    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    I just bought my second baitcaster (Shimano Citica 201E) [third if you count my Walmart sturgeon reel] reel this afternoon and I notice that in the free spool, the line guide does not move back and forth with the line. I did a couple of research through google and found the term "non-disengaging...
  6. [FISHING REPORT] October 5, Okanagan Lake *OK Centre

    Region 8 - Reports
    Was such a sunny day when I woke up in Kelowna today I had to head out to do some shore fishing! I took the dog with me and arrived at Okanagan Centre around 10AM. Hopped the pesky fence they have put up half way down the pier (the dog just fit underneath the edge). I started out the day float...
  7. We all look better in shades

    Contributer Discussions
    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...
  8. Sink Rate Fly Lines

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    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...
  9. [FISHING REPORT] Marmot Lake

    Region 5 - Reports
    Was out with my son visiting grandpa in Nazko, and decide to try our luck on Marmot Lake. The sun was shining brightly, a slight ripple across the water from a nice breeze and fish showing all along the rushes and plant life, to about 20 or 30 ft out. My 6 yr old son went with the traditional...
  10. hello

    Member Introductions
    Hi I am from Terrace B.C. I have fished the Skeena system, Kitimat system and the nass system for years. I have become very interested in two handed fly rod systems and am currently researching everything I can find about the rods and casting methods for using them. Eventually I will take the...

  12. Spinner / Spoon Techniques

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Want to try casting spinners and spoons for cohos later in the fall. What is the best technique (s) ? Is it just cast and retrieve ? Do you cast quartering upstream and let it swing ? Do you point your rod tip at your spinner on the swing ? Upstream ? Downstream ?
  13. Setup for casting spoons.

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Sometimes I'll go down and cast spoons for coho down in the lower vedder. Last year I just took my cheapo trout rod and real and got into quite a few nice fish. Landed all my fish but it did feel a bit too light and was wondering what you guys would recommend for a setup. Maybe a smaller...

  15. Salmon in rivers: do they bite? Do they feed?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hello All, I just went fishing today on the Fraser River around Sapperton Landing off the shore for a few hours and caught nothing--even though salmon were jumping out of the water all around me. I was casting Gibbs Kit-a-mats, Crocs, and Fox spinners of various sizes, all to naught. Not even...

  18. Custom Spinning Rod

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently took up building custom rods, and decided that my latest build would be a rod for my neice. She lives in Kamloops and my brother takes his kids out to the local lakes quite frequently, either still fishing from shore, or trolling very light gear. I wanted to build a rod that she could...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I'm looking for suggestions on a decent reasonably priced baitcasting reel. Am looking to primarily use it for chucking big hardware for pike in the near future. it will not see a whole pile of use every year, maybe a couple trips so I don't wanna break the bank on this one!:). Any suggestions...
