We are fly fisherman and have stayed at numerous fishing resorts/lodges in the interior of BC. The four of us recently spent three nights using two cabins. The owners are very friendly, hospitable, helpful, customer service oriented and informative. It is not a long drive from Kelowna. Directions are easy to follow and there is 15 km of dirt road to the resort that is pretty decent. You could drive in using any type of vehicle. The cabins face the lake and it is a beautiful setting. If you stay during the week you will get great deals on renting a motor boat and/or rowboat for fishing. In terms of catching trout (rainbow or brook), it is hard to predict your luck on any lake. We did catch a large number of fish, but the vast majority were very small and we threw them back. Given it is a reservoir, you can only use an electric motor. This means quiet, but it also can be very slow against large waves/wind so beware. Postill Lake is not big so easy to get around and find your sweet spots. They have a fish cleaning station that was much appreciated and there is a knife ready. Very quiet in the resort area and full of stars late at night. In regards to the cons there are some challenges. They do not offer a garbage can outside or inside of the cabins. The free wifi located in the office/router works and then doesn't work. The mattresses are dated and not comfortable. You will not find any dish soap or any type of soaps or tea towels/rags etc. If you want to use the public showers, you must use an older loonie and take at least two loonies as the shower doesn't last very long. There is no bedding so you need to bring your own. You can rent bedding, tea towels etc. The water needs to be treated/boiled before usage. Overall, a decent experience but the little things were aggravating yet offset by the super great owners.
