  1. Best Fly Fishing Lake

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Donnely Lake in region 5 of the Cariboo has to rate as one of my favorite fly fishing lakes. 5 lb. fish are not uncommon and I personally have taken 8 lb. plus by the rock outcropping on the south east side of the lake. It has a lot of restrictions so check the regs. but because of the...

  4. Fly Fishing the Sunshine Coast

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I spend most of my summer up at my family's home near Powell River/Lund and will be bringing my fly gear this year. I'm looking for tips on lakes, creeks, or rivers up near there that can be fly fished and will be worth a missed day on the saltwater.

  9. Kanaka Creek

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I stumbled upon Kanaka creek the other day and spent some time there this morning. There were a bunch of Chum (I caught 2 on a egg sucking leech) and I could see a few cut throat in a few pools but couldn't get them to bite. Fishing on a slower shallow water was a nice change of pace. Would be...

    Here are some shots of two caught in the last few days waiting for the caddis hatch. Which only came on sparse in the morning and evening because of the high heat. Rats, foiled again. It has been over 6 years since I caught a hog on the dry up in the Cariboo, not for a lack of trying though LOL...
  14. Best day on the river.

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    In 1992, during early June my brother and I went up to the Cowichan to spend a lazy day on the river. We took several bottles of home brew porter that we made a few months earlier and sunk them in a cold spring coming out of the clay bank just below the train bridge below the bridge pool. It...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    It's April and my arm is beginning to twitch. I look into my chiromomid box and wonder which will it be first this year? And more importantly which lake? A brown and copper ice cream cone 14 like last year. Or will it be the usual suspects. Depends upon the lake that ices off first, I guess...
