I was not fishing, hovewer me and my wife went to Capilano hatchery for a walk. WOW, so many chinooks are waiting to be released, it's a "river of chinook" in those channels in the hatchery, also thousands for small coho in the glass pool. :thumbup: Anybody know where I can find information on release dates? Want to go there and say "have a good journey"

Walked around cable pool, and we counted school of around 27 steelhead in the pool, they were just standing in the middle, sometimes moving. Saw two guys trying to catch them, tossing lines right into school in front of school, watched them for about 20 minutes, but fish were not willing to bite. Hopefully they didn't. I think they are ready to spawn or already spawned. Leave them in peace. I am not sure how you can safely release steelhead if you pull them all way up to those rocks... It was a great evening.

There a few coho in the system but not many! If the river jumps up after todays rain they should start to roll in.I've always started to catch right i the second round of the playoffs.They usually run for three weeks followed,right away, by the summer run cohos which can get to 6-7 lbs. The cohos on this river will now run til mid November.By mid August early September the northerns will start to roll in too.

Steelhead do make it too the hatchery. If you want to find out about a release date hen just go n the hatchery and ask them about it , they are pretty good about giving info to the curious.

I just got back from a looksie and the river is way up. A good foot and a half and it's still pouring rain. I'll be surprised if they don't start their run now! should run into a few late chrome steel too!

No uck for any of them, the guy at cable pool said he caught a wild 6 pound steelhead that was a little old. Saw no coho in the ladder only two steelhead.

the steelies in cable get harassed but many of them just stage and spawn in the canyon and thankfully dont get pressured. Some pools u can see them rolling in the open tailouts. hopefully the coho will show up soon, cant wait to hook them on the spinning rod and jigs
