoyoos, dont really fish here until they open Sockeye. Not the most challenging fishery but we will take it here in the desert! If and when Sockeye opens this August, message me if you can get down here for a few hrs, Id be happy to take you out, no need to pay for anything I'd be out anyways.

    No need for a charter just go fish from shore. Vaseax has good action, the channel is closed now for spawners but when it opens go early morning or last light, drive up to Ripley and Madden, Sawmill (fly fishing C+R single barbless only), chute lake has a load of small fish, Agur lake is stocked with catchables yearly.
