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.

  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
