LOL...too shallow for what?

maybe try the river slightly east of the Cap. Not sure what the regulations are on the Seymour but there has been fish there.

If you mean that the canal only has 1/2 the bottom covered ........ then it's in great shape. Let the snaggers around the Bailey Bridge and those that call that even "fishing" have at 'er. Too many dink floats on it for me ...

The Vedder too low! Now that is amusing. I guess there isn't enought current for a 3 oz. weight to move. Maybe some people should try plunking with those betties. Welcome to the show people it will be running from now until december!

I would bet right now that the vedder is fishing quite well for both springs and early coho. Definitelt give it a shot.

Sept 18 - Vedder

Was on the Chilliwack today; some places above Vedder crossing. Very quiet but I didn't get there until around 2pm. River is very clear and quite low. Saw a few guys fishing here and there but didn't see anyone with fish. Perhaps some were caught earlier in the morning, at least looking at the amount of row bags/beer cans at a couple of places.

Original thread topic: "How is capilano river COHO fishing like now?"


So Capilano then...to answer your question unclesam, the cap runs start to pick up in October...big rains will help as it seems only then will they open up the dam, although sometimes you get lucky and they open it up even without the rains.

Regs on the cap I would have to look up to be absolutely sure, and you should too. In past years it has been fully catch and release only for coho, even for hatchery fish, which is the same for steelhead on that river. If you are looking for retention, the Chinook can be kept though, but please check the regs, don't go by what I am typing here as I am only half way through my morning coffee...

I hope that helps with your question, for those of you who want to talk about the Vedder, I am sure there must be at least one thread on that topic around here somewhere...

Good luck to you unclesam.

Looks like the dam opened up yesterday unclesam, with the higher water it would be worth fishing the cap now and especially as the water levels drop back down again. Here's a link to the water levels cap webcam:

Nice to see some earlier action out there, let us know how you do if you head out.

:cheers:
