2013 Chilliwack River Clean-ups

Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society has finalized this year’s river clean-up dates with the City of Chilliwack and Fraser Valley Regional District. They are:

  • April 20th at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • July 20th at the Great blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • September 29th at the Chilliwack Fish and Games Club

This will be the twelfth year since we started the group. In 2012, participants racked up 2,464 volunteer hours, collecting 5.72 metric tonnes of garbage from the Chilliwack River. This shows the importance of having these clean-ups. Not only are we maintaining the Chilliwack River valley so it is a pristine recreational corridor for all to enjoy, we are also minimizing garbage from being washed into the Pacific Ocean. Please support these three clean-ups once again in 2013.

Fishing with Rod reached a milestone today. Thanks to your support by watching our videos, subscribing to the channel and providing us with your feedbacks, Fishing with Rod is now the first Canadian fishing YouTube channel to reach 10,000 subscribers!

We started producing online video content in 2006 when YouTube first hit the internet. Our videos in the first few years were done on what was then a rather expensive DV camera. Since then, our videos have evolved to 1080p HD that can be viewed on your large screen television. Our goal has been to share our experience in fisheries that are family friendly, which you can also enjoy later on.

Many thanks to our commercial supporters last year, including Shimano Fishing, Islander Reels, Pautzke Bait, Yakima Bait and Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. Without their support, our video content could not have grown and improved.

This year, we will once again be producing long video blog episodes to show you different places to fish in British Columbia. There will be instructional videos as requested by many viewers.

To celebrate our milestone, we will be running some contest give-aways in the next several weeks, so please check our contest section often.
