Comments Off on Girls Fishing Trip in Harrison Hot Springs

Harrison Hot Springs is one of my favourite ‘close to home’ destinations. We go there for camping, date nights, beach play, birthday celebrations and most recently on a girls fishing trip. 

We made the night of it and decided to head out the day before to Harrison to enjoy dinner and a relaxing night in at Harrison Beach Hotel.

See my last visit to Harrison Beach Hotel Here.

On our way up, we stopped in at Sandpiper Golf Course in Harrison Mills. Also, home of the popular wedding destination and private lodging cabins, Rowena’s Inn. Right on that same property and the original home at Rowena’s Inn you can find the Clubhouse restaurant.

Honestly, I’ve never had a bad experience here. I have been a handle of times, most recent time before this was on my 30th birthday. Whenever I share that I’m visiting I always have a few people that reccomend the Salmon Wellington and I am sure that Paige will now tell everyone to get the Caesar because she said, “This is literally the best Caesar I have ever had, and I’ve had a lot of Caesar’s!”

The four of us (Paige, Adrienne & Bethany) spent most of the night just chatting, having a couple drinks, enjoying our meals and debating over going for the dessert or not. We decided not, just because we wanted to make it to Harrison Beach Hotel before the sun went down.

Checking in at the hotel was a breeze, as it always is. I’ve stayed here a number of times and the first thing on my mind is always how comfortable the beds are and the amazing lakeside view. Nothing beats going to sleep and waking up to the stillness of the lake and beauty of the mountains.

Our night ended in their outdoor hottub. Sharing some laughs and just relaxing, without kids. Ahh!

In the morning we grabbed a quick bite at the little cafe connected to Harrison Hot Springs Resort as one of my favourite spots to eat in Harrison, Muddy Waters Cafe, wasn’t open early enough before we had to leave for fishing.

We hopped on the boat at 9 AM with our sturgeon fishing licenses in hand, got the full run down on what the day was going to look like and discovered where all the safety gear is located.

I’ve been sturgeon fishing once before so I had a pretty good idea of what was in store. I’d say it’s a super relaxing time until something bites and then it’s go time!

We cruised out of Harrison Lake down to the Harrison River and then ended spending most of our day fishing in the Fraser River. Our guide from BC Sport Fishing Group was incredibly knowledgeable sharing about the family run business, experiences he has had, the importance of catching, tagging and monitoring the sturgeon’s and so much more.

We spent all afternoon with the rods in the water and towards the end of our adventure we got our first bite. I’m sure it’s a lot different being on a boat with a bunch of girls when a fish hooks than for boys because let’s just say we all let out a rather large “ AHHH!HH!!H!!!” haha!! One of our drinks went flying and Paige jumped up to grab the line the quickest.

She reeled in the sturgeon like a pro and we all stood for a photo, couldn’t not.

Our BC Fishing Group guide, Mer (if you are going make sure to ask for him!), showed us all the features of the sturgeon. This particular one had been caught before so he recorded some numbers to record and then Adrienne set him free again in the river.

What a cool experience. 

All of us left the day feeling so refreshed and also so much more knowledgeable about what goes on in the fishing industry and learning new ways to contribute to help.

Just by going out on a day like we did, the cost of your fishing license goes back into helping with the study and conservation of sturgeon’s. For more information and ideas for things to do in Harrison check out both BC Sport Fishing Group and Tourism Harrison.

Thanks to Tourism Harrison for gifting this experience, it was such a pleasure to share our experience and try something new.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
