  1. Fly Fishing Discussion
    I'm new to using a large arbor fly reel and just had to say how much I really enjoy fishing it. Mine is a Snowbee Geo but the make probably secondary to my point in this post. Being able to catch up to a crazy coho that runs at break-neck speed from 100' out to inshore, goes around behind me...

  3. Region 2 - Reports

  5. Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey Everyone I have recently moved to Vancouver from Ireland. I would consider myself an experienced angler but it seems that the techniques used here, especially for salmon fishing are quite different so I suppose even after 15 yrs fishing back home I am in the newbie category. I joined...
  6. Hookup a Partner
    I'm looking to head to the Vedder tomorrow morning bright and early. Wondering if anyone wants to meet up? Not the most experienced angler, still learning the ropes and the river. Not incompetent either. Also the lower Fraser is opening up to salmon fishing again...or well I should say the bait...
  7. Region 2 - Reports

  8. Fly Fishing Discussion
    Just wanted to mention that the number one way to kill a Steelhead due to catch and release is to catch them over and over in warm flows such as those being experienced right now, in the Fraser Valley. Just becuase a fishery is open does not make it a well planned fishery. Sometimes leaving...

    I saw on the news the other day a 72pd spring taken at Sonora Lodge near Campbell River! Wow what a whooper,the angler said he is going to mount it for his wall. Maybe one of the members can post a link up here for a pic of this magnificant specimen and then we can all debate wether it should...

    I took a drive down to Peg Leg today to check out the mayhem. It didn't take long until I stumbled upon this: Now hopefully everyone on this site realizes what is wrong with this picture. Of course there are some people who will not, hence the reason this picture was taken. The fish in the...
  11. Saltwater General Discussion
    The regulations state that "There is no limit to the number of fishing rods a licenced fisher may use in tidal waters, other than the tidal waters of the Fraser River where the limit is one line per angler". Anyone have an idea where the the "tidal waters of the Fraser River" extend to. How far...

    Hi Guys, I am coming over to Canada from the UK for three weeks from 29th August driving from Banff -Jasper- Whistler and Vancouver, mainly hiking sight seeing, but as a keen coarse and fly angler I hope to spend some time fishing for trout in the rivers/lakes on the way, maybe salmon in...
  13. Freshwater Professional Reports
    Sport fishing column for August 23 to 30, 2010 One of my favorite fish to pursue is the desert trout. Though not prolific in numbers, like the rainbows in our high catch lakes, I find these fish to be well worth the time and study it takes to master them. This particular strain of...

  15. Freshwater General Discussion
    I totally don’t know what I’m doing and would like some advise…. Help me! I am heading up to Shuswap Lake and would like to do some fishing, but I don’t have a bloody clue what I’m doing. I am not a fisherman. Usually I have a actual angler to set me up and tell me the rules and such. I have a...

    Nicola Valley Outdoors Fishing Report for July 26th 2010 Summer is definitely here. With the higher temperatures mornings and evenings are the best bet. Alternatively, going deep with a downrigger or lead core line and your favourite lure. Good choices would be plug type lures such...

    With only 1- 2 weeks left for the Skeena and Kitimat Chinooks I have to report some of the nicest fish we put to the photo factory this summer, so far! It all comes down to the guides that work for us and this year we are quite happy with our line-up. Pics of Angling Guide Richard Pow and client...
  19. Freshwater Professional Reports
    Things have picked up with the warmer weather, particularly in the high elevation lakes, but it has been a double edge sword. The lower elevations have slowed down as the summer doldrums kick in and the fish head for the deeper and cooler water. This time of year expect to see some sedge...
