    Region 1 - Reports
    I just got back from fishing the Puntledge and WOW! I hooked into 50 or more chums each day and the odd older chinook.

    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...

    I have a broken pre-1994 Powell flyrod (graphite). A 600.00 rod when it was new, it carries a lifetime warranty but the Powell Co. has since changed ownership (Charles Schwaub) and their policy on the original rods is 50% upgrade on a new rod, which are pretty much just generic middle of the...
  7. Blank Recommendations - Batson Or Talon?

    Rod Wraps!
    I am thinking about building a rod for my friend who breaks rods so often. The size will be 10 and half feet and rating will be 10-20 pound line and more or less $100 will be spent for the blank. He fishes mostly on Chilliwack - Vedder system. Which one do you think will last longer before...

  12. [FISHING REPORT] October 2 2010 Port Renfrew

    Vancouver Island
    This was the coho derby weekend at Port Renfrew Marina. I don't go in derbies but was out with a few buddies anyways. There seemed to be enough coho to keep people busy, we had a slow morning but the afternoon picked up real good. All fish on green and white spoon and green flasher, not a hit on...

  14. [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...
  15. It's time for a new downrigger rod!!!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    So I've been contemplating getting a new downrigger rod to go with my Islander MR3, single action reel.... Choices rattling around my head are a Sage SA4120 or getting a custom 10'6" Rainshadow rod of the equivalent. Some guys are saying that a 12' rod is simply too much rod for downrigger or...

    Region 2 - Reports
    It's been awhile since I got out and went out this morning. Made it to the river by 7;30'ish. The river had risen at least 3 ft over night. I thought OMJG it's going to be a good day.

  19. Tragedy averted at PegLeg

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was walking back to my car this morning after a morning fishing at PegLeg when I heard shouts coming from around where I had been fishing. A guy in chest waders had slipped in the water, his waders filled with water and he couldn’t get up. For all the talk of what a “gong show” Peg Leg is...
  20. The elusive sockeye

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Arrrggghhh. Just curious if anyone can help me figure out what I was doing wrong. We were out yesterday from 2 until 7 in the pack of boats of the south arm. We watched a crazy amount of fish jumping everywhere. We watch what seemed to be every boat hook up multiple times. I got zilch. Not one...
