Some of you may know me, and know I somewhat of a genuine and legitimate contributor to this site....so here it goes...

On monday I severely threw my back out while fishing at a local flow and after crawling about 1 km to my car, I was told by doctors that I can't go out in the bush/hike around rivers/etc....for a few weeks minimum....HOWEVER,

I have that itch that can't be scratched until I get into some decent fish....and as a result I'm in serious fish-withdrawl.....

can someone please give some starting points to some decent holding water on pretty much any flow in the lower mainland whose access won't kill me!

Your secrets/hints/advice is/are safe with me and would result in a huge boost in karma from the fish gods...hell, just pointing me towards the short cut/easy trails would be great!

I'm thinkin of heading out Tues/Wed, so please, any siggestions would be more than appreciated.


I'm counting on yous guys..

hey DMW, when u post those limits you should also include the part that states your combined salmon total per day is four. the way you posted the limits could be misleading to some, especially newbies to fishing. :thumbup:

I injured my back in 2000 and had surgery to repair a badly herniated disk so I can relate to the pain you feel. I was off the river for 8 weeks from mid-October to mid- December. Was dying to get back on the river. My advice though, would be to take it easy. Sometimes a person gets feeling good and and tries to do too much too soon. Take it easy at first, pay attention to the signs your back gives and make sure you don't make things worse. You only get one back. Take care of it. Mine is pretty good now. Can do most anything I want to do and I appreciate that. I got a good scare and am more careful now. Use good lifting techniques, bend your knees, don't twist and lift at the same time. Lots of good information on back care on the net.
