A hot, sunny Father’s Day attracted a big crowd to the Revelstoke Rod ‘n’ Gun Club’s annual Family Fishing Day at Williamson’s Lake on June 16. Fishers of all ages competed for the freshly stocked trout by casting from shore, the dock and a few small boats. Club spokesperson Gail Ferguson said the event drew the biggest crowd in recent memory, due to the weather and the fact the lake was recently designated as a stocking lake. About 500 trout are introduced to the lake annually, in addition to about 150 larger Gerrard rainbow trout.
