Fairly new to the area :) what local (if any) rivers can be fished and be easily accessed and what times of year for the particular species is best. Too be honest I'll even be happy with a nice run to trot the float down in the dead of winter :confused:

What ya should do is take a look at a map theres lots of streams close to where u live, pic one and explore! Thats the best part about fishing is finding new water to fish on your own! Your lucky where you live theres alot of water to cover on the north side of the fraer river!

Alouette is where I would go and explore.

Saw about 15 clean looking fish today, but I was not fishing for them.

The big one that I paid special attention to was a wild one and probably weighed in at close to 18 lbs!!!

Now is a good time to head down and explore.
The Chum are starting to thin out, although they did not arrive in large numbers this year.

Be aware of private owners and their land rights. Even today, we were discussing what rights certain land owners had to the river banks and it seems it may have to do with when people purchased their homes.

Have fun out there.

Stave is mainly a chum fishery if thats what your looking for! Try the allouette it's your best bet!
Actually the stave has more coho then the Allouette right now. Yes it does have alot of chum but the coho numbers are better there.

Its only a chum fishery ::) I wish everyone thought this.... Barbelface the Stave is a great place to explore, There are great secrets that you will be able to unlock there, other than chum. Don't get me wrong the ditch aka Allouette also fishes well under the right circumstances. Its all about getting out there and working hard for your fish. They do not come easy in the Ridge like they do on the larger flows farther east.

:cheers: sage

Also unless you know the area around Maple Ridge the fishing can be really tough. The fishing on the stave is far easier as you can park in the parking lot by the dam on the east side and walk the river. Then you can Park by the dam on the west and explore that side with out even getting in and out of your car. Like sage said the stave is nice to explore and much easier to fish.

Ok then go back to my original post where it says get a map theres a few really good rivers to fish and IMO the stave is not one of them! Do a little exploring on your own and let us know what you find! Thats the best part about fishing is finding your own lil scret spot! Stave is hard to fish for coho's unless you sit at the toilet bowl all day casting spoons, chum everywhere if thats what you want then the stave is right for you! Drift fishing the stave is tough without constant hook ups with half smoked chum ripping apart your gear! I'm sorry did you mention what type of fishing you were doing? Drifting, casting?

oh man i remember when the only way to find fishing spots was too giver for 8-10 hours on a flow and hope to figure it out for the next time you go there,and this was not that long ago as i am only 33. ck is right get a map find some kind of road access and go from there. i would think one is missing out on some really great water because they do not want to do a little work for their fish.dont allways go with what everyone else is doing you might just have a good time doing it.

Thanks for all the replies folks :) Didn't want to open up a can of worms regarding which is a better fishery than another but all your input is worthwhile. I'll be checking out both the Stave and Allouette and of course I'll map what areas I find better for drifting.
