I was fishing with 2 granddaughters . After about 1/2 hour youngest girl went back to the dock. The oldest one wanted to row while I fished. Out about 5 minutes and felt like weeds,so pulled on the line and it pulled back. After about 15 minutes and a few runs out it was close to the boat and Dori was leaning over and shouted grandpa its a big one. Turned out to be 3 lbs and fit perfectly on the BBQ.
Reports are that Gardom is really productive these days. Some good flies are mayfly nymphs and chironomids. Stop by the shop if you need to stock up and let us know how the trip goes! Trout Waters Fly and Tackle, #101-2340 Hwy 97N Kelowna, or www.troutwaters.ca
In 2008/2009 Gardom Lake had a controlled kill because of poor angling practices of bring shinners in to the lake. Since then it has been restocked with the below indicated fish. The lake is now clean of coarse fish, lets keep it that way.

The only access to Gardom Lake for ice fishing is through Gardom Lake Park on Park Rd. This is on the SOUTH side of the lake opposite of The Royal Canadian Legion Summer Camp and Gardom Lake Bible Camp. There is NO PUBLIC ACCESS off Glenmary Road. Please do not go down private driveways or ignore the No Trespassing signs and destroy private property (fences) to gain access.
pretty sad when a old man can't walk threw the legion that he belongs to go ice fishing! more people around means less vandalism too bad the residents don't embrace the ice fisherman these residents have become to whiney the legion should also make a trail threw there. White lake residents have way more respect for everyone gardom residents should look at changing their conflicting ways. Remember you don:t own anything in this world you just use it till you die and the next person takes over.
