If you say the words “Fish Truck” to anyone around McBride usually what they think of is the vendor who comes around here once a month in an old school bus full of frozen fish to sell. He lines the sides of Highway 16 with plywood signs painted with neon orange spray paint proclaiming, “Prawns”, “Halibut”, and other ocean delicacies.
This is a totally different kettle (or more accurately, “truck”) of fish that I am blogging about today.
I came upon this fish truck the other day when we were in the park. It hauls live baby trout around the central part of BC to stock the lakes. The Fish and Wildlife employee in the photo told me that locally they put trout fingerlings in Shere Lake and Little Lost Lake.
