A story by David Boulding: If you want big fish in UPPER CAMPBELL LAKE, GO TO GEOFF CAMPBELL

Geoff is one of the 11 grandchildren of Wallace Baike and has fond memories of learning to fish with Wallace.

Wallace was one of the loggers involved in the effort to clear cut the valley for the hydro project he knows the bottom of the lake intimately because he was there for years before it was flooded. he spent years telling Geoff about the underwater landscape, where the hills, where the ponds , where the rivers and the valley features were located.

In the old days…1965 to 1985…..Wallace used long skinny shinny gangtrolls with worms and would take a boatload of grandchildren out for an evening. he always caught fish and if the kids were not quiet and suitably appreciative of the experience Wallace would swat the nearest kid and say…..”that is for all of you”

Geoff must have paid attention because not only has he become a big boat person, he now catches the big fish….some say the biggest trout in the lake. Read more
