  8. Vedder Fishing

    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...
  9. [FISHING REPORT] Edith Lake October 4th & 5th

    Region 3 - Reports
    Fishing really was unbelievable today. Two really nice rainbows in the 20-22 inch range and shaped like a chinook, just pigs! Countless brookies up to two pounds. Yesterday was a bit slower. Alot of little guys in different areas of the lake but there are a couple holes where the bigger fish are...

  14. Post-Sockeye Fraser Tips Please

    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...
  15. carnage

    Freshwater General Discussion
    came upon this pretty disgusting site just above tamahi yesterday, all told it looks like about 14 sockeye, all roughly filleted, all smallish fish so don,t think they were adams fish from the fraser dumped there, not saying they were not from the fraser but pretty weird to find them that far up...

  17. Fishing on pounded Steelhead in warm water

    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...

  20. how many is enough?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Not looking to be a smart ass here, just an honest question regarding the sockeye fishery. I was thinking today with such a long opening this year there must be a ton of fish being stacked into the freezers of many fisherman. i myself have been out 3 times with a total of 6 fish being put to...
