  2. Is a drift still possible on Woss?

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    The Woss is a difficult access, on foot at least. From the river bridge just below the lake there is a path but it only goes for a short distance and is very brushed in unlike rivers which see large numbers of anglers. However the Woss is a very good fly river as is some of the water on the...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Most falls I find myself fishing the Fraser Tributaries (Vedder, Harrison-Chehalis). After frequent summer excursions to different locations on the Fraser for sockeye this past summer, I wondered to myself, "What does salmon fishing look like here after the fall closing when the Fraser opens...

Ideally it would be an early start Sat. morning, fish from the boat and shore when we find a school, camp, then fish...

  14. Lower Pitt River

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried drift-fishing off the shore for salmon around this time of year. It's been a while since I've been out and it's real close to home. I was considering going out to the end of Harris Rd. in Pitt Meadows with my centre pin to give it a try. If anyone...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi everybody, My friend was telling me about this great way to catch sockeye. Can you give me some advice? I have got the dynamite, but I'm not sure what the best coloured fuse is. Also, how far out should I throw it? Is it best to let the stick sink all the way to the bottom before it...
