  1. 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...

    Fished the Bella Coola River on July 30th. Pinks and Chums were running. The Chinook run was ending. Had 5 hookups. One big one peeled off all of my 20lb test line from my spinning reel and then snapped the line when it reached the end. One salmon and one trout/dolly spit the hook. In the...
  3. Vancouver & Sunshine Coast
    Heading out for my first trip this year. I have been very late on getting going, on holidays all of July! Going to try South Arm or T10. Any Suggestions? Lots of Sock's? Is it worth dragging an anchovy in hopes of a Spring? or just go for the Sockeye's?

    Went to my favorite river on Thursday, July 22nd. It seemed cool, was overcast most of the day. Saw little hatch and only a couple of fish taking off the surface. Caught a few rainbow who rose to the dry fly. The saving grace for the day was the Dolly Varden who were quite willing to accommodate...

    I would of loved to be out bar fishing the Fraser today, but with other things to do later on, decided to hit the Chilliwack for a bit in the morning in search of red springs.

  15. Region 3 - Reports
    Another Roche Lake Hog This isnt my fish. We were trolling along when the guy asked if we could help him out as he could not get the fish into his smaller net. It was a beauty. This was July 5th. Fishing was actually much slower than our previous trip.
