BC Bound

I will be fishing for two weeks at the end of March and into April. From what I have read you can only purchase a steelhead stamp once per season and the annual license ends on March 31st. So if I got an 8 day license and had to get another I wouldn't be able to get another steelhead stamp? or could I get one?I'm wondering if I can get an eight day during the previous season and then my annual and steelhead stamp during the next. Anyone know more about this?

You will need to, and are able, to purchase 2 steelhead stamps.

Thanks J.G.

Should I pack patterns of all different colors? Or is there a super top secret spring color for BC? I've been tying or te past month or so for BC. Going to need some more boxes.

The super secret color combo is......... Confidence in the fly you are fishing.

If that's the case I guess we should get ready for a new world record steelhead!

I was doing some more research and it said that barbless hooks were required on some water ways. Do pinched barbs count? Or will I have to file the barbs off?

ALL streams in BC are single barbless. Pinched is fine. Just do the test where you run it through some material and if it doesn't catch anything when you pull out, you're good to go.

You can get a 7 day freshwater license but you will need to buy 2 different steelhead stamps one for each licensing year as stated by JG.

I find brighter colors are better earlier in the season but as always water levels and flies you believe in are the real factors.

Are there a decent number of stations with diesel up in Northern BC heading towards the Yukon? I take it I should never get below a half tank or pass up a station?

Unless you are literally heading towards the Yukon on the Cassiar you need not worry about it.

Cool, I have fished alot of it so if you have any questions about AK or YT let me know.

If you are going up the Cassiar then you should absolutely keep your truck full and I always carried jerry cans as well.

If you are going up the Cassiar, you need to be very conscious of fuel.

I coasted into the fuel station at Kitawanga last summer on the last of the fumes in my tank because the gas station was closed for the night in Dease Lake and I skipped Bell thinking I could get fuel at Mediadin Junction. My Ford F350 w. camper ended up going end to end on a single tank of fuel, but that was because of my bad decisions and is not recommended. I'd try to keep 1/2 a tank at all times and you should be able to withstand any closed fuel stops.
