Catchable trout released into Kemp Lake.

Kemp Lake stocked with trout

Rainbow trout fry make their way into fishing lake

Under a sunny afternoon sky on October 9, Lucas Philp from the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC (FFSBC) released 1,500 trout into the waters of Kemp Lake.

The one-year-old Fraser Valley rainbow trout, averaging a weight of 210 grams, were raised in Duncan.

These beautiful fish are Fall Catchables, meaning they can be fished in this freshwater, no-motorized-boats-allowed lake.

FFSCB released 1,000 Spring Catchables earlier this year in April, and another 1,500 Fall Catchables last fall.

FFSBC is a private non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement and conservation of BC’s freshwater fish resources for the benefit of the public.
