    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...
  2. Shimano Citica 201E Broken???

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    I just bought my second baitcaster (Shimano Citica 201E) [third if you count my Walmart sturgeon reel] reel this afternoon and I notice that in the free spool, the line guide does not move back and forth with the line. I did a couple of research through google and found the term "non-disengaging...
  3. Harrison River

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey Guys Hoping to get out on the Harrison to chase some chum in the next few days. I've never drifted maribou jigs in this system before, and was looking for some advice on where to start out, and the technique to use. I have a boat, so moving around isn't a problem. Feel free to PM me if you...
  4. [FISHING REPORT] vedder oct.4

    Region 2 - Reports
    so finally i decided to get out and fish when my rod has been collecting dust for a long time. It was stupid of me to not bother to get new lines etc, cause i have no idea how long 2 years storage shelf will last. Apparently the big problem for me today was LOSING my hooks, i was tying them...
  5. 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...
  6. Vedder Etiquette

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently read a post that referred to someone being "lowholed" on the Vedder and it got me thinking about how I feel about this and what other people might think. Here's my position: On the Vedder in the fall almost no ones moves. I realize that rotational angling is the proper way to go...
  7. steelhead poaching

    Freshwater General Discussion
    so we have quite the steelhead poaching problem in the south coast, mainly with our summer steelhead.

  9. Sage 7100-3RPL Rod

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hey Guys & Gals, I've been asked if I want to purchase a Sage 7100 rod but the only problem is, neither one of us know what it's worth. It's an RPL rod (not the RPL+) which comes with a sock & tube and has never seen water. The person won the rod years ago in a silent auction for the PSF and...
  10. Salmon in rivers: do they bite? Do they feed?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hello All, I just went fishing today on the Fraser River around Sapperton Landing off the shore for a few hours and caught nothing--even though salmon were jumping out of the water all around me. I was casting Gibbs Kit-a-mats, Crocs, and Fox spinners of various sizes, all to naught. Not even...

  13. Baitcaster reels problem

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi all I am new to the region and started to fish my first time with bait casters/level wind reels. Is there a trick not to get so many bird nests?:( I think I spend half of the time fixing them. Is there any shop which will do some lessons? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  14. Dilema?

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I was out with my father-in-law today and we quickly had 6 sockeye in the cooler... I told him that I thought we should bring up all but one rod because we'd had our share of double headers throughout the day and didn't want to go over the limit, just as I said this a fish took one of the three...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hello all: I just picked up some new spoons to use (Ukee area) on the last trip of the year for me. Unlike the Tomic spoons I've used before, these came with treble hooks on them. Yep, I know, must crimp the barbs - no problem :peace:. However, would it be better to replace the treble...
