So pretty much the only fishing I have done lately has been barfing for dollies/bulls. I have been out 3 times and now gotten into 9. Some decent sized ones as well.




My set-up is simple. A three way swivel tied to the main line, with a peice of line about 12 " tied to the bottom of that with a snap swivel on the end. Use about a 14-18" leader and hook tied to the middle of the three way swivel, add a 2-3 ounce weight to the bottom, add nice chunk of roe. fish the out going tide and cast out about 40 -60 feet. That is about it. The spot, and I hope that I don't get flamed by the old timers for this, Brownsville. Beside the Patello bridge. Here are a couple pics of the set up and size of roe chunk!!




And one more pic of a really nice spotted one from the other day. Brightest spots I have seen on one this year!!


If you get out there, good luck, they are pretty fun!! :cheers:

Sweet post BS, real pretty one at the bottom there,,,,its amazing there are such good opportunities in the city. Think of all the people going across that bridge every day and not many (if any) are thinking of the fishing down below it.

Hey there BS Beauty's I never would have thought there were fishable areas down in that area that would actually produce quality fish :thumbup: My uncle used to take me down by the mission bridge many years ago during the spring to fish for dollys and cutts. We used to have a blast , but as we got older our focus changed to steelys and back wash cutty's. That is probably one of the most relaxing ways to be out on the water, hot cup o joe and the faint ringing of a bell in the distance meaning fish on, thats what I call serenity :cheers:
Cheers,
Crazy D

Sorry I couldn't make it down there today!! Glad you had some luck though, nice fish!! ;D


About the other pics, that crap has been there since I have been going there. ??? Have tried to get some of it out, but a lot of it is anchored and or real sharp and a bit dangerous. Something should be done about it though. As the tide goes out, if shows us more and more of the Fraser's treasure's. ::) ???

Hey Rick, not all B.C is you can still bonk a bulltrout in region 4 the Kootenays, but you are right most of the province is catch and release on all Dolly Varden and Bulltrout
That would be in lakes only, no?


Just looked at the regs. Wow, yes you can keep bull trout in region 4, between April 1 and Oct 31 :wallbash:

Britguy, I have seen pretty much every oldtimer out there using 2 hooks. I can't bring myself to do it. Besides, you go through way to much bait and I get plenty with just one hook. ;)
I never use dew worms, strictly roe, but I wouldn't rule it out. Think that you would get a lot more coarse fish action, and well....they are just plain annoying. ;D
