the cowie whats the deal, stupid timber west and their logging practices have wiped out the fishery on the cowichan river for steelhead. As steelheaders and conservationists it is a damn shame that the cowie is being ruined by erosion and continual high water. something needs to be done about this wonderful system or it will be lost forever. this year to date i have beached one steelhead on the river in about a dozen trips including drifting the river from sandy to black. the river is only good part of the time the restof time it is either too high or too low and waiting water, its a shame. on the other hane i have fished the good ol stamp river and have beached a total of somewhere around 50 steelhead this season. it is fishable in high, and low gin clear water, always produces fish and not alot of traffic. we need to do something about the cowie all of us or it will be lost. thats my rant, peace out, slabslayer out.
