Sure it is nice to see Salmon Porn along with Steelhead Porn.

But what about some of the other fish that we might hook in or local rivers!!!!!

Here is a Sculpin from yesterday


This is a small one I have hooked some close to 8" before!

I caught one of those a few years back at the mouth of the cap tossing spoons. it was probably like 2lbs and came in with its mouth wide open so i thought i had a rock or something LOL I wasnt sure what it was exactly but figured it was a sculpin and know i have this to reassure me ;D

Hook,

If in the salt water part of the Cap that would be a BullHead!

Now not up but I dont think that Sculpin's go out to sea? But I could be wrong as most of them are tinny little SOB

well it looked exactly like that little guy and was right by the bridge when the tide was dead low. maybe a bullhead but it just looked wrong as i have caught salt water bullhead before off the dock in Whiterock ;D

To clarify guys...Bullheads, as far as I know and have seen, are capable of living in fresh or salt water. I have caught them in the salt at close to 4-5 lbs! Cool pic!

That's what those little guys are!! This summer I was over in Tofino and camped for a couple of days on Kennedy Lake. I had one fiesty little guy who kept on nibbling on my toes while I was swimming. We found a nice beach which obviously used to be some sort of loggging dump as there was tonnes of wood chips, scraps at the edge of the sand in waist deep water. I had two of these little guys nibblin' at my toes everytime as I was trying to have a quick rinse. It's like they hid with the camoflauge of the wood chips and were just waiting to "pounce" on the open sand as I neared the edge of the wood. It was like a little sculpin gang. :peace:

All I know is that Bull-trout love eating sculpins. In the past while releasing bull-trout they where regurgitating them up. Great pic slayer :cheers:

Nice fish! I fished the Jarvis and a few others up North this summer. My partner and I pulled quite a few grayling out of there, but no pike on the fly. I found a really cool spot at the outflow of a big lake whose name I've forgotten that gave up 14 to 18 inchers on almost every cast. They are really fun on the fly! I'll post some pictures too. ;D


Here is one from the West Coast.

Very cool ambler, not many guys have fished that little gem. I lived in a wildlife research camp that was a 10 minute bike ride from the Jarvis for 7months so I know it well.

The lake you are thinking of is Kloo Lake. The best pike spot on the Jarvis is just down stream from where it exits Kloo. Look for a big weedy bay on the left bank if you are facing down stream. Wade through the fast water on the right bank and cast anythig big and ugly into that bay. Hang on there are no huge ones in there but some pushing 10.

Try it next time you are in the area, you will be glad you did. Here is a picture that makes me smile. After a great day on the Jarvis I was fishing my pike spot with great success when this happened



A moose decided to wade right across the lake beside me, these are the type of things that turn a great day into a magical one.
