You guys gotta get out there for the sea-runs. I'll post the pics later, but yeah, just nymphing with a '52 Buick resulted in some awesome action on the little feeder creeks that feed into the chuck.

Yeah, you can get them on the little feeder creeks or any back slough really, as long as its not like, a ditch. It should connect directly to the Fraze in someway or another, and should be affected by the tides.

That is a beautiful fish by the way. My biggest one so far is 13". It put a good bend in my 8wt rod too. I usually use a 5/6wt for them, but there were Coho splashing around, same as today actually, and I didnt want to risk hooking into one on such a light rod. Found one today (Sea-run) that was just chilling in this hold, sipping something- or syphoning something, couldnt really see whatever it was that it was going after) and tried sighting to it for a while until it eventually moved away. Looked to be about two pounds though. Ahhh, its getting hot for fishing, but too too damn cold for the hands!

Here are some pics of the Sea-Run Cutthroat, as well as a couple small resident rainbows. Unfortunately I can't tell you this place, as you can see it is a very small place and would get rediculously crowded. It really can only hold three people.

Yeah, I've been trying for them by my place, but havent had much luck, I'mn pretty sure they're there, just haven't managed to land one, I'm gonna give your fly of choice a go tonight, the '52 Buick, what do you think about an egg sucking leech?

Second last pic, good job on dangling the wild trout by its gillplate.

That was a rainbow, and I kept it. I released all the sea-run cutts. I kept one rainbow out of the 9 other cutthroat.
As for the egg sucking leach, maybe. Sea runs are very wierd fish for me. They will chase down a fly presented very fast, and then the next thing you know you have to switch it up and just nymph for them. For nymphs, I swear by the '52 Buick, but for streamers, a Rolled Mudler is deadly, as are small streamers. If casting streamers, use a medium sized fly (8/9) and cast it as far as you can, then strip strip strip it to hell, followed by a short pause. Then keep stripping. You might find the fish are hitting short on it. If this is the case, use a smaller fly. If nymphing with the '52 Buick, cast upstream a bit, mending as neccesary, but ever now and again, give it a twitch while its drifting. If you sea your indicator or end of your flyline pause or bob, strip strike. If your line twitches, dont strike just yet, give it a short (1-2 inche tug) then let it drift again. Whats probably happening is smaller fish are dicking with it and like, "nibbling" it. But yeah, strip-strike the nymph cause if the fish doesnt have it, it will still generally be in its strike zone. If you lift, you pull it out of the zone. Thats about it for sea-run cutties. They are agressive, and usually make their presence known. They most always travel in schools too, so if you find one, you'll probs find more.

Hey louis nice pics,I'm pretty sure I know where you were at there,but don't worry I won't say,I dont fly fish , but not for a lack of trying (just can't get the hang of it ) When I cought that Sea Run I was float fishing with a worm,Using my light weight gear ,4lb and a short little 5 foot spinning rod. It sure cought me by surprise though, we were ther just before dinner and all we were catching were pumpkin seeds and then whamo there it was.

I wonder if Beak007 and IeatFISHraw are Buddy's(If ya know what I meen)

Where abouts did you get that Cutty, if you don't mind my asking. I love going for Sea Runs, and am always looking for new spots. Where I caught those ones, there aren't any pumpkinseeds, so we probs werent at the same spot. This place only has Sea Runs, resident cutties and rainbows, as well as the 'hoes when they run. Sea Runs give a good fight for their size, so I could imagine the fight it gave.
Tavin02

Hey Louis, Your spot for mine?
Louis Vuitton

Fair enough. Email me at sunsets_with_her@hotmail.com

LV-Is it worth trying the creeks in North Van and West Van.? They seem to be low this year. Restless
bcguy

Didn't have any luck last night,
what does anyone think about the Fort Langley area for Sea run Cutthroat?
Louis Vuitton

Try the creeks and the mouts of them. As long as there it connects to the salt, there should be a few hanging around.
Louis Vuitton

Fort Langley, Whiterock, Mudbay, that whole area is good. Cresent beach is good too. Just find a feeder creek or stream that connects to Mud Bay there and you should be able to find a few. But don't get discouraged. Sea-runs are bitchy little fish, but I love them, ha! You'll find a school of ten one day and have a hey-day, then tomorrow, at the same time, there won't be a single one there. Very elusive.

The cutties are very fun fish to catch.

Hey Louis. You should post some of the pics of the regular sized rainbows we catch at that spot
Louis Vuitton

Is this Winston?
tonyparsons

yah
fish"n feind

I always thought sea run cutthroat were over 4lbs i think those little guys are just residents
Louis Vuitton

Dude, if I caught a 4lb sea-run, i'd shit myself. Most sea-runs average about 14-18''.
Tavin02

If you look back to the first page of this thread,and look at the pic of mine you'll see the difference between resident and sea -run cutthroat,(see the yellow on the gill plate and the tail) Thats how you can tell.
And ya LV,Id shit myself too if I hook into a 4 pound Sea-Run
Louis Vuitton

Another good factor for sea-runs and rez's is that sea-runs are all silver along the sides, with a more light bronzey colour on the more top part of their bodies (not to be confused with the forward part) with a tonne of spots, a REALLY prominant orangy-red slash and the yellow fins.

Cheers

L.V. The pic where you are holding the rainbow by the gill plate I can see an adipose fin. You state that you kept it! The regs state you must RELEASE all wild trout/char from streams or sloughs except streams that flow into tidal waters north of and including Jervis Inlet. These are the regs for region 2, perhaps you should read them and obey them.

I agree barfisher. I was wondering about that myself....
