Went down to the Alouette today for a little while. Had my 8 wt and 5 year old son with me.....was hoping to see a nice coho, but alas the only contact I had was with a number of Chum. On the plus side, other than a pink, that is the largest fish I have ever caught on that rod, and it was a good learning experience :thumbup:. Had 4 on in total that either spat the hook, or broke off before getting them to shore for a proper release. My son had a great time as my cheering section, till the rain finally made him cold enough that he needed to head in. Maybe try the Stave next week.
