  1. Newsman's sport fishing column & report

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Sport fishing column for Oct 25 to Nov 1, 2010 One of the keys to successful angling is analysis. I tell students in my fly fishing classes to analyze everything from start to finish, both good and bad, on every fishing trip. Analysis brings theory and theories proven or disproven bring...

  6. large arbor fly reels are awesome

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I'm new to using a large arbor fly reel and just had to say how much I really enjoy fishing it. Mine is a Snowbee Geo but the make probably secondary to my point in this post. Being able to catch up to a crazy coho that runs at break-neck speed from 100' out to inshore, goes around behind me...

  8. Nicola Valley Outdoors Fishing Report for October 20th 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    The water temperatures are now in the zone where the fish are eating everything they can get their fins on before the ice man cometh. Reports from Lundbom are that black micro leeches are still the ticket for fish to 24 inches. Roche is fishing with, you guessed it, micro leeches in varying...

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Sport fishing column for Oct 18 to 25, 2010 "In the best stories about fly fishing…big fish are caught, or lost; people say wild and spontaneous words; events become memory and sometimes; in the hands of a master, these bleed into art." Nick Lyons. Our BC angler's begin their years...
  11. Kitimat Steelhead Report - October, 18 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    The last weeks have been Spey-tacular as guests were fortunate to catch the famous Steelhead Trout on the fly. With the rivers up and down in level like a frog in a frying pan the guys prevailed and never gave up. Fishing from the bush as the rivers are so high that finding a gravel bar to...

  13. Private vs. Crown land

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I’m hopping to find someone more knowledgeable on this mater. Assuming I’m fishing on a river and on the banks are private properties or any form of association or first nations that have legal possession of the land adjacent to the river, am I trespassing? It is in my understanding that the...
  14. Sturgeon Abuse - reported to RAPP

    Environmental, Fishing Politics & Fishery Updates
    Sunday Oct. 10, 2010. While sturgeon fishing we observed these absolute doughheads abusing a sturgeon. It wasn't particularly large but they dropped their anchor buoy and drifted more than 500m down to where we were anchored. They brought the fish to the boat about 100m above us and proceeded to...

  16. Vedder Fishing

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hey Everyone I have recently moved to Vancouver from Ireland. I would consider myself an experienced angler but it seems that the techniques used here, especially for salmon fishing are quite different so I suppose even after 15 yrs fishing back home I am in the newbie category. I joined...

    Got the call out at 10:30 AM yesterday that my fishin bud was off work and on route. I figured I'd bring my first ever cured roe to see how it held up. Met him at KWB :oto see what was coming up and there was plenty of fish all through out the lower canal as the water was higher than I would...

    Well, last weekend, Wendy and I headed out of town to Manning Park for one last weekend in the trailer.

    Picked up the two hander for some r&r and hit the vedder hoping to hook up with something substantial. Spent some time walking and exploring to get away from the crowds and get to know the river a bit. Found lots of nice water away from the gong shows and hooked into three springs and what I...
