Thread - Very quite on the flows Like0 | Dislike0
I finally was able to get out fishing. I covered three rivers and found only 2 anglers and they only lasted 20 minutes till they gave up. . No sign of steelheads or even trout. Water flow was perfect, weather perfect, but no fish. At one spot I can see huge amount of river bottom and normally you can see steelheads moving but nothing. One thing for sure I am getting old as I was puffing and puffing . A sure sign of out of shape also.

You ever walk a trail alone and think something is behind you. Anyhow great day to get out anyhow. They say moss grows on the north side of a tree. Well these trees need to be told that.

Gorgeous picture Gil.

I too have encountered a lack of fellow fishermen on my local flow. Fished the Cowichan last week for 5 hours and met no one else. Managed a small Steelhead and saw 2 sea lions above the washout. I would rather compete with fellow anglers than seals and sea lions.

I'm sitting at home dying of a head cold, so I am not fishing and will have to live vicariously through other peoples posts.
That said I got out twice on the Cowichan in the last 2 weeks as levels were dropping. Saw a couple of boats but no other Bank Maggots. Water was high but fishable ( 1.75 - 2.05 meters ).
Fished mid-river. Hit 6 Steelhead over the 2 days. Fish 2 vs fisherman 4.
Got a bit of a surprise as there was a lot of pre-spawn rainbows in the 2-3 lb range. Usually you only see those fish up in the top of the fly only section. I'm thinking that a lot of them came down during the blow out. Those bows were very aggressive.
