How's it going reel angler? Sorry we missed you at the Roche Lake gathering.

I would plan for a week in mid to late August and hit the Kitimat or Skeena tributary systems with the fly rod, for salmon and summer run steelhead. I would try something new as opposed to going to an old reliable spot as life is too short to not experience new things.

from what i have read (online) you can wake and wade a good portion of the St. Mary's whereas the Elk is said to be better fished by drifting the river in a boat or pontoon :thumbup:

Prof. can of course give you better advise because he fishes this area yearly :thumbup: (lucky bastard) :peace:

I agree with Prof. seeing as he said it first :beerchug: thats where i would be headed if i had a week off :thumbup:
I just happen to be going to all those rivers on Saturday, for a week... Very excited!!!

My spot, the Dean, as it's been on my life long places to go list... Hopefully its going to happen 2010.

My favourite...the Kispiox..... where I might get to on the last weekend in July, perfect timing.
I was there a few years ago and have always wanted a return trip.

If I only had a week it would probably be the East Koots as others have suggested.

If I had a month it would be up around Terrace, a week is too short and would be frustrating trying to get in there for that. The Whitehourse area is also sick in early june when the grayling are hungry and the pike are in the shallow bays. Once again for that a week is not enough.

If I had a time machine I would be standing at the graveyard waking dries over the worlds finest steelhead

Killbella and Chuckwalla Rivers
Yep :beerchug: I would also have to add the Dean, Coquihalla and Thompson rivers for some dry fly steelhead action. Like the age old adage explains. When the steelhead takes the fly off the surface hold back on the hook set and say the old saying of "God save the Queen" then set the hook and hold on. :cheers: sage

Sustut and Johanson Lakes and the rest of the upper Sustut River area before the closure took place. Some of the most beautiful steelie water I have seen.

Give me any quiet trout stream with no one around and I'd be happy. :)
That or any lake in the middle of nowhere surrounded by forest, (still green, not pine beetle infested!) in the middle of a mayfly hatch! :peace:
I really enjoy hiking into the upper Skagit area from Sumallo Grove with a rod and lunch on my back. I've only done this once with a friend but it was a great experience.
