New dock nets anglers

Anglers are literally floating on water after a new

dock was put in at Yellow Lake last week.

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

said.

“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

you’re fishing.”

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,”

she said.

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
