Are there still cutties and whitefish in the Stave at this time of year, or is that all done now? The other question is, does this river have a big enough resident rainbow population to make it worth fishing in the late spring/summer?

i dont think the Stave river has any resident bows :confused: at least i have never seen one caught. or heard of one caught. I would imagine most of the fry are gone which would mean the cutties will be on the move, the whitefish i have no idea. :cheers:

This is info from a very good fly chucker. He fishes this river alot.

the Stave:

This river has given me 35 lb Springs, 28 lb Chum, 20 lb Coho, 10 lb Pinks, and 4 lb Rainbows, all on the fly. The action during it's summer stonefly hatch is compareable to our interior rivers. Again I didn't just go there and walk away with these fish, it took time and study. The point it the fish are there.

Yup got it from newsman. He has a wealth of info especially on the local fisheries. I believe he rights a column in our local paper about the local fishing. It is the one article that makes it worth reading the paper.

We're lucky enough to have Ralph Shaw write for the Comox Valley Record :thumbup:. Another great wealth of information on BC fly fishing. I've read every one of his books and they're definitely worth reading if you're a fly chucker.
