Its the end of the season for me. There is still lots of pinks and a friend landed last night landed two very fresh ones. He caught his limit and the hot colour was green. For me its time to hunt for the big boys (springs). The season was fantastic having my kids fish with me and watching my daughter and friend who have never ca [...]
The sockeye fishing has been awesome! Fish the ebb tide from Sandheads to the North Arm. Use false flashers and short leaders and when you hit the schools the rods go off and like Webber posted lots of double and some triple headers -- two nets can be helpfu! It does go quiet at times and sometimes the schools are hard to find but o [...]

Hey nice pattern! Definitely looks like a needlefish. It will be interesting to see how it swims in the water. I tried a shellback tail on a fly once and it was twisting up in the water. For coho off the ECVI beaches, the best fly for me has been a green california neal. Its a very simple pattern and its small (size 6-8). Ive [...]

So incase you're curious.. don't bother making a trip out there.'' It isn't river fishing, but I fished the Nile Creek are [...]

We went out yesterday morning for almost 6 hours and of the 100 boats fishing the harbour we saw one fish get netted. We went out again tonight for 2.5 hours and there were a couple of dozen boats fishing the harbour and nothing. Last weekend (Aug 16th and 17th we caught 4 chinook). One guy told us last night (at the wharf) that [...]

Very cool! I knew little about these creatures prior. I think I would just cut my line if I caught one of these. No doubt they would be capable of jumping out of the water into a small boat. The attacks on those salmon remind me of the epic nat geo footage of great whites hitting sea lions on the surface from below:):)
