  1. Flyfishing Mabel lake, any ideas?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Next week I will be heading off to Mabel lake for a camping trip with some buddies before the winter hits. Since I mostly fish mountain lakes, I am not used to fishing on big lakes so I need a few hints. I would rather use my fly rod than my spinning rod, but I think that this might limit me...
  2. [FISHING REPORT] Edith Lake Oct 6th

    Region 3 - Reports
    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...
  3. First white on the spey

    Contributer Discussions
    Picked up the two hander for some r&r and hit the vedder hoping to hook up with something substantial. Spent some time walking and exploring to get away from the crowds and get to know the river a bit. Found lots of nice water away from the gong shows and hooked into three springs and what I...

    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...

    I launched from Summerland yesterday with my step dad and his friend about 3pm and fished until just before 7pm.

  6. Anyone fished the Adams river mouth?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently came across this video, and got interested in fly fishing the mouth of the Adams with an egg pattern for rainbows. I am wondering though, when using egg patterns, if you should use an indicator on a 9ft leader and floating line or use it without an indicator. It would also be...
  7. Chum in the salt/Migratory patterns

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Hi All, So we all hear of beach pinks and beach coho, and maybe the odd beach spring...but has anyone seen beach chum? I've never heard of them being caught in the salt...what's the deal? I'd assume the beaches toward squamish would produce some...advice? and the secondary question to...
  8. [FISHING REPORT] Very First Steel on the Fly!

    Region 2 - Reports
    I know everyone is in the sockeye right now, but man oh man...I have to share this! We took a kid and his mom out fishing today and they had a blast with small bows. I left my 5 wt at home thinking maybe I can get lucky with a salmon on my 8wt. So while they were fishing, I thought I'd try a...
  9. Fly or Spey for Sockeye in Lillooet?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey gents was thinking of taking my spey or single hander up to Lillooet to try and get some sockeye instead of the gong down in Hope. Just wondering if any of you have some advice as to location? The mouth of the Seton River looks pretty inviting and have heard of guys fly fishing from Lillooet...

    Nicola Valley Outdoors Fishing Report for July 5, 2010 West Pothole. That is where my grandkids caught their first trout. Poppi is as pleased as punch. I am not sure who was more excited though, Addison and Austin or their moms! Dew worms and pink power bait were the ticket. Peterhope...
