depends if you have a boat or your style of  fishing....
nicola  lake can be good at times but the  fish aren't that big.< I trolled there.  stump lake  can be tough,  flyfishing I think is the best approach there. lumbaum is pretty good only boats under a certain hp. are allowed but  I have caught them from shore there too with just a worm ,alot of ppl. get em there flyfishing. go to the tackle  store there they may help you. It's called the
Powderkeg, on the main drag there. good luck, I hope it's not too windy there for your trip.... it can be at times but not always.

I like Boss/Davis/Tahla and we fished Boss twice last weekend (Friday and Sunday for half a day on the way to/from Osoyoos) and landed a couple of fish each time. Tahla was still very green and will probably take another week or so before it's fishable.

We were fishing worms but there was a few guys seemeing to have some success with black/olive chironimids
