Greater Vancouver / Lower Mainland

I am visiting friends in the Vancouver area last week in November ~ first week in December.

I know it's a transitional time for the Vedder where the salmon runs have tapered off and the Winter Steelhead run hasn't started yet.

I am mobile with a car so I can go anywhere within the lower mainland.. Can anyone suggest a few of the local rivers? Or is it even worth taking my fisher gear at all?

Squamish / Vedder / Stave / Pitt or other local rivers?

cheers,

Jimmy

Bamboofool.
Shoot me an email with the dates of your trip and i can probably take you out for a day. Not the best fishing then, but we should be able to find a few fish

One positive thing is you wont' have much competition! The T might be open then if you want to drive 3 hours. If your really stuck send me a pm, I may know some spots.

Thumbs up

The above posts are why I LOVE THIS PLACE!

Going to a new area; 'I'll pick you/meet you 'here,' etc. Personally, I do it all the time (last week). Why should we have a "Brother at Arms" wandering around doing a huge ???????? contest?

Cheers to all

Thanks to all for the offerings.. I have replied individually for specifics...

I actually grew up in Vancouver, but moved away 22 years ago for college... It's been so long that I just don't quite remember my fishing in December... I do remember landing big Kings and Chums on the Vedder....

I will have a car while in Vancouver and have all the time in the world to go fishing...

Any river allows for a two-hander near Vancouver ( three hours' drive ) will be a Christmas gift for me this year... Although I managed to catch a Margaree Salmon just one month ago...

Cheers,

Jimmy
