Author Topic: summer trout

Hey does anybody know a good river for that offers good fly fishing in the summer time where you can camp? Iv researched the skagit river and that looks pretty good but are there any other options?

Jackie , if u`ve done research on Skagit river - before even getting to exit 168 on highway 1 - there is 1 more lake just before it , it calls "jones lake" . "silver lake" on ur way to it , and ross lake close by ( u can fish Skagit only from 26mile bridge and to the ross lake ) its about 10km drive to the lake from 26miles . but u need to remember that silver,skagit are single barbless hook , bait ban , catch and release only .ross lake the same but u can keep 3 trouts over 33cm . also if u wanna camp , I can tell u free spot and no fireban . u can email me .

by the way if u still wanna hit Skagit - check weather before u go , last weekend was brutal in that area , Skagit was ranging on Saturday (brown water) , I left around 10am on sunday and water was almost clear ... keep in mind rains .

There is a fire ban in the whole province.

The Chwk/Vedder has lots of eager trout (aka residualized steelhead). They aren't big ( a big un is 10") however they are plentiful, eager, and not shy.

bckid, no there is not a fire-ban province wide. only select areas are still on bans.

vedder/Chilliwack is ranging now.... + more rain is coming , wouldn't even bother with flyfishing in it with this conditions .

Try fishing one of these local rivers in the lower mainland with a dry fly. Pinners galore, but a lot of fun and eventful. Realistically I should of brought the bait caster though lol, just love catching fish on the floating line with a dry fly.

Thanks Alex for all your help.
What's your email so I can contact you for the campsite?
