  1. [FISHING REPORT] Ravin the Stave

    Region 2 - Reports
    Too much southern comfort in the hottub on thursday night prevented me from going to the vedder early as planned so grabbed the drift-rod and headed to the Stave to get rid of some roe too long in the beer-fridge. Got there about 9:30am and the Harvest Festival was in full swing. Walked the...

    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...

  7. Vedder Fishing

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey Everyone I have recently moved to Vancouver from Ireland. I would consider myself an experienced angler but it seems that the techniques used here, especially for salmon fishing are quite different so I suppose even after 15 yrs fishing back home I am in the newbie category. I joined...
  8. [FISHING REPORT] Stave River Oct.7

    Region 2 - Reports
    The river is seriously slow, saw a bunch of people out there doing their usual snagging and couple of fly fisher.

  12. Kitimat Fishing Report Sept 30, 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    With the rivers in full blown out conditions, we sit and wait for the drop and clean, current color and texture resemble chocolate milk. Yes 200mm of rain in a short period took us from the lowest water levels of the year to a log jam moving tumble. All spawned out Salmon cannot fight the...
  13. The Middle Vedder. Worth the walk?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Question to all of you who fish the middle vedder runs this time of year. I do not have waders, and I usally short float tipped Jigs or blades. The hike in around twin cedars ( which I did once last year )seems to keep the crowds away just enough to enjoy some personal space on the flow. My...

  18. Reasons for the "gongshow" at bars like Jones, Pegleg, etc.?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Is there a reason for the shoulder-to-shoulder fishing at bars like Pegleg and Jones? Is it the accessibility of these locations? The quality of the bar (i.e. fewer rocks + debris to snag tackle on)? The names/popularity? Something else? A combination of one or more these things? I fished Jones...

One of our first was: ‘Brigantine Marine, the Best Little Oar House in Langley, BC’ That got a mention in local newspapers but ‘The Reason They...
