OK guys...it's almost spring chinook season and i'm really looking forward to a great season of chinook fishing...I CAN'T WAIT TO START CUTTING CUT-PLUGS!!!! Anyway, lets see how good you are...who can name the river that this fish came from? Here's a hint...caught in late march of last year while fishing steelhead, using roe (gotta love that stuff), and as per regulations, it was RELEASED...

As for the place, looks like Vedder - On the Way, Lower Bar. But why do you need glasses on an overcast day?

It's the Kitimat River.

As to the glasses-they are polaroids and people use them to help spot fish.They are also the best way to protect your eyes-gear can come flying out of the water and nail you bad anytime.

Also-if you'd ever fished in BC know that it's sunny one moment and overcast the next-people don't remove their polaroids just because a cloud goes over.

nope and nope...not the vedder (not even close) and not the Kitimat...keep trying!

ps...the glasses are cause the fish is soooooooooo chrome.

OK then it's gotta be the Kitimat-although I haven't seen the Nass so I can't be 100% sure.

It's not the mainstem of the Skeen or the Kasiks or Exchmasiks ot Exstew.

smelly roe

Vedder!! Alex , there's no chinook in the Vedder in March!!! It's gotta be north because that's where you'll catch springs in- Spring. I say the Skeena
smelly roe

Whoops, I think you can keep springs in the skeena. I don't know . Where is it??? Fraser, naa, water is too clean.

nice fish. that early in the season and being so silverbrite, i have a tendency to go with the island myself. maybe somewhere along the alberni valley or cowichan? plz, do tell.

ok..ok..ok...salmon assasin was 110% correct...it's the Kalum...or a side channel actually...just below the willow run...we managed to get a few springs and steelhead out of the one pool before it got spooked out but this beaut was the nicest by far...GET READY FOR SOME MONSTER SPRINGS THIS SEASON!!!! Ps...here's a dodo we caught yesterday...not a chinook but still a nice fish!

those look like sturgeon rods

Actually I have heard of people catching chrome springs in march,april, and even during the fly only in may, on the Vedder. They are very rare but they are in there.

Actually people do catch the odd chrome spring in the vedder throughout march,april,and may. They are however, very rare... If you dont beleive me ask at any tackle shop,people catch them every year. I will also add that if you catch one you should let it go regardless of the regulations, there are so few of them that even one bonked is a big impact.
smelly roe

Jerky, that doesn't make sense. If there is a spring in the vedder in march, it's just waaaay early, not endangered or anything. Or even just lost. You think they are a rare run? I've been fishing there forever and never heard this. I'm gonna ask Pete at Freds when I pass by tomorrow. I'll report what they say. Just curious.

By the way, where's the Kalum?

Actually Peter MacPherson from fred's was one of the first guys to tell me about them. Since then I have seen and heard of a few caught. A couple of seasons ago this fella who rides a bike around the river and weilds a spey rod hammered half a dozen of them during the fly closure in the canal.Some of those could have been earlies cleaning out there gills in the canal but I have also seen and heard of chrome springs landed in the upper river in march and april.Im pretty sure some of the guy's from hub's have landed some as well because they mentioned them last season in their online fishing reports and how they should be released if encountered.
