    Region 2 - Reports
    so finally i decided to get out and fish when my rod has been collecting dust for a long time. It was stupid of me to not bother to get new lines etc, cause i have no idea how long 2 years storage shelf will last. Apparently the big problem for me today was LOSING my hooks, i was tying them...

  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...
  5. [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.

  8. Thunder/Lightning effects

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey guys, Was going to head to the lake this morning and suddenly we got hit with wicked rain followed by t/l. What effect does that have on fishing? Should I sit back on my butt and watch football or wait out the rain and hit the water? thanks,oldman.
  9. Have you upgraded old school guides to new ones?

    Rod Wraps!
    I recently scored a pin rod built on a Fenwick HMG 1262 blank. It has a very nice feeling overall but the movement of it seems not damped enough to my liking. Could the heavier old school guides be a reason? Would replacing the guides to newer light ones make a big difference? I am not sure if...

  13. Sockeye in the Vedder

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been hearing talk about the Cultus Lake sockeye in the Vedder, and in my 15 years of fishing that river, I've NEVER seen one. Until today, that is. I've been watching the government website for the water levels on the Vedder/Chilliwack for the last two dismal weeks, and the recent rain we...

  15. Setup for casting spoons.

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Sometimes I'll go down and cast spoons for coho down in the lower vedder. Last year I just took my cheapo trout rod and real and got into quite a few nice fish. Landed all my fish but it did feel a bit too light and was wondering what you guys would recommend for a setup. Maybe a smaller...
  16. Lightning and thunder

    Freshwater General Discussion
    fished up by gill,we were in a boat, spectacular lightning, and then rain. we were there from 4-7, 2 fish landed, 3 lost beside the boat . After lightning and thunder started we did not touch another fish. Is this just random chance or do you think lightning and thunder CAN impact flossing?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hearing a lot of conflicting things on sockeye... I've never fished for them... some say low tide, some say first light... some say anytime, all the time. I was thinking of heading out to the mouth of the north arm tomorrow early morning... it's just a hair after high-tide at 5am, is it worth...
