I just thought to let you all know aboout the latest on this extremely low river.The info I got from my brothers down on the rez is that the wiers under the Marine Drive bridge has been opened to let fish through and the wall of capilano below the trailer park bridge has been opened daily to let fish through.All of this has been done in the interest of conservation.With the high water no where in sight the fn's are letting fish through that have been waiting a long time get through.So at the high tide during the day fish are getting over and through thew lower wier and pushing on past the Marine Drive bridge freely.


Alot of fresh chums, springs, and cohos are on the move.Most of the fish are suprisingly still silver but some darks have been caught.Especiallt the springs

Let's hope that the rains come soon!!

Tight lines guys!

The water to where the weirs are is only about 6" of water, there where 6 guys there yesterday trying to rip them as they came up, now that aint fishing......... For the Cap it needs a good week of heavy heavy rain before that water moves, since yesterday the flow has dropped some more, you can cross the river now with out getting your feet wet.

The level of flow right now is less then a ditch :oops:

It should be shut down ....DFO can stop all fishing in a heartbeat...happens back east all the time whenever low returns are expected or extreem low water conditions...they just close it to all fishing, Native and Sport.

fished lower part today around 5, high tide. No real bitters my buddy hooked into 2-3, not sure if was snagged or not but all got off. One native guy was down there and he snagged about 5, all let go. A fair amount of fish but not many being fairly caught.

I know the place. The water must be super low there...12'' or so? Unless you are just south of the green bridge.

Great to hear that someone is catching fish. I was at that same spot Saturday and didn't see a single fish, not enough water yet.

i fished for a hour last night below the foot bridge just to see how far up the river they are.
there was about 2 dozen right at the weir (fishing closed of course) and in the pools below held about a dozen.
none were hitting anything, swithed up from spoons to drifting a fly and some wool.

there was a tone dead at the weir as well, looks like we need alot more rain.


i will be going to the mouth tomorrow and wiil lyk more then
