CHILLIWACK/VEDDER RIVER - Water levels are super low, clarity is very clear and there is no color what so ever, gin clear. We had some rain over night but had little or no effect on the rivers levels or color! Yesterday we had 2 fish weighted into the derby but heard lots of the usual stories. There are lots of fish in the river, so get out the while the getting is still good! There is now 301 fish weighted into the Wally Hall Derby. Right now the wind is calm, air temperature 8 °C, Friday night, High 12 °C with showers. Today Sunrise 6:02 Sunset 18:26 Moonrise 4:12 Moonset 12:05. Today's high tide is at 2:24am @ 14.1 ft and today's low tide is at 8:10am @ 11.8 ft and high tide again at 10.57am @ 12.1 ft , remember to add five hours to get the the tide here in the valley. Cutthroat are now starting to show themselves in the canal as the air temperature starts to rise, the water temperature will follow. Minnow are now hatching the the cutts are feeding!

FRASER RIVER - The Fraser river is low and clear and is in prime shape for fishing cutts. Their has been some fry starting hatch as the water has been warming up in the afternoon with the higher temperatures in the day. March is a great time to be fishing cutts on the Fraser, side channels, tail outs are good areas to find these fish, remember you have to release all wild Cutthroat Trout! Blue Ridge has been quite good of late and you can't go wrong anywhere around herling Island, the mouth of the Harrison or around the mouth of Maria. Minnow patterns, small wooly buggars, tiny stone nymphs and little stone emergers are good bets for this time of year! As April approaches you will want primarily fish minnow patterns as the minnow hatch will be happening. The Sturgeon fishing has been good with success almost assured. Fish in the six to seven foot range have been caught daily by anglers on our fishing charters.

HARRISON RIVER - The Harrison River is now starting to pick up for Cutthroat trout. As the weather and water temperature starts to get warmer the fry will start hatching, as is has now started. Remember, all wild Cutthroat trout must be released unharmed! There are a few Steelhead passing through the Harrison on the way to their destination river. This would be a very pleasant surprise to hook one of these chrome beauties while fishing cutthroat trout.

CHEHALIS RIVER - Water levels are very low and clear and fishing has been decent up in the canyon, fish are starting to color up and are very spooky. Fishing is slow in the new lower sections of the river due to the extreme low water levels in the Harrison and the the Chehalis . With the water being so low don't expect much in the river till we get a bunch of rain to move in some new fish.

THOMPSON RIVER - The Thompson is now closed till June 1, 2006. It was a great year on the Tee, lots of fish caught but haven't heard the final numbers of fish that made it back to spawn, as soon as we find out those number we will let you know.

SKAJIT RIVER - Opens July 1, 2006.
