  1. Chinook on the Shuswap River

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey guys, I recently had the chance to fly fish on the upper Shuswap River above Sugar Lake and fell in love with the setting. After a bit of research I found out that there are actually salmon that spawn here and thus offer a great fishery, of course, they cant make it past the Shuswap falls...

    Region 2 - Reports
    Lots of fish in the river. Mostly Springs but I did see a few coho around. All the popular spots where the fish are stacked were prety busy. The river was in good condition, but very clear.Get out there before the rain blows her out. Cheers.

  8. Reel songs

    Freshwater General Discussion
    It's sad one can't let a reel sing. You know, the sound that increases your heart beat a bit more than the tug, the run, the jump. (the adrenaline rush) I hate and love the mute on my baitcaster. I can fish stealth or, if I know I'm alone (not these days!) turn it on. Got some old reels I wanna...

    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...

  14. Sockeye in the Vedder

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been hearing talk about the Cultus Lake sockeye in the Vedder, and in my 15 years of fishing that river, I've NEVER seen one. Until today, that is. I've been watching the government website for the water levels on the Vedder/Chilliwack for the last two dismal weeks, and the recent rain we...

    Amazing to see so many sockeye in the river, and the crowds they brings with them but...I am wondering if anyone has been out bar fishing for springs in the last 2 weeks. I would like to spend some time with the wife relaxing and catching some springs. I have had my fill of sockeye this year...
