Anglers are literally floating on water after a new
dock was put in at Yellow Lake last week.
After several years the Keremeos-Cawston
Sportsmen Association was able to secure funding
to put in the new dock.
“It’s something we’ve wanted to do for a longtime,”
Kathaleen Gibbs, of the sportsmen association
“A lot of people don’t have a boat or they don’t
want to put one in just to go fishing for a few hours.
This way with the dock Grandpa can take little
Johnny or Sally fishing easily. Just get out of the
car with your pole and walk down to the dock and
The Keremeos Cawston Sportsmen Association
received a grants totalling $12,554 from the Ministry
of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources and the
Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen Areas
B, G, and D for the project.
The club also pitched in money collected in the
Tim Clarke memorial fund.
The RDOS grant money totalled $5,685.
“We’re very thankful to receive the grants and
that they saw value in the dock at Yellow Lake,”
About 10 members of the Keremeos Cawston
Sportsmen Association help put out the dock which
is 40 feet wide and goes out about 16 feet.
Staff from New Wave Docks from 100 Mile also
helped put out the dock.
The dock was built in memory of avid fisherman
and outdoorsman Tim Clarke who passed away
about 15 years ago
