  1. Bent Rods Fishing report October 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Hello everyone, hope you had a great fall of catching fish. September saw a huge push of fall Chinook in the Fraser Valley and our guides had some great days fishing spinners on the Fraser and other systems for these hard fighting large fall Chinook. The odd chromer is still entering the...
  2. Alaska Chinook Bycatch - Again!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Fishermen in the Gulf of Alaska have accidentally caught an estimated 58,336 king salmon this year, an unprecedented level of bycatch that could lead to new fishing restrictions. In recent years the Gulf of Alaska’s bycatch numbers have hovered around 20,000 fish. This year’s numbers surprised...
  3. Kitimat Steelhead Report - October, 18 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    The last weeks have been Spey-tacular as guests were fortunate to catch the famous Steelhead Trout on the fly. With the rivers up and down in level like a frog in a frying pan the guys prevailed and never gave up. Fishing from the bush as the rivers are so high that finding a gravel bar to...

  8. Albion Test Nets

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was just comparing last years test numbers compared to this years just to get an idea of what the chum situation's looking like, and it turns out the numbers showing up this year have at least doubled over from last year at this same time, which is good news. However, the main thing I noticed...
  9. 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...
  10. [FISHING REPORT] Sept. 17 Fraser Mouth Sox

    Vancouver & Sunshine Coast
    Well, this last week we certainly have had to work harder for these last fish before the closure. They are still out there in numbers but not the biters they were. They have been traveling in the shallows too making it difficult for the dummy flasher set up's required to get these things to...

  13. 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...

  18. the quiet, calm areas of the fraser for shore fishing

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've avoided the Fraser entirely for about 10 or 12 years. The Gong Show I saw down there the few times I did go back in the late 90's left such a bad taste in my mouth I just never went back. That means that I have NO idea what bar is what bar or where or how busy they are. Generally, I...
  19. Newsman's sport fishing column & report

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Sport fishing column for August 23 to 30, 2010 One of my favorite fish to pursue is the desert trout. Though not prolific in numbers, like the rainbows in our high catch lakes, I find these fish to be well worth the time and study it takes to master them. This particular strain of...
  20. DFO and their Management of the Fisheries

    Environmental, Fishing Politics & Fishery Updates
    So I am a young fisherman on this forum, and I respect everything I've read, as well I like to give newer fishermen/women new ideas to catch some fish. After saying that, I speak without financial or extreme moral bias towards any of the directed fisheries. My problem is with the current...
