My thinking is that if salmonids are listed in a river then there would be a native/ enhanced run or maybe strays that DFO needs to regulate. I haven't done any research to see if there ever was a native run of pinks in the Stave. Does anyone know?

Just called DFO office in Steveston this morning for current Pink salmon daily catch limits:

Stave - 2/day from Hydro dam to railway bridge
Chilliwack/Vedder - 2/day from below Slesse creek to hwy 1 bridge
Harrison - 2/day from Harrison lake to Hwy #7 bridge
- 2/day from Hwy #7 bridge to Fraser confluence.
Fraser Tidal waters - 4/day. :beerchug:

During pink years there is a strong run of pinks in the Stave. I haven't been there this year to see if they have shown up yet, but they certainly will be in there at some point soon.

the crowds tend to gather mostly end october -november for the Coho /Chum time

try the channel to the left of the boat launch you can walk it and scope out fish thats great water for coho in November and of course it is horrible water for chucking gear so fly fishing is best

or try what we all call "the toilet bowl" which is where you launch the boats i have hit many a fish in there before coho mostly ;D

most people stick to the Vedder or Chehalis until November ish time then we all spread out again all over ;D

tight lines

Exactly what hook said. But there is also a few other spots as well. Just look for what we call frog water. That is water the is hardly moving at all. Again terrible water for gear chuckers but great water for us fly guys :thumbup: .

but remember if your looking for good frog water for pinks they do like it to have "some" flow running through where as coho like it quite stagnante and dead calm like a giant puddle which is why lots of people fish the toilet bowl for ho's but they like soft current also when there is nowhere else

Mefish let me know when your heading out and you could get some company or perhaps the other way around

Thanks for your input on the subject guys. :cheers: I got off early from work yesterday so I picked up Scruffy and we went out to the stave to check it out. If there is a run of pinks coming through this year they're definately not in there yet. We checked out several parts of the river on both sides and did not see a single fish. Perhaps it is still too early for them? I was hoping to hit the Stave for Pinks this weekend but may have to go to the valley this weekend and chuck flies in the Fraser instead. ;D

We fished thre mouth of the stave yesterday morning ,Although the mouth is producing a few we did poorly further up towards the damn. best was at the mouth tossing small spoons. We did better at the mouth of the vedder.
