BCfishingreports.com wants to thank everyone who has contributed to BCFR over the years, without member participation, this site would not be what it is. As you may already know this website is one of the only truly FREE fishing forums dedicated to anglers who fish British Columbia's river's, lakes and oceans. BCFR was created to help bring awareness to our resources, and to promote ethical and responsible fishing practices, so that everyone can enjoy them as we do. BCFR is a venue to allow great people like you to share in the enjoyment we all get from fishing our beautiful and plentiful waters.

There are some key advantages and rewards on BCFR that everyone who registers should know about:

  • UPDATED DAILY FISHING REPORTS!!!
  • Various fishing articles
  • links to other great sites
  • a private messaging service
  • guide and tackle shop reports
  • special vendor advertisements

...And those are just some of the things you'll find here as a registered member to this site. Without registering, you have what's called "Guest Status", you can only view a minimal amount of the sites sections and no ability to reply or post threads. Once you register, you will have access to more sections of the site and can post replies and start new topics on your own. Just keep in mind the entire forum has many different sections that are only viewable by all members with 20 or more posts and the VIP Forums require 100 post to enter. So there's so much more to see...sign up Now!

It's FREE, absolutely no fees, no catch, except for more fish and some great topics on fishing...


There is a graduated system of great features available on BCFR.


Once you reach 20 posts, you will then have a whole new world of sections with fishing reports from all over the province, and even from around the world! You will be able to view daily updated fishing reports for Freshwater and Saltwater locations in British Columbia.

At 100 posts, the VIP Access Forums will appear on your screen, and you will have access to more fishing photo's, great fishing video’s, with clips of anglers battling fish, techniques and much more, including inside information not seen by all. ;)

UPDATED DAILY FISHING REPORTS!!!

  • Various fishing articles
  • links to other great sites
  • Social Groups
  • a private messaging service
  • the 100 post club!
  • guide and tackle shop reports
  • special vendor advertisements

This is not designed so as to exclude people from a section, but more to encourage people to include themselves in the forum as a whole. We hope this will increase the amount of positive contributions and loyal members to the site, while also increasing participation without just increasing the number of redundant posts.

Thus we encourage posting not just to get post counts up, but to increase quality participation. We will go through and delete posts if we feel someone is Post Padding, posting the typical "nice post dude!" or “I agree”, just to reach member status will have their posts deleted.

We have developed this graduated system through a variety changes to the forum over the years. Well, since we have made these changes to BCFR, it has become one the most used angling forums for fishing in BC. We have a great variety of people from around the world visiting this site daily, and consider ourselves a friendly and open, conservation minded fishing community. Our mod staff are a bunch of diehard anglers who take pride in our resource and promote ethical and responsible angling.

Another reason we feel encouraging people to participate is due to the responsibility we must take as a fishing website to promote ethical and responsible angling. Before the advent of fishing forums such as this one, most anglers went to their local shop, a guide or an experienced friend for fishing information. They may have learned new techniques or secret spots from these sources and likely were getting information from people with the experience and the vested interest in the resource to promote responsible fishing.

Now, websites abound, with information on anything fishing related that you could imagine...but this information is unfiltered. Often bad habits, techniques, and abuse of fragile systems can arise when the information isn't presented in a way that has our resource as the number one priority...

Thus BCFR strongly feels that it has a responsibility to ensure the right information is getting out there to promote ethical and responsible angling. We want anglers to have the knowledge and understanding necessary to make sound and responsible decisions on how, when, where and why they fish. Allowing ignorance of the facts to persist in our fisheries will only exacerbate the growing problems regarding how anglers treat the resource. Thus we actively pursue honest informed discussion on all issues, encouraging participation, because often that is when the information sinks in best.

We think you’ll find the people who visit this website very amicable, open minded and genuinely excited to share in the their fishing experiences. Soon you just might find yourself making some new friends and participating in the forums on a regular basis. The post counts are up, and more people are contributing and participating in the forum everyday, so Welcome Aboard!

When registering, we encourage everyone to fill out their profile as this not an anonymous forum! Once you register on the forum using your email address, fill out your Profile information, and are no longer just a guest, even before you make a post, you will be able to view a section called "Site information"...this section contains all the recent info on our great site, including BCFR Posting Guidelines. Please be sure to read through these guidelines after you have registered.

Once you've done so, please feel free to introduce yourself in the Introductions section, take a few minutes to tell us something about yourself!

We Hope you will enjoy the site and welcome you aboard!


Thank you,
