  5. Salmon/Steelhead Fly tying

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I'm looking for some opinions on these two flies. I normally fish stillwaters and haven't been tying very long at all. I have only ever tied local such as chironomids, caddis, leeches etc. But I've never attempted flies for salmon or steelhead. These are my first two ever attempted which I...

  7. [FISHING REPORT] My 10 day on the Morice

    Region 6 - Reports
    Normally we spend 1 week at the Kispiox and 1 week at the Morice, but due to the ridiculous 'entrance fee' First Nations ask there for being on their reserve ($100 a day per person and another $100 for the pontoon), we decided this time to spend our time totally at the Morice. As aliens we...

  9. Vedder river Steelhead smolts, release or not?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Every July, once the Chilliwack/Vedder re-opens for the beginning of Salmon season, there's a rush of people to the river. I am usually one of the people in that rush, and have -- in the past -- been really quite disturbed by watching some little family with tiny little fishing rods and a bucket...
  10. One fine day on the Copper

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Once when coming to a run about half way up the road on the Copper we actually came upon a run that had not seen a fisherman in several minutes. And this was during prime time when a few of the Steelhead were willing to look in close for holding water. We got down on our hands and knees and...

  19. Baitcaster vs Centerpin

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hey everyone, I have been looking into getting a new rod and reel combination after attempting to go for salmon on a spinning rod. It seems like everyone suggests for salmon to either get a baitcaster or a centerpin. From what I have found out it seems like baitcasters are a bit more versatile...
  20. using trout as a sign that there's no salmon in locale?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I got a theory for just about everything, and a new one popped up into my head this weekend out on the Vedder... About 3 hours into my morning of casting (which started right on the click of legal 'first light') and at around the same time I was gently removing yet another #2 barbless from the...
