While the bass are exchanging high-fives amidst all that extra milfoil in Vaseux Lake, the same can’t be said about the residents.

The lake is a real mess, overgrown with algae and weeds, which make it a chore to paddle a kayak or retrieve a lure. (Again, bass must be calling all the neighbours for a block party.)

But seriously, something is wrong with this lake and the powers that be have a responsibility to address the problem.

It’s nice to see the Okanagan Basin Water Board step in with a plan to target the lake for rototilling. But we have to focus on what’s causing the accelerated growth of all this milfoil.
