    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...

    Contributer Discussions
    Hey all, not much action in the reports section other than sockeye stuff, thought I'd give a heads up to our more long term members. Action is picking up on the vedder this last week or two for lots of white spring jacks and adults. Fish getting taken every day in the canal areas. No need to...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    There are some seriously low tides coming this long weekend, with predictions at Pt Atkinson of 3.24 ft, 2.89 ft and 2.85 ft for Sat, Sun and Mon respectively. This is going to cause some major problems for those who launch at the Barrowtown Pump Station on the Sumas and I suppose for Dewdney...

  11. [FISHING REPORT] Tahsis August 13 & 14

    Vancouver Island
    Had another good trip to Tahsis this year. The drive up is still a bugger - took about 10 hours each way with the last hour going there on dirt. Weather was a little touchy the first day (Friday) and getting out was a bit of a challenge. But we made it out to about 5 miles out and got into a...
