    Hey guys! I was heading up to Pinaus Lake via Six Mile Creek Rd. and had my trip disrupted due to the spring washout that has obliterated parts of the road. I ended up getting permission to cross through "private" land (see point 2 below) and was able to access the lakes. In retrospect, it...

    I'm planning a 5-7 day fishing trip around the beginning of August. My goal is to camp and target Salmon and bottom fish. I'll be leaving from Victoria but don't mind a long drive. I used to fish Nootka a lot but haven't been there in 4 years. I'm not sure what it's been like lately or if...

    I'm sure disappointed, because we can't have Fads in Canada... What is fishing by the FAD? Fad term means "Fishing Aggregation Device". It is well established in Australia coast and it provides an excellent fishing opportunity for sports fisherman. FAD's are now being placed about 5 miles a part...
