Author Topic: Cheakamus river

Hey...hopefully this goes better than my last post.

Any of you have advice for flyfishing the cheakamus? I hear its better than the squamish for year round fishing and I'd like to go to target some dollys or rainbows.

Areas/access/campin/time of year... info anyone has would be awesome.

Now is a good time of year as well as the fall sfter the slamon spawn, they will be even crazier in the fall though but hey yuo will do fine even now. It'll be pretty high but i think as far as patterns go muddlers sculpin patterns and fry. fry i think would wor best but not egg and eye. epoxy minnows/fry would also work well. just fish the hole that is in front of a first nation log cabin, it is called the smokehouse and at this time of year they tend to be stacked there. They also will be in the really slack water about 200 yards away from this hole, along the whole run. They will be follwing fry so you should retrive your fry or muddler or sculpin pattern at medium speed and try to make it seem like it's injured by either tying it on upside down or with a duncans loop.basically the cheak will be pretty coloured lets just hope its the tea stain colour that everyone likes. Now for parking and acess. you will come across a one way bridge down the road, and before that stick to the right and you should pass sea wolf recreational site. After you pass the one way bridge just park in the space and start to make your way down.the smokehouse won't be for awhile. You do need waders to fish this place properly! No waders no fish basically. A plce that would be good to try is the mouth of the first feeder ctreek. It's the hatchery creek and it is basically where their food comes from so they are usually a few there. Just try not to spook them and do your best at sneaking in on them.
Good luck to you and be sure to tell us how it goes

right on, I'll keep that in mind. I read bears are a problem there- or just blown out of proportion? I'm from the interior so I've had bears lookin into my kitchen while making breakfast! but wondering if they are bad enough there to invest in a bear scare or spray?

I think that's all. I want to try this week but the weather doesn't look like it will hold up. Gotta find a fishin buddy too

bears wont be that much of a problem but there will still be quite a few, nothing like around the skeena system.
