    Now that the season is winding down our local Cohos have arrived - about a month late. Oh well, at least there will be lots of spawners. They are 5 minutes from the harbour.

    Contributer Discussions
    Hey all, not much action in the reports section other than sockeye stuff, thought I'd give a heads up to our more long term members. Action is picking up on the vedder this last week or two for lots of white spring jacks and adults. Fish getting taken every day in the canal areas. No need to...

    Headed back to Nova Scotia to attend a conference last week, and was able to extend my stay and try a little atlantic salmon fishing up in Cape Breton on the Margaree River.

    Local town, in BC, needs some help to get back on top.Lets get this done. As most of us can agree, real fishing towns have salmon. (At least a Kokanne) Lets keep this on the West Coast. http://www.wfn.tv/ultimate-fishing-town/
  15. West Coast

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Just got back from my first trip to Port Renfrew. I highly suggest a trip there for anyone who wants to hit the different types of salmon in one day. Had springs, coho, and also took some time to work the muscles hauling up halibut. Could have targeted sockeye also, but I have enough from local...

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...
