I would like to personally thank every one of you that helped out in any way last year with all the events that were hosted. Obviously too many names to mention, so a big shout out ;) :)


Ok then... Weaver doesn't look so good  :-[

Whonnock would be my other vote, anything but Buntzen ;D


Well... considering we are just back from the NALS in the interior my choice for a local venue would be Weaver lake. It has a boat launch, is a decent size lake and plenty of fish in it. I know Chris fished it last spring maybe he could let us know if it is a viable venue and meets our needs.


30 days :o ::)


All good points Johny, and thanks for sharing your take on it. Believe me, I'm all for exploring, but I guess what I'm missing here is "why" the two week no fishing. How will that make things more fair for out of town competitors?  Also, when you refer to numbers do you mean more new anglers joining and competing? If that's the case, I think extending no fishing periods may discourage new comers. Anglers like myself joined because they love getting out there and hitting the water.  Telling interested anglers you can't fish a system for two weeks seems a little backwards to me.

Anyway, with all that said above I don't mean to be difficult and start arguements. Simply sharing my thoughts on it, and perhaps my lack of understanding on the new rule. If this is the new norm, then so be it. Either way I'm in.. And yes Johny, let's totally go steelheading hunting this early Spring. That sounds like a blast :)

Cheers! StantonifIhadadollarforeverytimesomeonecalledmeJack

Sounds good Jack! Now we gotta straighten out this Stanton guy ;D ;D


I am also a steelheader too. Two weeks is not a huge deal to me. There are many steelheading opportunities out there and this means you just have to fish other system's for that short period. For the March comp on the Stave that is prime time on the Vedder and every other flow in the lower mainland. Spend those two weeks exploring. And for the April comp on the Chilliwack, we know the beats so stay below those and have some fun. There are chrome aggressive bullets that will come in late on that river and some of the best fly water is below the crossing anyway so why not take advantage? I know I do! ;) :)

I would like to give it a try and see if it helps the #'s or not.

Jack I would love to spend some time fishing with you during those periods if you like. I have been chasing steel for over 25 years and if you want to break out the gear too and I am all good with that! :D


Who's spin and who's glo?  Lol.

Well now the answer to your question

Gordy put a spin on things that day and I got to glo in the aftermath. ;D ;D


A big shout out to my good friend and partner for the day Gordy Dykstra for finishing top of the class yesterday. He was feeling it and stuck with gut saying we should go back there, try here, let's try that again. When he is in the mode I never question, I just do, and it really worked out well for both of us  ;)

Thanks for the good day Gord and congrats on your first win!


It was nice to meet you Stephen. That was a cool, hard days fishin' yesterday but it was nice to see everyone having some laughs and enjoying each other's company at the launch, lunchtime and on the water. :)

I agree... those fish were not happy


Callum and I are the ;



Side by side bro! Let the games begin ;D


Tina and I will be there  :)


Congrats to everyone. Some good #'s caught for sure!

 One day I will make it east for this one  ;)
