Just returned from fishing the last few hours of daylight on the Squamish just below where the Mamquam comes in. More and more fish showing up all the time. The water was in pretty good condition, a little higher than it has been the past few weeks but not close to where it has to be for the flood of fish to come in.

All the fish I saw, caught and saw caught were chum. That said, many were very fresh and guys were keeping them. I kept one beauty male about 14 pounds that had just had his purple bars faintly showing on the silver sides. To the smoker he will go!

The fish came in on the high tide at around 4:30 and for about 2.5 hours after that (until I couldn't see my fly in the air and had to cast by feel alone) there was lots of activity and not many guys - maybe 6 in the run below the Mamquam. Lots of holding fish too, in the deeper sections, and lots of travelling fish up further on the river that weren't interested at all what I was offering them. I didn't see any fish in that terrible dinosaur shape they get later in the season.

The guys fishing gear were hitting fish on pink wool only, in the deeper water. No coho though. All in all, a great night.

I used a few of the usual suspects for chum: egg-sucking leech, egg patterns, some purples. I found the best were the egg patterns in pink with some flash. The guys fishing gear were only getting them on pink wool.

today they were caught on hammered brass colorados, under float, pink #4 blue fox, and orange green and black croc, oh yeah, Ortho caught some on the fly, I believe with coho flies. ask Ortho about the one that got away. I think he has not posted yet because he's still with the therapist!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just an update on the day spent with Ogobogo.......We had some morning fun with some chum, with both of us landing a couple of nice fish. One doe landed by Ogobogo gave us some nice acrobatics...A side trip accross the channel to an island was a bit of an adventure, but it paid off with the first hookup on a coho this year n the squamish system..What a fish!! Yes, Ken I am still shaking my head over that one!!(and crying) :cry:
Before you fly boys get too excited, I did hook this fish on a small croc. on my gear.
After sandwiches and a few "Stella's" we did some exploring and this also paid some dividend in the form of a couple of nice trout in the 1-2lb range and 2 more cohos, one which did not stay on long enough for me to id, but the one brought to hand was a prime, wild buck, getting ready to spawn. Probably in the 12lb range or better that also fell for hardware in the form of a Vibraax spinner-blade............What a beautiful day out there!!
Thanks, Ogobogo for sharing the day. It was good to put another name to a face.
For those beginners out there (Ogobogo has only been fishing for 1 year) If you put in the research, the effort and the committment that this guy has done, your learning curve and success rate will reflect your hard work......Well done my friend....you'r a damn good rod for the short time you have spent on the water..........Now, we just gotta make sure ALL those stream crossings are as safe as the last one!. :wink: ....Cheers, Ortho 8)

thanks for the kind words Ortho. :oops: had a great time fishing with you yesterday. I think that our lives have run parallel, you're ahead on a couple of small details, but we wont go there , although I will catch up on my own! unfortunately, I cannot catch up on your experiences while angling. thanks so much for sharing, that's how we novices learn. :D hey Hotrod, no trips to the Stamp without me! maybe we should put together a group, and take over Murphy's. :D

Friday would be great for me except I'll be in the hospital having a hernia operation.So unfortunately I'll be out of commission for awhile.I won't be allowed tp lift anything over ten pounds and the way things have been going in the Squish I probably shouldn't go fishing. :lol: :lol: No but seroiusly I had a good day yesterday but before that I went nine day without a coho hook up. It was a rough go chums everywhere. I think it would cool to hook up sometime with ya! The doc says I won't be out that long maybe a few days of being laid up then on my feet again and coho runs late everywhere that;s perfect for me!............................Stamp.................steelhead?
