Please guys, before you freak out on me again, just listen up. I've got one simple question.

When do they come in? I don't drive and this is my closest and most probably option, so I just want to know when I will have a chance in hooking one.

If anyone feels they can help me out, a PM would be nice on where I should start walking and search. I'm obviously new to steelheading so any help is appreciated.

If you've got a problem with this thread, just simply don't reply.

Thanks :peace:

You have heard this before......There ARE steelhead in the Allouette River from November to April. There are NOT VERY MANY, so unless the water conditions are really good, it is a difficult river to have any success on. They can be caught by all the usual methods and gear, however it is mostly a "pocket water" river so you better be prepared to due a little bushwhacking, and get you short float/12 inch leader technique down pat.
You would be far better off to set aside a day and hit the Vedder/Chilli when the conditions are good, as there are way more fish there(more fishers,too) but the reality is.............you have a much higher chance........Ortho 8)

This is a tough river to fish if you do not drive as alot of the river is private property. I have lived here for over 30 years and have fished it since I was 8 and it is a tough river to fish especially this time of year as the river runs low and crystal clear making finding fishable water pretty tough.

In a few spots below 224th there is a lot of snarly landowners...I wouldn't be wading this area as there are a lot of Chum redds in the area as well...Better to wait til the river comes up a bit and hit the spots that are accessible.......Ortho 8)

private property means nothing when you walk down the riverbank.

unless your below 216'th
There are more areas then you think. All up around 248th and even in the hot rocks Davidson pool area the land owners own the river bed. Even around 228th.Yes the river bed and not just the high water mark. Wading in the river is a bad idea because of the redds. All I am saying is be careful as fishortho said there are some really snarly land owners.

Where can you find what areas of the river are deeded to what landowners? I would like to be able to get this information before getting harrassed.

fished that river for about 20 years, NEVER had a problem. in the early 90's some people came out and said I was tresspassing all I said was I was not and if I'am call the cops..................yep never seen any cops.

so I would not worry about snarly land owners that think they OWN THE RIVERBED.... :p :p

Some of the member of A.R.M.S live on the river. Send an e-mail to ARMS and ask what is private and what isnt as they would be more than happy to help.

The river is very low and clear and tough to fish. As someone said unless you have a car its tough.

why dont you just say, "dont fish here because I dont want you to"
instead of trying to steer people to other rivers.
Nobody cares if someone wants to fish it, it is just that the ones that fish it alot and have built an understanding with certain land owners do not want that ruined by other people just walking on their land and lipping them off by telling them that their property is not their property. All that some of us are doing is informing people that this river is not like other rivers in the lower mainland and you just can not go and fish where ever you want. I for one do not care who fishes as I usually have most of the river I fish all to myself during the week. I have run into maybe two people in three weeks :thumbup:

Alouette River Managment Society. Due to their hard work the city of Maple Ridge has strict by-laws regarding building near the river so that this river does not become another Coquitlam river.
