  1. [FISHING REPORT] Red Lake October 12th

    Region 3 - Reports
    Tried the Knutsford area with hope of hitting a new lake that a member on here made me aware (thanks bronjuan) of but the wind was gusting pretty good up in the foothills so I decided to go up Tranquille to Red Lake which I know holds big fish but I had only been to in the hardwater season...
  2. [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. The spawning canal place only had like 3 fishes in there so i don't think its very productive fishing for awhile. But i manage to get out to stave river for an hour before sundown...

    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...

    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.

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Went out both afternoons and explored a few spots below the Tamihi bridge down towards the Railway bridge. The fish are coming in; hooked into one coho, a couple of springs and landed a chrome spring jack which is on the barbecue. Still quite slow but seems like every day more springs are coming...

  10. [FISHING REPORT] Marmot Lake

    Region 5 - Reports
    Was out with my son visiting grandpa in Nazko, and decide to try our luck on Marmot Lake. The sun was shining brightly, a slight ripple across the water from a nice breeze and fish showing all along the rushes and plant life, to about 20 or 30 ft out. My 6 yr old son went with the traditional...
  11. line suited for deep pools

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    What is a good line for deep slow moving water for targeting mostly cohos? I was thinking possibly an intermediate sink line. Is Cortland 444 any good?

  14. [FISHING REPORT] Port Renfrew - Sept 2010

    Vancouver Island
    Just got back from a week in Rennie with my oldest son. This was my first trip over there, so it was a learning experience. To sum it up, the spring fishing was slow. Not a lot coming in, and most weren't that large that I did see landed. The Coho fishing just started to heat up the last couple...

  16. Best lure for Lake trolling???

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Greetings all, Just after some advice on a good lure/plug etc.. for slow lake trolling. I currently use Lyman's and the occasional Apex spinner, all about 4" long for bigger rainbows with a nice long leader (20'+). I use 4-6 ounce weights and go real slow, I get a fair amount of bites and the...

  18. 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...
