Anglers catch tickets, fines on North Okanagan lakes

It’s been a busy weekend on lakes around the Okanagan with the B.C. Conservation Officer Service laying eight charges, giving 25 warnings, and ordering three vessels ordered off the water.

These actions came out of an angler patrol of 34 boats on Kalamalka and Wood lakes.

 

Charges included angling while suspended, angling without a license,  possessing live fish, angling with more than one hook and no life jackets

The cost of an annual angling license in B.C. is $36 and the fine for failing to produce a valid angling license is $115.
