Notice of Activities at sx̌ʷəx̌ʷnitkʷ (Ok Falls fishing site) During the 2022 Fishing Season

July 18th, 2022

Starting the week of July 18th the Province of BC will be constructing a fence along the eastern bank of the river at sx̌ʷəx̌ʷnitkʷ (Ok Falls fishing site) to try to make access to the fishing site along the shoreline easier and uninhibited. The area may have construction and monitoring activity during the 2022 fishing season.

  • In an effort to maintain safe access and delineate the adjacent private residence from sx̌ʷəx̌ʷnitkʷ, a fence is being constructed.
  • Osoyoos Indian Band monitors will be on-site to ensure safe access is maintained during this time.
  • Please avoid construction and monitoring activities as much as possible during the construction period.
  • The construction activities will also include removal of debris on the access rout to provide safe walking access.

The gate along the dam has been unlocked to allow access to the fishing site from the north side of the river. Water flows are high and fast moving, so please use extreme caution both along the dam and the shoreline at the site.
