    I don't normally do reports but I did have the week off and..... 3 days fishing: short floating roe. (almost wish it wasn't working so I could work on my Jigs and Spoons.) 7-8 hours with the bait in the water. 20 fish played, 8 landed, one keeper (10lb Coho doe) and a number of missed...

    short notice but here it is.... Hi Jim, I know this is short notice and all the work is during the week, but hopefully you could pass this along for me. I am looking for a couple volunteers to help out on the Silverhope next Wednesday (Oct. 20th) and Friday (Oct.22). We will be...
  4. [FISHING REPORT] September 25/26- Corbett Lake

    Region 3 - Reports
    Went to Corbett for the weekend on the 25th of September, birthday gift, and fished the Saturday and half of Sunday. Mixed wind, sun, cloud, and a touch of rain with a variable barometer that dropped at night then slowly rose. Fishing was interesting with takes on everything from nymphs in...
  5. The number of license- holders

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I'm wondering if there is any info on the number of licenses purchased- year by year? It would be interesting to look at the difference which the sockeye run should have made? (BTW- there is some inaccuracy with the time for the post - indicates" Started by nemohm, Today 07:26 PM", actually...
  6. Albion Test Sets & Increasing Chum Numbers

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I noted that the chum return numbers are now really starting to increase. Last few days to be specific. I took a run up the Stave yesterday and had a good look around. I didn't see anything for chums. No jumpers, nothing. It doesn't mean they are not there of course, but what other tributaries...
  7. Fishing on pounded Steelhead in warm water

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Just wanted to mention that the number one way to kill a Steelhead due to catch and release is to catch them over and over in warm flows such as those being experienced right now, in the Fraser Valley. Just becuase a fishery is open does not make it a well planned fishery. Sometimes leaving...
  8. Tragedy averted at PegLeg

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was walking back to my car this morning after a morning fishing at PegLeg when I heard shouts coming from around where I had been fishing. A guy in chest waders had slipped in the water, his waders filled with water and he couldn’t get up. For all the talk of what a “gong show” Peg Leg is...
  9. Numbers at Albion in previous years

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi All, So I was just procrastinating a little by playing around on the DFO site, and I was a little confused. If you look back at the last three, 4-year cycles, the number of sockeye in the nets is drastically larger than it has been this year (aside from 2006). In some cases, like in 1998...
  10. Ruby Creek

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hit the Fraser just above Ruby Creek today. Arrived about 7:00 am. Have been there the lat three Tuesdays and hooked into a good number of sockeye and a few springs. The wife like the sockeye season as she get a fresh sockeye dinner every Tuesday. Today lost two fish at the shore and...

  12. What does the 'daily limit' mean to you?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I'd like to point out and remind everyone that the daily limit IS the DAILY limit! This morning on my way out from Ambleside, I ran into a couple guys in a small aluminum boat who were on their way home after limiting out in a couple hours (I know this because they couldn't stop bragging). I...
  13. How many lines per Person?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    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...
  14. Too many sockeyes/people to bar fish for springs?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Amazing to see so many sockeye in the river, and the crowds they brings with them but...I am wondering if anyone has been out bar fishing for springs in the last 2 weeks. I would like to spend some time with the wife relaxing and catching some springs. I have had my fill of sockeye this year...
  15. [FISHING REPORT] Konni,Fish and Chaunigan lakes..

    Region 5 - Reports
    I headed up into Nemiah valley last week for some visiting and fishing, with an old friend who lives in the area. The fires in the area and the air quality, are just nasty right now. I had planned on a two week trip,but when the CRD shut the road down last night from Lee's Corner to Bella Coola...
  16. Lots of Floaters in Osoyoos Lake

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Been in osoyoos the last week, and noticed a large number of floating dead fish on the surface. You will see a couple on every outing in the boat. They are 3-4 pound fish, but are a bit pail now, and are hard to ID. It looks like they have faint spots visible on the tail, so I figure likely...
  17. Used Boat Registration?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I think this is probably the wrong category to post this in... but will try. I've bought a used boat in a private sale and I was just wondering what the process is to register it and when and were I pay this damned HST? I believe I can operate the boat for a short term with the old number on...
  18. Rep Power?

    Site Features, News & Issue Information
    just wondering what the "Rep Power" rating is about? and how it is earned or differes from members? its listed by the number of posts each member has made and such? thanks
  19. [SEEKING INFO] Make sure your under the slot limit!!

    Region 2 - Reports
    I was out enjoying the opening day of salmon fishing with a friend, we were in his boat and we jumped to a few different bars, we hooked and landed 5 chinook, only one was under the size limit as we thought, we use a stanley tape measure and while holding the fish in the air we measured it, it...
  20. Jones lake - getting biggerfish

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Have fished Jones a number of times and have caught many but the biggest is perhaps last trip where I released a pretty good cutthroat of maybe 17". I've heard there's 2 - 3 pounders in there and a couple of guys I talked to have said even up to 5lb but not sure about that. I've tried trolling...
