    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...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    My fiancee and I spent 6 days in Tofino in Aug. and we fell in love with it. We fished with a guide I know from Mexico and had wonderful fishing for salmon and halibut. We decided to spend several weeks up there next summer. We are going to pull a fully equipped boat up, fish for a week at a...

  6. steelhead poaching

    Freshwater General Discussion
    so we have quite the steelhead poaching problem in the south coast, mainly with our summer steelhead. I have come up with a plan to help the conservation officer in catching or knowing who is doing it. I know over the past few years I have found filleted carcases, and even gut piles and blood...
  7. [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...
  8. Trout Fishing on Lakes in the Fall

    Freshwater General Discussion
    HI, I'm new to this forum - what a great site by the way! I've gained some valuable knowledge by reading through a lot of the topics, and I really appreciate it. I've spent the whole summer repairing and refurbishing a boat that I bought in the spring (older 14 ft aluminum) and its finally...
  9. Post-Sockeye Fraser Tips Please

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Most falls I find myself fishing the Fraser Tributaries (Vedder, Harrison-Chehalis). After frequent summer excursions to different locations on the Fraser for sockeye this past summer, I wondered to myself, "What does salmon fishing look like here after the fall closing when the Fraser opens...

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Well I've made it back from another summer of salmon and halibut fishing in Ucluelet BC. And what a summer it was. Excellent numbers of chinook salmon 18 - 35 lbs, and a few to 49 lbs. Get to outside south, southwest corner, or the Hyson. Get your big spoons and plugs down to 35 - 99ft and...

  12. Fishing on pounded Steelhead in warm water

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Just wanted to mention that the number one way to kill a Steelhead due to catch and release is to catch them over and over in warm flows such as those being experienced right now, in the Fraser Valley. Just becuase a fishery is open does not make it a well planned fishery. Sometimes leaving...
  13. No boat, Harrison Mills Area This Weekend

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I'm off with some friends for a golf weekend at Sand Piper, near the Harrison mills area. Funny thing... I can't golf as I am still taking it easy after a summer back issue. I'm looking at going fishing (sans my boat) on Sat/Sun. Anyone have some ideas for me. I am setup for bar or fly fishing...
  14. Hello!

    Member Introductions
    Wow, what an amazing site! I'm very excited to join and learn from this group of like-minded fishermen. A bit about myself: I'm born and raised here in Vancouver, and have been fishing as long as I can remember. Most of the fishing I've done has been up at Savary Island near Powell River in the...
  15. If you fish for sockeye, this is a MUST READ

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I took a drive down to Peg Leg today to check out the mayhem. It didn't take long until I stumbled upon this: Now hopefully everyone on this site realizes what is wrong with this picture. Of course there are some people who will not, hence the reason this picture was taken. The fish in the...

  17. Pitt Lake Camping

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been promising my 9 year old that I'd take him boat camping this summer since May or June. Work keeps getting in the way (cue Cat's in the Cradle) and I'm running out of time before school starts. I was wondering if any of you guys know of where I could take him camping with the boat for a...
  18. [FISHING REPORT] More Fraser Sox Showing up North. Another Huge Run is Pushing Through! Sox Run Size

    Region 2 - Reports
    A friend of mine hooked into 18 yesterday, up on the north island! They said they couldn't get those buggers off the downriggers! I thought the action was hot up there when I was up there 2 weeks ago, but it's bigger now:) Then he saw a native seiner do a food-fish set and it was nasty big haul...
  19. [FISHING REPORT] August 18, 2010 Fishing on the Fraser

    Region 2 - Reports
    My son and I went out for a couple of hours to Wellington Bar. It is a nice place to BB for Sox, except there are a couple of nasty snags mid bar that eat up a lot of tackle. This is the third time out in the past week. I hit a sockeye and it fought very good. Got it up to the bar and one...
