The coquitlam river has no good fishing. It used to, but pollution from some up stream quarries has resulted in that stream becoming almost sterile except for the small runs of hatchery fish that are released every. Try spin casting in the fraser when the fish are in thick.

i wouldnt waste my time... too much crap has been pumped into the river from the gravel quarries upriver...

go lake fishing...

I talked to a few people and apparently the bows' and cutties are doing well in the lower parts. Isn't there a coho run up there every year??
The Yak

no coho but there is a chum run every year... I think the chum run is going to be quite light after the incredible amount of rain we had last november. it probably washed most of the chum eggs down stream... SO catch and release is in order here...
