  1. Jumping fish?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I fished sturgeon slough this afternoon and witnessed several times large schools of small (2-8inches) fish jumping in crazy schools. They were small and silver and were in large schools as the middle of the river (where they were) was bubbling up. Anyone have an idea as to what they were?
  2. [FISHING REPORT] Lower Vedder Canal Oct 8th

    Region 2 - Reports
    Got the call out at 10:30 AM yesterday that my fishin bud was off work and on route. I figured I'd bring my first ever cured roe to see how it held up. Met him at KWB :oto see what was coming up and there was plenty of fish all through out the lower canal as the water was higher than I would...
  3. We all look better in shades

    Contributer Discussions
    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...
  4. [FISHING REPORT] Vedder River - Sept. 30th

    Region 2 - Reports
    I headed out for first light this morning. Started down by Keith Wilson. I don't know the river very well, if at all, so my day was pretty experimental. The water was high and fast, in comparison to the one other time I headed out a couple years ago. I had my pin, so it was hard to get my...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Had an hour to kill Sunday am so took a drive down to Duncar bar to watch all the socs still jumping! Sitting there I noticed a boat slowly coming down river, being pushed by the current.... as the boat got closer, I saw it was a 12-14' tin, motor raised and no one in it! Has anyone heard of a...
  6. Salmon in rivers: do they bite? Do they feed?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hello All, I just went fishing today on the Fraser River around Sapperton Landing off the shore for a few hours and caught nothing--even though salmon were jumping out of the water all around me. I was casting Gibbs Kit-a-mats, Crocs, and Fox spinners of various sizes, all to naught. Not even...
  7. 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...

  9. [FISHING REPORT] Aug 20- 2010 - Van Harbor & local area

    Vancouver & Sunshine Coast
    Was out this afternoon in van harbor, as it was a little too rough for the little woman on the strait.. Caught two 20 pounders around the freighters. The first one was nabbed by a seal, but we got it in. It was a little mangled so we kept that one. It ended up being a white spring. We got into...
  10. Sockeye Salmon Fishing in Steveston...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hello Fellow Fishermen/Women, I live in Steveston and see lots of fish jumping in the river but was just wondering how do you fish for them? I have heard that people are going to Shady Island and flossing for them. I was wondering if I had a chance fishing from the dyke with lures or with a...

  13. Steelie Jumping Question

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Funny thing happened today while on the flow... about 100 or so feet down the river a steelhead started to jump clear out of the water several times in a circle. Kind of reminded me of the chums in the stave during their run. Now this section of the river is not wide and there's no way I can...
