  3. 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...

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    With the rivers in full blown out conditions, we sit and wait for the drop and clean, current color and texture resemble chocolate milk. Yes 200mm of rain in a short period took us from the lowest water levels of the year to a log jam moving tumble. All spawned out Salmon cannot fight the...

They recently completed the autopsy and burred it in the sand to retrieve the bones after decomposition. I...

    Vancouver & Sunshine Coast
    Well, this last week we certainly have had to work harder for these last fish before the closure. They are still out there in numbers but not the biters they were. They have been traveling in the shallows too making it difficult for the dummy flasher set up's required to get these things to...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    ok my 16 ft isnt gonna cut in for the long haul unless i find a 17 to 19 i feel confortable in im thinking of going bigger but then it looks like moorage. it seems to me after a few phone calls you may as well go to a 24 ft cause they will make you pay for that size anyway because of lack of...

  16. 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...
