Hey all,

I am new to the fishing scene and fairly new to the vancouver area. I was curious if there is any fish in Lynn Creek and also what is the fishing like in the Seymour River. I spend a good deal of time on the North Shore so those seem like the best fresh water fishing spots (besides Rice Lake). Thanks!

Here is a quote from last year regarding Lynn creek in our reports section...(must have 20 posts+ to read)

ribwart said:
There is a small contingent of locals that care for the creek. It's runs are small and as it's name implies it is a small creek. Many of these locals have been working hard for many, many years to protect it. Spots are limited, and the system cannot support much angling pressure.

There are a great deal of systems throughout the lower mainland and Fraser Valley that have much stronger runs of fish, and can handle sustained pressure from the Fishing community. Personally I do not fish systems like the one mentioned above. By avoiding flows such as these, I satisfy my desire to have as little impact as possible on such delicate systems.

My opinion,

Capilano and seymour are a couple of hatchery supplemented rivers close to Vancouver that support decent fisheries if your timing is right...

Good luck!

Thank you very much for the info...I cant see those postings yet but I will check it out when I can. I agree that it should be left alone. Where are some good spots on the seymour (as long as they are not too private). I wont be fly fishing so I know there is a section of the river I cant use. Does anyone know if drifting with yarn flies works at all. I have used them up on the Campbell River on the island and they were money there!
