Hey yal

Any details on stream height and bites or catches for December fish, Steelhead or Chinook. Very warm today (above 10C in Burnaby) Wierd weather happening. If this keeps up who knows. Any tips on Steelhead in the Allouete River would be appreciated.
Thanks,

the alouette is best fished as it drops and clears.i have caught steelhead in there before christmas in the top end.roe single eggs and garden worms(not dew worms)have worked for me in the past.it only takes a few hours to clear good luck

as stick finger said, best when the water rises, then drops to clear conditions. i use 6lb. leader with a colorado blade and cast into the upper pools of the alouette. hooked 4 and landed 2 in one outing. 15lb. wild buck, and 7lb. wild buck
ditto

Is it only wild Steelhead in the Alouette or are there any hatcheries there? When you are talking about the upper pools, how far up are you talking, up past Maple Ridge Park, or just above 216 where it gets out of the dykes?
Coho Cody

secret. cant say. and yes there are hatchery steelhead in the alouette.

Does anyone know of car access to fishing the upper pools of the Alouette river. Or any good spots for that matter.Thinking somewhere in or around Maple Ridge. or close to Golden Ears park.
Thanks!

There are a number of spots, pull out a map and hit some of the dead end streets for river acess, spend some time walking or hiking around the area, get to know the river.

No fun in knowing what rock to stand on in any river, much more fun on finding a good spot and figureing it out on your own.

Thank's fishon. That's all part of the fun, I aggree.
Just not to familiar with access via Maple Ridge streets but I'll be checking out some maps.

How's the Steehead fishing been this year? I'm new to fishing for Stealhead and was wondering what rivers might be best to try...I like the Capilano, but not sure if I should fish it or not because I was told that there aren't too many in the Cap...what about the Vedder? And is this time of year the best time to fish Steelhead? Like are they most abundant/active in the Winter? Any kind of feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

you should check out the fishing reports in fishing with rod, chris gadsden does some good steelhead reports and daily vedder condition updates for people. www.fishingwithrod.com/yabbse

yeah KB, right now its the winter run of Steel. There's two runs: Winter and Summer. Summer ones are more succeptable to the dry flies, but right now, its the winter run. The Stamp, Vedder, and Squamish rivers are all worth a try. I'd leave the Cap alone for steelhead though. There are a few in there, but thats it; a few.
