  1. Bull Trout fishing Squamish River

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey everyone!:thumbup: Thought I'd finally make an account on this forum as fly fishing is increasingly becoming a great hobby of mine. I'm fairly new to the scene and am interested in fishing for some Bullies in The Squamish River. I've been up there for Chum for the last two years but I'm...
  2. Quesnel Lake Update

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Well obviously I have been neglecting my duties at BCFR. I have been nose to the grindstone with work and grabbing a fishing trip when possible. Haven't taken the time to drop in here. Keep getting emails reminding me but never seem to find the time for it. Today I am trying to kill some time...
  3. Hog rainbow on the brushed leach.

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Here are some shots of two caught in the last few days waiting for the caddis hatch. Which only came on sparse in the morning and evening because of the high heat. Rats, foiled again. It has been over 6 years since I caught a hog on the dry up in the Cariboo, not for a lack of trying though LOL...
  4. Is a drift still possible on Woss?

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    The Woss is a difficult access, on foot at least. From the river bridge just below the lake there is a path but it only goes for a short distance and is very brushed in unlike rivers which see large numbers of anglers. However the Woss is a very good fly river as is some of the water on the...
  5. Stilwaters in Houston area

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Early September I'm going to Houston, BC to fish the Morice for 2 weeks. As a NRA I'm not allowed anymore to fish the rivers there during the weekends, so some stillwater fishing and recreational sightseeing will be done to kill some time there. Besides my Speyrods, my#6 rod is now joining me...
  6. Still water fishing doesn't run deep, sometimes

    Freshwater General Discussion
    It's April and my arm is beginning to twitch. I look into my chiromomid box and wonder which will it be first this year? And more importantly which lake? A brown and copper ice cream cone 14 like last year. Or will it be the usual suspects. Depends upon the lake that ices off first, I guess...

    Freshwater General Discussion

  10. Kootenay KingFisher Fishing report to Oct.07‏

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Moved the boat over to Kootenay Lake yesterday. Got the boat in the water and started fishing by 10:00am. Looked like it was going to be tough conditions as it was bright and sunny,only a small ripple, and the water temp was 57 degrees which seemed a few degrees high still. But we were there...
  11. [FISHING REPORT] October 5, Okanagan Lake *OK Centre

    Region 8 - Reports
    Was such a sunny day when I woke up in Kelowna today I had to head out to do some shore fishing! I took the dog with me and arrived at Okanagan Centre around 10AM. Hopped the pesky fence they have put up half way down the pier (the dog just fit underneath the edge). I started out the day float...

    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...

  18. De-scale rainbow trout?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've always fried rainbows as they've come out of the lake. However, at times I've seen guys de-scale them with something that looks like an SOS pad. Not sure why. Anyone know of any particular reason to do so?
