    Well in typical hot and cold fashion Edith slowed yesterday. Still into around 8-10 fish but nothing compared to the 5th. Still managed a nice football of a rainbow and the weather was unbelievable! Nice racoon eyes from my shades. Only a couple brookies to mention of both around a pound. Best...

Alot of little guys in different areas of the lake but there are a couple holes where the bigger fish are...

    Just thought I'd post this as a reminder to all to be careful out there! On Saturday, I decided to visit some familiar spots along the Squamish north of Ashlu. The torrential rains of last week sure brought the river up to incredible heights - the brush along the banks was stained with silt at...
  9. Saltwater General Discussion
    I had this situation happen to me a while back, and it's still kinda bothering me. I was trolling out at the Cap, and it was pretty busy out there. I do my best to keep out of people's way, and really try to anticipate what the other boats are going to do. I rarely get upset with people who...

    The regulations state that "There is no limit to the number of fishing rods a licenced fisher may use in tidal waters, other than the tidal waters of the Fraser River where the limit is one line per angler". Anyone have an idea where the the "tidal waters of the Fraser River" extend to. How far...
