Hey guys, just wondering about the run timing up there this time of year...I usually only fish these systems for steelies, but am looking for a quieter spot for some salmon fishing this saturday with the girlfriend for my b-day...wondering how the run timing is in here? Thinking that the confluence of the cheak/squam would be good, or even up to cheekeye from there???? Anyone provide any insight?
Thx,
Rib

Cheak. & Squam. are dirty until weather gets colder. I caught a Coho jack in the Mamquam on Thursday. A few Chum & Ho's are in. Bulk of run still 3 weeks away or so. Mamquam should be clean now as it was dirty Thursday.

hey Rib, confluence not good at all, water is to low, and dropping. Mamquam has fish, but nothing too exciting. Cheakamus is, on the other hand, full of fish. Clarity still an issue below Culliton creek. PM me, and I'll give you a little further insight.

Well....fished parts of the cheakamus and the mamquam rivers yesterday. I had forgotten how nice those little rivers were as I hadn't been up there in a year or two...saw the odd fish roll, water was quite cloudy visibility was only an inch or two on the cheak...and about 2 ft on the mamquam...still a bit early on these rivers...but a nice day anyway. Will post a few pics later

hey Rib, that's wild, last sunday the mam was crystal clear, and there was finally 3 or 4 feet in the Cheak. Guess I'll keep working for a few days.

Yeah, it'll come around nicely though once the weather gets cooler. I saw some natives fishing around cheekeye with no success, and didn't see anyone on the mam, and the water was quite low there, even for that river.Had the girlfriend using a little centerpin I picked up for her, she's a natural, can't wait till she gets into her first fish....I've had some fantasic days on these rivers, and find they are an excellent alternative to more popular flows, I'll always return to them year after year.

One item of note for anyone who might want to give these flows a try, they cannot support a heavy fish harvest pressure for most of they're stocks, except maybe chum, so if you are going to go out and visit these spots please tread lightly, and enjoy!

Here's a couple o pics of the day, all in all it was a great day...

Some beautiful views...
