Went fishing

Postby Oly 22 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 2:39 pm

Was able to go fishing out of Bamfield, off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Didn't have a snorkel, on the Pathy so had to take a boat. :D

Wow! Nice salmons :D

We took the truck to BC as well, but got by without a snorkel. Our fishing was a bit different too:

Doing this:

to catch this:

Youngest drowning worms for rainbows (stocked, so we ate those)

I actually bought a salmon tag for the Vedder River, but had to leave the day the run was starting :cry:

We'll have to plan more carefully next time.

Thanks! No, that Cutthroat came from a creek near Fernie. Not exactly road trip related, but I discovered a river near me which had a batch of brown trout released in the 80's. They are apparently thriving:

Going back (barbless flies and catch and release only)

Landed a 30" male there last week, only to discover the camera batteries were dead, lol.

I've heard many great things about the Tyee Lodge! Some day...

I really like it around Fernie, I am there three to four times a year, on my way to the mines. Never stopped to fish, but might have now. :D

One more Brown for the official "fishing" thread:

Hit a surface "popper". I guess nobody told the trout that it's a bass fly .:roll:
Caught a couple more once darkness set in. Before that happened the place looked like this: Image
