Hello!!

I wanted to take my nephew fishing. He is from Alberta so I thought I would *TRY* to show him what fishing would be like here. I've NEVER fish before so I dont even know where to begin.

I need new fishing rods. Someone at canadian tire recomended me to get cork handle. I want to spend about 20-40 per rod. I want it for variety of fish type. I need bait or whatever needed to be used to catch fish so if you know any good ones that are good for any type of fish.


also last but not least. I need a good location that is anywhere from 30 minutes to and hour from the lower mainland. not too much hiking either please!!


Please help me make his first fishing experiance enjoyable and smoothly as possible!!



Thank you!!

If you are looking for entry level gear at a good price check out Army and Navy in Langley. I am NOT saying don't go to independant fishing stores but to start A&N offers good deals at fair prices. The staff will be more than happy to assist you to get you started on the right foot. If you have a boat hit Alouette nice and simple trolling for Kokanee.If you have to shore fish there is a little gem about 20 mins north of Squamish called Deadmans lake that the bows are suckers for bait on bottom or small spinners. The lake will take a bit of research to find but worth the effort. Cheers.

Just try Mill lake. The fish aren't big, but there are fish in it, and it has been picking up. I wouldn't eat the fish from it though. Just yeah, Canadian tire or Army and Navy will have entry level rods for a good price. Trout and bass are the only thing really that are fishable on the same rod (i wouldn't go for salmon) and they can be found easily within the lower mainland. Mill you can fish from the dock. Just make it simple (#10 hook with a couple splitshot, a bobber and some bait). Good baits are worms, deli shrimp or corn. All easily bought. Just cast, let it chill and have a beer (or pop) with him.

The lake the CT guy is referring to is most likly Brohm lake and yes that one is right off the highway about 10 mins past Squamish. The trafic is a pain but there are lots of small bows and cutts.

Oh Jeez ... 18.

You really want to impress him don't buy gear ... take him on a salmon charter out of Campbell River (they supply the gear).

If you go mid-week the rates are really not too bad. The experience will be like nothing he has ever had.

actually, if you want to impress him, take him to the no.5 orange.
it'll still smell like you were fishing too.
