    Exclamation New to BC fishing, asking dumb questions :)

    Hello everyone!
    Thanks for reading my thread.

    I'm looking for experienced person to go catch some fish together. I'm not new to catching fish, and before moving to BC I was catching some carps and pikes. But I need some help because local regulations are really complicated.
    I live in New Westminster, so looking for somebody in Greater Vancouver area.

    Will appreciate either invitation go to catch fish with somebody or any links to useful materials and readings.

    Thanks,
    Eugene

    Some useful links:

    This one shows all the applicable regulations and changes to the fishing in Fraser river, where I'm going to go this weekend:

    And regulations page for area 29, containing links to specific areas etc.:

    Welcome to the board. A great introductory place to visit for freshwater fishing in BC is here: http://www.gofishbc.com/home.aspx

    Do you have access to something that can get you out on the water? Like a boat, float tube, pontoon, etc?

    Nope, for the moment I don't have anything like that and thinking more about casting from a shore

    If you are near the Fraser or Vedder, check out those threads lots of Pink Salmon and they can be had from shore, try Two Bir or Duncan Bar in Fort Langley

    Welcome to the site. You are in the right spot, I suggest reading the forums and exploring your local waters... you will meet like minded folks and perhaps make a good fishing buddy. Talking to folks in the fishing store is another good option for getting some good advice on where to find fish.

    If you want to catch lots of big fish, then the vedder is the right place for you! Give it another 1-2 weeks and the river will be filled up with pinks!!! Anything pink will work, jigs, spoons, spinners etc etc. fred's custom tackle which is just a few mins from the river has all the gear you need! Fred's also has maps so you know where to go! Good luck out there!

    Thanks for the info!
    I bought a license today for Tidal fishing. And visited a fishing spot at Sapperton station. Well, I saw lots of people there, but only one person caught couple pinks. I'm excited to start! Will make an order in all my tackles and equipment.

    Since you have your tidal license, instead of going down to sapperton, you could go to mission bridge. Go at high tide and cast spoons and do a slow steady retrieve. You should catch lots of pinks if youre there at the right time. Dont go to sapperton if you only saw one person catching, theres way better places to catch way more pinks. Try to get a bright one like the pic below if you want good eating, although thats only really possible in the tidal fraser, unless you get lucky.

    Many thanks for that! I appreciate Your input.

    What about... actually, what do I do after I caught a fish? I mean, I saw from the fresh water regulations, there is something about that you can't keep fish alive. So what do I do here? If I release it, that is clear... but if I decide to keep it?
