  1. We all look better in shades

    Contributer Discussions
    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...
  2. [FISHING REPORT] Vedder River - Sept. 30th

    Region 2 - Reports
    I headed out for first light this morning. Started down by Keith Wilson. I don't know the river very well, if at all, so my day was pretty experimental. The water was high and fast, in comparison to the one other time I headed out a couple years ago. I had my pin, so it was hard to get my...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hello All, I live in N. Vancouver and have tried Ambleside in W. Van a couple of times for salmon, but got schneidered (caught nothing) both times.

  5. Pitt Lake Camping

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been promising my 9 year old that I'd take him boat camping this summer since May or June. Work keeps getting in the way (cue Cat's in the Cradle) and I'm running out of time before school starts. I was wondering if any of you guys know of where I could take him camping with the boat for a...

    Cutt / trout streams on western Vancouver Island I'm from the US and have not fished in BC before. I am looking for suggestions for streams close to the Campbell River area that are good for cutts or rainbows and have decent bank/ shore access. I'm planning to fish mainly for pinks but want a...
  7. Where to fish near Hope?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I’ll be driving next week from Kamloops (Coquihalla Hwy) and will hit Fraser at Hope. I’m wondering what are the productive places near Hope? Well known is the Scale-Haig (Landstorm) Bar, but with all of the reputation of it, I’d probably avoid it. What about Coquihalla River Mouth Bar...

  10. Idiots transplanting bass

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was recently fishing Big Lake off the Likely road with my Dad and son. There was a small boat working the shoreline quite quickly and I joked that it looked like a couple americans fishing for bass. Well i ran into these folks at the boat launch later and it turns out that is exactly what they...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I've been out a lot lately, and haven't noticed a single charter out by QA, Bell Buoy, The Hump... do these places dry up over the summer? is there another run of salmon anytime soon? Besides running over to the gulf islands, where can one find some decent chinook this time of year? Thanks

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi, I am looking to take my 2 boys ( 6 & 8) fishing this weekend and wanted to hit a spot other than the gong show that is Green Timbers Lake. In the past I have kept them busy catching pikeminnow at Derby's reach but got tired of retying hooks after getting repeated snags. Any ideas...
