    Hi All, I posted this request in the Saltwater section be we are not opposed to freshwater fishing.

    I have to plan a stag for May/June of this year and the groom has never even attempted to catch a fish. I really want him to be able to catch something. It will be around 6 guys or so. Can you recommend something, along the fraser or the vedder? Maybe where we can do some camping as well?

    Thanks all.

    Possibly St Mary's lake on Salt Spring, give them a call?? Bass and trout, camping for a couple nights, organize some games with prizes. I do think freshwater has its benefits, cheaper, easier to organize weather wise, safer. Good luck whatever you do, remember, its all about memories.

    Many years ago I attended a "2 night stag" at Lizard Lake here on the Island. Best Man booked all sites in the walk in section=noise and drinking easier on other campers. Ooh what a time we had, even caught fish.

    Also, you might want to double check with the venue/accomodation, or you know, not tell them you are booking for a stag. Some places have a "no stag" policy.

    Guides probably can't stand when it turns into a booze cruise, heard of a guide packing up because nobody wanted to fight a fish and
    everyone on board were pickled lol..

    Good points, best to ask groom what he wants and expectations. No good on ocean if groom gets deathly sea sick, also be up front with venue's they may have ideas, extras or specials.

    Check out Bent Rods, he guides and has accommodations, some good cutthroat fishing that time of the year, no packing
    any camping gear, full kitchen, bbq ,fire pit and on a farm sounds like a pretty cool set up.

    I second Mark is an amazing guide and catches big fish. He is experienced with groups of different sizes and I have fished with him many times and so have my friends, family and co-workers.
