i had a good look at the estuary and lower river a couple days ago and didn't see a single fish - which is not to say there are not some fish around. the river is extremely low and i'm guessing it will be a week or two before the pinks roll in in big numbers.

There have been some pinks moving in and out with the tides for a week or so now, no big numbers really but they are around. As Dinsdale said, a week or two and the action should get consistent...

yes they are in the mouth, and right where the fresh water meets the salt water, you can see them bombing around in the high tide. and shooting up the shallows. the lower pool i mean is the one in the most lower part of the fresh water river, at the seymour heritage park. also now there are fish at the next pool too, the one just like a hundred yards from the parking area.

hope this helps.
cheers :beerchug:

I was out their last night. 2 people fly fishing below the train bridge I watched for 30 min and no action.

Tried myself just above the dollarton and no action their either. I did see one pink swimming around in the pool right by the park. ??

was out today right on high tide.. 1st time since the early coho run on the cap. as a result my vest was not quite up to scratch. no pliers meant no ability to crip the barbs on the flies I had brought :wallbash:. So instead I plunked pink wool and then pink wool and a Jensen egg. I fished the first run above dollarton and then made my way up to Riverside drive. Saw about 7 other people fly fishing/spoon chucking and plunking all to no avail. saw 1 rise in the pool by the parking lot. other than that, a lovely day to be out. I also have a list of things I need for the vest ;) ::)

I think even DFO has realized this pink run isn't going to be what we hoped for :'( They recently reduced the run size estimate to 10 million fish. Having said that I looked at the test sets back to 99 and I think this years run is going to be similar to 05. But here's hopin its just late :cheers:
