Good for you.  I never found anything in the Thompson, but my brother got a nice slug of gold in a spot outside of Avola that was hit hard during the 1930's.  Apparently, the guys there made wages.

   I found the Thompson to be good further towards the Fraser, say Ashcroft and down....I am sure there are good spots everywhere though, it is B.C. after all. I found a few spots with 50 colours a pan at high water areas and low water areas down that way! Would be great to run highbankers there! Never seems to be anything larger than a small picker or big flake...lots of fun to just get out and enjoy the water and outdoors along the Thompson!

Dumb comment by me.  I was talking about the North Thompson.

The North Thompson seems to have little spots here and there, nothing I could say was more than a few colours...maybe if you hit near or on one of the feeder creeks or rivers coming into the Thompson. You also have the awe full bugs up there lol, but not as bad as the black flies and skeeters of Ontario hehe.
