best spot in northvan would be the exit towards chilliwack 8) ... lol kidding at this time of the year (steelheading) North van is a hard place to be.. the cap has a few coming in (fish high tide if you do) but right now the water is SUPER clear so itll be harder to fish.. i was there last week and no love.. didnt bother moving too much seeing the water conditions.. low clear slow flow.. as for a spot... you can fish upper river go to the hatchery and walk down from there.. theres lots of room to cover.. be careful the cap is a deadly river.. huge cliffs and water changes a lot and very fast... since you are new to the river i wouldnt cross the river or cross past any chanels. the seymour has very few spots along river side road... same deal as the cap.. high tide.. same water conditions... as for baits.. use small presentations.. thats all i got if you got more q's u can pm me

with the water this low i dont know if a 4-6 inch lure would be the best.. id maybe down size to say some jensen eggs, with a small wool tie, even single jensens may produce.. small gooey bobs.. little roe sacks say 3-4 eggs in there should do.. some spin n glo's in the semi faster water with a little bead.. some jigs too.. little spinners, may work... just experiment.. do remember the cap and seymour are hard rivers to fish even for salmon.. not to mention steelhead.. but just get out learn the river and find spots that you eventually will return to during salmon season.. since you are in the north shore and if you have a car and dont mind driving 100 clicks one way to the vedder (chilliwack) thats your best bet to catch some steel if thats what your dying to do.. if ur more out for the trip and a fish is just a bonus, then the local rivers will do..

here are some tips you may find useful for these conditions..

Anyways good luck out there and show some pics :wink: ...

Also remember to look at the regs.. if you get lucky in the cap every kind of steel is catch and release. (hatch or wild)
