Nov 16 2007 - Squamish was full of chum. They were all fresh and clean too. 3 of us each had 12 landed and hooked and lost more... Fish was willing to bite, and only a few was colored. Choice of wool was bright green. And 2 wild coho were caught by one of my friend.



Nov 19 2007 - Squamish again. This time with my little 7 year old girl. Condition was bad. Snowing hard, water was super low, and fish were shy. Though she hooked one and played with it for a little then line snap. We ended up finding lots of beautiful flies for her collection...

One note, please remember to use barbless hook. We picked up a few barbed hooks - some with wool, some were flies...

Nov 23 2007 - Vedder. Goal is to explore for possible Steelhead locations. But our first stop was full of surprised. Clean chums, lots of Coho; both clean and red. Between my friend and I, we landed 3 coho each, and lost 3-4 fish per person. All wild except 1 red hatchery coho. We lost some bright silver coho near shore too... Amazing to see some were still in such nice condtion. And the chums were nice and silver as well... We ended up staying there without much exploring... It is my friend's first fish on his new CP so he is quite happy of today's trip.

Great point about pinching barbs as well...it seems way too often anglers seem to be afraid to pinch them because they think they are going to lose their fish...This is not the case!

Pinch your barbs people!!! Nice report Charles...

There are still fish out there. My friend just called me at 10am and he is fishing today 24th of Nov..

"we landed 4 coho chrome this morning 1 hatchery, and lost some (hook pop). Chums are still around with both dirty and some clean (our clean chum = silver and barely any bars)". Basically, same story of what happened to my friend and I yesterday.

Ok... There is no secret to it. go upper river, walk your way down. Spend around 15-30 minutes per spot. If you find fish, there will be more there. I was using blade (too cold and messy for me to use roe), friends were using roes... And the one catching them today are using roes.

That is a great chum for the Vedder. Well done! :cheers:

my dad and I were out last saturday and thought the guy across the river got a coho until we crossed to check it out. turned out to be a super clean chum!!!! we couldnt believe it, it was even chromer than that one. sure would be nice to get them in there like that every year and then pull out the fly gear.
