Dam is shut off, they're doing fish habitat reconstruction stuff, Water is super low, I've been snorkelling down there and getting a whole hoard of gear :D While snorkeling I've seen a ton of HUGE suckers, lots of white fish, and a few trout/juvenile salmon.

Yes I was down there twice this past week looking for early springs and chum, I was catching them there in early september last year. I'm hoping there will be some next week, I'll let you know if I see any. I did see a couple largemouths in there when I was snorkeling though, a few of them were pretty big. I tried to catch them, but I could only get them to follow my offerings to the shore. Maybe next time.

The Stave is VERY quiet right now. If it keeps raining and the temperature of the rivers continue to drop, then the fish will start to arrive....The Stave always has a few fish around but the bulk of the coho and chum are still a few weeks away.....All systems are awaiting the BIG RAIN!!.........Then look out!....Ortho 8)

Will be at the Stave on Sunday to search for some early Ho's and chum. Planning on bringing the canoe to explore the islands down from the toilet bowl. That will be great to get away from the Gong show that will be starting very shortly.
