With all the amazing places to explore in the Okanagan, I’m sure there’s “Plenty -O- Fish” stories too! This past weekend, the family outing took us to, or should I say, hooked us to Coldstream Park where the Coldstream Creek flows through. We weren’t there to fish, but to see if there were any fish, as this time of year the annual fish spawn is on.
We were able to see several Kokanee Salmon. Click below!
You’ll find the park off of Kalamalka Road. There’s a short drive, bike or walk path to the area. No doubt because of the fish spawning there’s a bear warning sign there.
The Park displays interesting fish facts and watch for the warnings as well.
Watch for the other warning signs as well such as this one!
A recent fish study revealed some interesting findings. Bringing new meaning to the term ‘fishing pole,’ scientists now say that the sex drives of fish are on the rise due to massive quantities of unnatural chemicals in the water. They say that drugs like the antidepressant Prozac travel in and out of the human body, and make their way into the water supply. In a test, researchers added the active ingredient in Prozac to the water in a fish tank and found that the fish showed “more frequent copulatory behavior” and spent more time pursuing females.
