  2. A cautionary tale

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Just thought I'd post this as a reminder to all to be careful out there! On Saturday, I decided to visit some familiar spots along the Squamish north of Ashlu. The torrential rains of last week sure brought the river up to incredible heights - the brush along the banks was stained with silt at...
  3. Sturgeon Etiquitte

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Here is the question that I post to you all: If you are anchored in an area with a few other boats, sturgeon fishing of course, do you pull anchor and move if another boat is chasing a fish headed your way? That being said, here is why I ask: Yesterday, I hooked a really good fish, saw it a few...
  4. Halibut Trip Recommendations

    Saltwater General Discussion
    My Dad has offered to take my son, brother and I on a halibut trip next spring. Not sure if spring is a good time. He is talking Alaska (Cook Inlet) for 3 fishing days or maybe someplace closer for a few extra days. I've (he either) never fished for halibut before, and am not sure we really need...

  6. New species discovered on the Fraser!!!!!

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Anyone ever seen a Spring-Sockeye hybrid??? It looks like a Sockeye. It is the same size as a Sockeye. And yet it fights like a Spring? I didn't think it was possible and yet the guy that had it hooked was so convincing. He kept yelling "Spring On" and "Cummin Down". He made everyone pull in...

  9. spincaster vs levelwind for sockeye: what are your thoughts?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I tried bottom bouncing for the first time last year on a trip to the upper fraser and now that sockeye are open look forward to getting out in the next couple of days. The guide that took us set us up with spinning reels but that was probably because everyone can use a spinning reel. I...
  10. Vedder Vehicle Break-ins

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Every year I seem to hear about more break-ins on the veddar. Is this more prevalent this year than in the past? Doies the RCMP do anything about these bums? Have they ever set out a decoy vechicle to catch these rats? I would like to hear some people's thoughts on this subject. Thanks

  12. Trolling deep with a leech or flat fish

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I'm headed to sheridan park resort tomorrow and I plan to bring an old trolling set up with lead core line but I really want to use my fly rod and type 6 sink line with a big ole leech to entice a beast from the depths. I was also considering tying on an apex or k5 size kwik fish if the...

  14. [FISHING REPORT] Jones Lake thoughts

    Region 2 - Reports
    I fished Jones Lake Reservoir for the first time ever on Saturday. Beautiful setting, great mountain vistas! The lake itself was very low, completely ringed with exposed stumps, roots and sand and gravel bars, giving it a rather stark and sterile appearance (a little too sterile??). The fishing...
