so here it is, i have never really fished as an adult and my total experience to date amounts to maybe 12 hours 1 or 2 hours at a time all before i was 10 years old. recently i decided to take up fishing again as i am an avid outdoors-men.i have spent the last month or so searching the internet reading how to articles and other info and have become a little over whelmed by it all that is until i found this site. i have been given some lures from a friend of mine that fished a bit a couple of years ago but decided it wasn't for him and recently purchased a decently priced rod and reel combo from canadian tire. what i was hoping for was some suggestions on how to fish what to use my first couple trips out since i am from coquitlam and live maybe 5 mins away from como lake i have decided to start there what tips and tricks can you guys give me?

For now, just persistence. Get your feet wet, chuck a few lures and keep building on that. You are doing your research and that is a great start, now try some of the things you have read. If you know someone who fishes, ask them to join you and keep both ears open...

I have no idea about fishing places in coquitlam but I'm guessing the lakes there have trout. My tips would be if you're using a lure for trout.. add a worm at the end. I haven't caught any trout on a lure unless I had a worm on from my experience. And look for people that are catching fish and see their methods.

Also for the future you might be interested in salmon fishing during the summer and fall. August is sockeye and for that you might have to travel pretty far up the Fraser to bottom bounce and might need a fairly large rod. September is pinks but they won't come until 2013 and when they do you can catch them easily anywhere in the Fraser and it's lots of fun.. light fishing gear is great for them and all you need is a small pink spoon. You can hook them almost every cast. And Oct - Nov is chum and springs and coho. They can be easy to catch.. especially chum.. at a good small nearby river but require a larger setup. Next year I want to see if catching chums from the Fraser shore is difficult or not.
