  1. What knot do you use?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    From last season I went home empty handed fishing scale because my knots all slipped (Knot #1). It was raining and the sun went down and I had to go back soaking and nearly blind with nothing. So I ended up using a different knot with a better success after that (trilene). Thought I would post a...

  5. [FISHING REPORT] Stave River Oct.7

    Region 2 - Reports
    The river is seriously slow, saw a bunch of people out there doing their usual snagging and couple of fly fisher. The spawning canal place only had like 3 fishes in there so i don't think its very productive fishing for awhile. But i manage to get out to stave river for an hour before sundown...
  6. First white on the spey

    Contributer Discussions
    Picked up the two hander for some r&r and hit the vedder hoping to hook up with something substantial. Spent some time walking and exploring to get away from the crowds and get to know the river a bit. Found lots of nice water away from the gong shows and hooked into three springs and what I...
  7. Thanks for the 'chovy tips!!!!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I would have posted this in the report section, but it's not a BC Report. I was in the States :) I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the 'chovy rigging tips. I had a couple of friends come up from out of town and one of them had never caught a salmon of any sort. After reading the...

  11. [FISHING REPORT] Sept. 21-25 Quesnel Lake

    Region 5 - Reports
    Went up to Quesnel lake to try my luck for some rainbows after having good luck in July. Fishing was very slow and only managed a few bites before we were blown off the lake. Tried a small lake off the 108 mile road, unsure of the name and managed to hook into 7 trout between 2 and 4 lbs. in a...
  12. [FISHING REPORT] Vedder river sept 25

    Region 2 - Reports
    Well searun and I decided to hit the river for first light to see if we could hook up with some coho. The river was in great shape with fish rising. We decided to start down low with some roe but after an hour or so we had no takers so we decided to move a little further up river where we knew...
  13. [FISHING REPORT] September 23, 2010 Skagit River Fishing Report

    Region 2 - Reports
    I fished the Skagit from 26 Mile Bridge downstream on Wednesday. It was a beautiful day, but the fish were hardly rising. I think I saw 4 fish rise all day, but I managed to hook three of them on dry flies. Green Drakes caught two earlier in the afternoon, and a gray fly of my own making caught...

    I take a day off last Friday, to try my luck in Peg Leg. I've stayed for a few minutes 'till I hook one and try to bring it to shore right away. While it was very close to the shore, there's this duo (ADULT) with camper claiming I snag their line and it was their fish. So I apologized and tell...
  16. How Well Do You Know the Regs?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi folks, I thought I would throw this question out as a little challenge to see how well people can interpret both the saltwater and freshwater regulations. If our good mods feel there is a more appropriate section for this post, feel free to move it. It is primarilya 'salt' question but...
  17. The elusive sockeye

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Arrrggghhh. Just curious if anyone can help me figure out what I was doing wrong. We were out yesterday from 2 until 7 in the pack of boats of the south arm. We watched a crazy amount of fish jumping everywhere. We watch what seemed to be every boat hook up multiple times. I got zilch. Not one...
  18. Dilema?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I was out with my father-in-law today and we quickly had 6 sockeye in the cooler... I told him that I thought we should bring up all but one rod because we'd had our share of double headers throughout the day and didn't want to go over the limit, just as I said this a fish took one of the three...

    Region 3 - Reports
    Well, this year's pontoon trip down the Thommy has come and gone. In 2 days of running the river and fishing between Savina and Juniper Beach, 6 of us managed to hook into only a couple 3 dozen fish with only 2 or 3 of any significant size. The river had been fishing well in weeks prior, but...
