Non existent lol. Wait, would a day fishing for sun fish in Elk lake count? If so, it was non stop action. cheers
Haven't been out at all due to other priorities. Wish I could contribute more.
Used to fish Elk, prospect and Langford and did decently.

Not bad. Langford had been fishing good, especially since they introduced some decent sized trout. Lots of 16-18'' fish and a few bigger. Seems to have slow down a bit. No boats on there yesterday when I walked around. Last weekend and today I fished Durrance. Lots of action but very few fish over 12''. A few surprises though.

Hi Guys and Gals,
I thought i would ask the fellow anglers here how your 2016 Freshwater season was?
Any huge or big catches?
Favourite places on the island to fish?

I just moved back to the island from Ontario and had part of the season to try out a few lakes in the greater victoria region.
I spent more time in 2016 looking for spots and revisiting some places I had previously been when I lived here before.
Not the most productive season compared to the previous 2 in Ontario bass fishing and carp fishing but I did manage to land a 4lb+ smally at Elk Lake.
Caught a few rainbows and catfish as well later in the season.
I felt like I was mostly trying to take in the experiences rather than trying to land more fish but the 2017 season is here and I'm going to be putting together a better season with a little more focus on landing bigger fish.

Here is a compilation of some short videos I took over the summer on a few of my trips.

I'm not a professional but very much enjoy fishing and learning new techniques and ways to fish.
And..... this year I get to try fly fishing...... I had a friend bring me a 9,5ft Ted Peck fly rod with a Fjord reel attached to it. The best information I can find says that what I have maybe be from the late 1960's or early 1970's.... which for it's condition is amazing.... its older than I am and in better shape.

Tight lines for everyone in 2017!
