    Region 3 - Reports
    Tried the Knutsford area with hope of hitting a new lake that a member on here made me aware (thanks bronjuan) of but the wind was gusting pretty good up in the foothills so I decided to go up Tranquille to Red Lake which I know holds big fish but I had only been to in the hardwater season...

    Region 8 - Reports
    Well, last weekend, Wendy and I headed out of town to Manning Park for one last weekend in the trailer.

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Fish On! That is the cry being heard on lakes all over the area. Lundbom is producing well with dragons just off the shore under an indicator at about 8 feet deep. Roche and area lakes are producing as well. An olive damsel around size 12 seems to be good just about everywhere. Horseshoe is...

  13. A cautionary tale

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Just thought I'd post this as a reminder to all to be careful out there! On Saturday, I decided to visit some familiar spots along the Squamish north of Ashlu. The torrential rains of last week sure brought the river up to incredible heights - the brush along the banks was stained with silt at...

    I would really appreciate some advice on fly lines. I have an 8 weight single hand , fly rod. I want to fish steelhead in the Vedder cannel this year. What type of sink rate would be the best all round line for the area? I tried some T 14 at different lengths but it is hard to cast. I thought I...
