Up on Powell Lake the Dogwood trees are in bloom. Like everything this spring, they started a bit early.
As the fisherman's saying goes, "When the dogwoods are in bloom, fishing is good."
The Pacific Dogwood was adopted in 1956 as British Columbia's provincial flower.
I think it's a great choice. The large white flowers really stand out when you get up close.

The tin boat (follow this link for a ride on YouTube) is our favourite for fishing near our float cabin. Wayne uses a smaller lake downrigger and fishes at about 25'. I let out a long line and work the surface waters. Once we got into First Narrows, I got hung up on a snag.
the season that began on April 1. We continued to troll. I caught another snag. When I reeled in my line, there was a 2" (yes, two inch) bullhead. I'm sure you understand why I didn't take a picture. I'll try again before the blossoms fall. -- Margy
