Author Topic: Coarse Fishing

For all those out there who either like coarse fishing,or who cant drive, how is the coarse fishing coming ? i know its spring and thats awsome when it comes to coarse fishing as the water begins to warm and the fish start to show up and feed. Carp, Chubs,etc. has anyone had any luck catching anything at the local piers? i know it seems weird, but i dont got my drivers licence and that really sucks

John, hi!

The other day I was hiking on the dyke on the West side of Richmond (between #1 Rd & Gary Point) and there is a shallow pool along the dyke. It is full of carp! I've seen at least 30+ fish in the range of 1-3kg. They seem to be active and searching for food.

That means that other local water should see some boost in coarse fishing as well. If you will be planning on fishing in local small rivers, check regulations first as some of them might be closed to all kinds of fishing in spring.

WHAT!!!!!!!!!! Thats awsome! where the hell is there carp in richmond? around gary point??? can you be more specific please im the coarse fish hunter in richmond

upps - it is between Steveston Hwy and Garry Str (Gary Point Park) right on the sea side dyke (West of Richmond).

see the map

tight lines!

Alright thanks man

ill be looking forward to this

what tide was it? and also did you try fishing for them?
how low was the water?
Alex, have you tried fishing for them?

you can email me,


anywhere else to go for carp around there?
The Yak

i hear lafarge lake in coquitlam has carp..

i have seen people catch 5-8lb carp out of burnaby lake near the rowing area....lots of marshy water there..and squawfish.

i live rite beside the dyke where u seen all those carp

badboi, this freshwater pool is not affected by tides. It is close to the shore, but since it is behind the dyke (dam) it is independent.

Small rivers, like Nikomekl and Serpentine (between Richmond & White Rock) have carp.

Hatzic lake by Mission is famous for carp.

so u see all those carps too?
have u tried fishing for them?
is the water clean? as in equavalent to fraser river river water?

no actully i havent tried fishing for them but there are alot of them
