Historic Vancouver Island Flyfishing Addition
This Summer Steelhead was caught on one of Vancouver Islands Gems... This remote river can be tough to fish a fly productively due to the nature of it. Like other rivers on the Island with Summer Steelhead, the pools where fish stage are large & deep with minimal flows & a smooth surface so fish can see you coming if not careful. Between pools are long lenghts of high gradient stretches that are boulder infested & unfishable at the best of times. Still this river calls me from time to time due to it's spectacular environment & incredible wild Steelhead up to 20lbs. With the tannen water it is sometimes tough to see fish but often if you know where fish hang out, you can see the white of there mouths open & close in this deep clear brown water. This great picture of a friend holding this steelhead reminds me of the quality of many of our small fisheries that rarely see an Angler. The challenge in these waters will make some so called steelhead bums re-think what steelhead fishing is all about!
