I have just moved to Vancouver from Melbourne Australia and keen to go fishing. I normally fish off Port Phillip Bay or along the Murray River.
Cant really afford to go on a fishing charter just yet.
Can anyone suggest places I could try fishing by myself - fresh or salt. And what I should use.
Was also keen to try ice-fishing if there was somewhere around I could do it.

Or even point me towards a useful website...
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Just click the Trip Planner:
http://www.sharphooks.com/tripplanner.aspx

and you can filter fishing spots by destination, access, and even type of fish you are interested in. For every Spot you can check detailed Fishing Reports (specific with maps, attractors and comments), photos, directions, and bathy charts.

only other good forum i know of seems to be closed. this site is great but seems to have lost interest so not alot of updated info is on here. but when i was learniong to fish this area sharphooks was a very good base to start for finding fishing spots based on species and shows great lake maps

I just went ice fishing yesterday at Mamit Lake near Merritt.
It is only about 40 minutes north of Merritt, between Merritt and Logan Lake. First time I went ice fishing, and it was fun. Only caught 1 sucker, but some others had good luck with some rainbow trout being brought in.
Mamit Lake is right on the highway, and the ice is around 2 feet thick, so you can drive right on to the ice. Dress warm, and make sure that you have some windproof clothing.
