Does anyone know the water level at Kilby how high or how low the water is


Thanks for the quick response, just was wondering as I will start going out there mid August.

Are you a fly fisherman, yourself

Usually fish the fraser, but want to give the Harrison a shot, can you find a bar and float fish come September?
I have a 9.9 hp and a 12 ft aluminum.

Probably some jigs? spoons? maybe roe(will have to check regs on that). Is it productive?

I've seen quite a few videos of people twitching jigs, looks like a great and exciting way to fish, but you would do that from a boat I would assume. From the launch, I know the water is very lake like, not much current, and I would go from there towards the bridge and find a bar?

will give it a go this season for sure, May try casting some spoons and jigs from shore. Thanks for the advice.

I have just started getting into fly fishing still not sure of all of it, but want to try it on the Harrison in mid august to early September and giv it a go.

All I was told is use pink flies

Good start, its a great place to fly fish, if you can find some room.

Mike, I think the person who told you to use pink flies was referring to when the pinks run. Try your pink flies next year. right now I think minnow patterns would be an option.

pink/purple flies would still work for chum, coho, and even springs.

Dump, have you compared twitching jigs against short floating them? Do you feel the direct method to be more productive or is it dependent on where i.e. the type of water you are fishing?

I have found short floating jigs to be a great way to catch Chum and coho on the Squamish in in 2-4 feet of water. I guess you would need deeper water for twitching?


Nice, thanks dump, I'll give it a go. Always fun to try and learn new techniques.

dump , take me fishing :D

Appreciate the offer Dump. I watched Bent Rods video on twitching jigs and it looks fairly straightforward.

Once I lose a few on the bottom, I'll probably get the hang of it. I have tied myself a bunch of steel, coho, chum and Chinook jigs, using Bent Rods kits so I have plenty to lose and I am looking forward to giving this a go.

Do you prefer a spinning reel or have you found a level wind to be ok?

Thanks for the suggestion.

PS, I see you mentioned light gear. Medium or light/medium action in the 10-15 lbs range?

dump I can drive u know
and from I remember u like silence . so I don't see how u grumpiness will affect taking me fishing with u :D

always a good way to sort the men from the boys.....

dump sounds good I always like early fishing )
