Just thought I would yak about the weekend and share some pics as someone requested on the roe question post. This Saturday I hit up the Vedder for most the day. Things were pretty slow for me. Didn't touch a thing but after talking to a number of anglers that had the same experience I didn't feel so bad :-[. I don;t know why things were so slow for me and others but the water was looking very nice. Tried a number of baits but not a touch. Anyone else have any luck out there? I also don't have a clue where the most productive parts of the river are at this time of year but I haven't seen much of the bottom end so I went for a good tour below Vedder crossing. Some very nice water down that way.









The buddy pup saying hello...






Thought this fish saw somewhat interesting. It had almost no spotting.






















This is one of the ODD strays stockers that come over from Michigan. Looks to have some gill plate damage as well.














Hope you enjoyed.
Peace, Zach

Great pics! I like to colors in the 2nd tail shot alot.

As for the situation on the Vedder, with the extreme low water we have right now alot of the fish are being trapped at certain spots in the lower river. Also deep pools will be starting to fill up with fish waiting for rain.

Hope that helps.

funny how they all are different looking... some look like over sized trout while others look like fish we could catch around here....are those all the same strain of fish? its cool to see how they vary in appearance.

Thanks for all the comments all. A bunch of those macro pics were taken by Chris (float4bows) on his Canon S5. The others were taken on my craptacular Kodak Easy Share CX7430 (which is now pooched from a recent near death dunking!). All those fish are either from the Saugeen or Niagara rivers. Those were taken this year or last year I'm pretty sure.

Is that the Joe? Could tell you were from the m.w. from the angspec and mykiss.. You should show these guys your set up...freaks me out when your using 8gm floats etc..
Xgolfman,

Reels gave it away eh? For fishing the Saugeen or Niagara I use between 10-20 grams under my float, so not that much lighter than out here and usually 8-10lb flourocarbon leaders if the water is clear.

Oh man those are some good pics. The one with the ice flowing down the river in the background is priceless. Thats when you know you have a true addiction.
LOL you think thats bad? You should see when theres a snowstorm happening to top it off. That was a bluebird day! Sometime we fish in the dead of winter when theres slush flowing and you have to choose your drifts wisely..gotta do what you gotta do I guess.

Man, that makes me feel WAY better about maybe having to move to Ontario for school. Great pictures. Good luck on the Vedder.
Holy bucksh*t! Long ways to go for school man. Must be some sort of specialized course eh. If you do go the fishin ain't all that bad!

Any fish that looks "stale" or coloured up is because they have been chilling in the river for months on end (since mid-late September in some rivers) and were caught in late winter (February or March). Don't see many fresh fish when the waters are too cold for migration, catch the odd one in winter though. The clipped fish with the buggered gilplate was fairly fresh and caught in February.

Mabey Birdman should check these pics out, there are a few fish in there that are IDENTICAL looking to a bc steelie, and dont resemble a rainbow at all.
Although I do believe the Ontario's "Steelhead" to be a land locked version of our steel, im sure if those feeshes' offspring were returned to local waters they would migrate to the sea just like their relatives.
Either way they are a truly beautiful fish! I have had the pleasure of catching both varieties and I have to say I am equally pleased with their fighting abilities. But there is just something more satisfying about catching a BC Steelhead. :thumbup:
