    does anyone know when the papermill dam sockeye fishing opens and when does it close? like casting off the rocks into the river. and has there been any fish being caught there?
  2. you fish up in the slicks in the rapids with a float n longleader n wool......make sure your good at casting over yourback because it get pretty tight......shoulder to shoulder so you cant sidecast......n if you hook some guy you gaurentee'd a earful......and if hook the wrongperson prob get a mouth full fist..a buddy got his limit last week

    The "River" itself actually is NOT open for fishing for sockeye. The cut-off is the white signs at PaperMill Dam, right at the first break in flow at the top of the rapids - marked. Up to that point it is considered, and governed by Salt Water Regulation. Make certain you have your TIDAL Licence in hand, the Non-Todal will get you a ticket. Don't venture above that point and retain any sockeye or be prepared to face a ticket and gear confiscation.

    This is a floss fishery, and can and does get quite crowded. Make sure you know what you're doing before leaping into line with the 17 others harvesting sockeye. Some are rather easy to annoy.

    yup buy lots of ice and make it so bears/children dont get into the cooler
  16. go down to the harbourkey and buy saltwater ice will last way longer and keep the fish good[^].............galexy eh...should just camp at the campground along hectare road, way closer to the damn and on the better side of the river also....should take a look at the sites there nice, well if your on that side ill have to stop by n have couple wobbleypops:D

    is their still lots of fish being caught up their? when is the best time to go out, i remeber catching lots at sun-set and also some in the morning but during the day it better to jump in the river and go for a swim then trying to fish because is so dam hot at that time.
