The chilliwack/vedder river is having one of the best years in a long time. It is well worth a look. This river is a 1.5 hour drive from Vancouver and there are lots of accomodations near by. Do not let the crowds and hatchery fish comments turn you off the Ved is still home to a large run of wild fish and there is always water to be found for anglers willing to get of of the beaten track.
I would be happy to share some spots with you via PM if you plan on heading out that way, message me if you are interested.
As for all of the discussion of the Squamish and tribs, if you go there be prepared for good bull trout fishing with the remote possibility of hooking a steelhead. Nice river, still quite crowded but less so than the Chill/Ved.
