the thompson is closed.the vedder should be good.the stamp and the gold should be good.catch and release on the gold only. the returns were not that great on the gold last year but its one of the rivers you have to fish.you need a jet boat to access the stamp and upper pitt

Catch and Realease is the only way to fish.

I'm leaning towards going to the island. Any good rivers that can be walked? Mid or upper island?

Not sure where it is on the Island, but the Stamp is good for Steel.

Ya, if I had $1,500 to go fishing for a week I'd be in Mexico drinkin tequila.

if you have a boat go up there yourself. you dont have to stay at the lodge you know.

Better yet... if you have a boat bring a bike with you too and then it makes it easier to access the upper reaches without a sh*t load of walking.

I'm guessing you need a jet to get up the pit. Is there anywhere to dock in the estuary?

thanks for the repy, but I started this post in 2006. I've landed 8 steels since then. Tip Up!
