    So I have to admit I dont know who exactly organized it, or if any bcfr members took part in it, but yesterday there was a fishing derby on the Okanagan lake which I, along with my stepdad and a friend took part in.

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Spool Keepers Made Easy an easy DIY!!! (mod wasn't sure where to put this because it is actually salt and fresh related) I recently saw this info on another site and appreciated the cool idea.

  6. Thanks for the 'chovy tips!!!!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I would have posted this in the report section, but it's not a BC Report. I was in the States :) I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the 'chovy rigging tips. I had a couple of friends come up from out of town and one of them had never caught a salmon of any sort. After reading the...
  7. [FISHING REPORT] Vedder River - Sept. 30th

    Region 2 - Reports
    I headed out for first light this morning. Started down by Keith Wilson. I don't know the river very well, if at all, so my day was pretty experimental. The water was high and fast, in comparison to the one other time I headed out a couple years ago. I had my pin, so it was hard to get my...
  8. Mono vs Braided in the Vedder

    Freshwater General Discussion
    So after this summers crazy sockey run in the fraser i now have my reel full of 65 pound braided line. I know this is overkill for the vedder but is it nessary to switch back to mono? Is it possible for the fish to get spooked by my braided mainline because its much more visible than the mono. I...

  10. Vedder Etiquette

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently read a post that referred to someone being "lowholed" on the Vedder and it got me thinking about how I feel about this and what other people might think. Here's my position: On the Vedder in the fall almost no ones moves. I realize that rotational angling is the proper way to go...

  13. 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...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Arrrggghhh. Just curious if anyone can help me figure out what I was doing wrong. We were out yesterday from 2 until 7 in the pack of boats of the south arm.
