Hey, nice new look. Ive been trying to join for a while bot it kept saying something about spambot. Great to be part of the site. Anyhow does anyone know where i can get to some good winter fishing. Either trout or steelhead. I would love to find out some info about a steelhead run at any greater vancouver river. Thanks for anyone with the time to answer.

Welcome to the forum masterangler. There are virtually too many lakes and streams to list
in one go. Even if you weren't from the region you should be able to figure out whats going
on with little effort. That said,get yourself a backroads mapbook ,have a look around and
get acquainted with our local tackle shops. Right now you are looking at the Chehallish and
the Vedder for well known steelies and as far as bows goes well like I said,pick one,it all
depends on where you want to go and enjoy this natural resource.
Hope I've helped, keep in touch....Marko.... ;D

Welcome masterangler,,, :) :) :)

Its just the beginning of Steelhead season in the lower mainland, the best bet for you to run into Steelhead is probably the Vedder right now. Its easily accessed and has a good reputation for producing Steelies. Also you may find some trout in there as well.

I posted the map of the Vedder here - http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q261/steely_crazy/maps-vedder_river_salmon_jpg.jpg - although since that map was published we had the big flood and the rivers slightly changed. However its enough to get started and get you there.

Check out the local tackle shops around the Vedder, they have a wealth of knowledge and also Freds has a winter steelheading course which is excellent if you havent fished for steelhead before.

http://www.fredscustomtackle.com/ - they are right beside the river basically.

http://www.reactionbaits.com/ - not quite at the river but close.

I havent done a lot of lake fishing for trout but I hear there are some great lakes close to the city which are stocked, again the tackle shops can help with locations.

Good luck.

Green Timbers lake in Surrey and Bunzen in Coquitlam are both easy to access and have good fishing for stocked Rainbow Trout.

Good Luck
