The 2022 Go Fish BC Photo Contest closed at the end of October. We received just over 360 submissions across three categories.
This year, we asked for photos of memorable moments on the lake; fishing buddies; and anglers’ first catches. Selecting only nine winners from so many excellent submissions was a tough task.
Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the winners, who each receive a share of the $1,575 in cash prizes. You can view the winning shots below.
Follow our Instagram account (@gofishbc) where we’ll also be featuring the winners, along with some of our other favourite photos throughout the year.
Category 1: Luck on the Lake
We asked for your snapshots of anglers in action on a B.C. lake.
Category 2: Fishing Buddies
For photos of your fishing buddy, whether it be a family member, friend, or pet.
Category 3: First Catch
We asked for photos of a first catch, which could include first fish ever caught; first of a particular species; or first fish of the season.
To learn where you can also catch a Horsefly strain of rainbow trout, use the Stocked Fish tool on our website. Choose Lake Report at the “Select Your Report Type” option. Then, at “Select Your Fish Type,” choose Rainbow Trout under “Stock Species.” Filter by “Stock Strain” for Horsefly R. Finally, click “Generate Report.”
If you missed the deadline or didn’t win this year, be sure to try again in 2023. We’ll be announcing new categories and asking for submissions starting in the summer.
