Happy Canada Day!
Last we reported the Elk was at 134 cubis M/sec and we are now dow to 82 cubic M/sec. This makes the Elk very fishable and driftable and water clarity is decent and getting even better by the day.
One thing all anglers coming to the Elk should be aware of is the mandatory boat inspection stations.
Clean Drain Dry encourages you to 'clean drain dry' all boats and equipment to help reduce the spread of invasive plants and organisms to BC waters. Outreach staff are providing information to boaters at boat launches, and collaborating with local lakeside stewardship groups across BC to reduce the spread of invasive plants and organisms such as Eurasian watermilfoil and zebra mussels, among others.
Boats and other watercraft are also a frequent method of invasive species entering key habitat within BC such as the province’s lakes, streams and wetlands. With jurisdictions across North America struggling with the impacts of this aquatic invasion, the need for boaters and other outdoor recreation enthusiasts to pay attention and take action is growing.

ISCBC asks all boaters and outdoor recreation enthusiasts to commit to following the Clean Drain Dry principles of as soon their boat or watercraft is removed from the water:
CLEAN off all plant parts, animals, and mud from boat and equipment (e.g. boots, waders, fishing gear). Use a power wash station if available.
DRAIN onto land all items that can hold water (e.g. buckets, wells, bilge, and ballast).
DRY all items completely before launching into another body of water.
