Anymore suggestions or votes on the previously recommended venues?
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Well, after voting has been open for a little over 3 months... it appears as if Whonnock Lake is the clear winner as the "people's choice" as the venue for this competition! Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote! :)

As Istvan pointed out... registration is open for this competition. Please consider registering for this competition (if you haven't yet), as it's a fun venue, has easy access, and has some scrappy wild and hatchery trout.

I will be there - not sure if one of my kids will be with me, but that is the plan.  Right now, TBD.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

I have never fished Whonnock and was just googling some info about it. It sounds like no powered boats are allowed, not even electric. Probably most of you guys already knew it, just a heads up for the newbies like myself:)

Just a bump to remind people about this competition, which is the second to last competition for the season.

I hope to see all of you and a few new faces at this event!

Cheers,
Todd
