Our fishing program includes recreational opportunities with members and conducting seminars for both club and non-members. We maintain an ice fishing hut on Lake Windermere during the winter months for member use. We host a Family Fishing Day in February at the hut. Recently we held a fly casting course and some ice fishing instruction to young anglers. We have been an active participant with the Whiteswan Lake Management Plan, Kootenay Fishery Regional Advisory Committee and were requested to make comment on the proposed Westslope Cutthroat Management Plan – Species at Risk.
The Lake Windermere District Rod & Gun Club hosted a 2 evening beginners Fly Tying Course instructed by Doug (Butch) McKay. Eleven members took part in the well instructed class and came away with basic techniques to be able to create their own flies. The club puts on workshops throughout the year for its members such as this one.
