Sea-Runís River Report & Courses Update - March 1st



Weather conditions have made some systems a tricky go the last week due to low water levels in a lot of smaller systems, but places such as the Vedder/Chilliwack still have plenty of water. Do not be fooled by the clear conditions as this system is by no means "low." What we are seeing right now is very typical for this time of year, and at the same time many anglers find themselves saying the river is low and clear, but really are just used to the continuous high water events we have had all Winter long. That being said, fishing has been hit or miss most days in the past week and half. We have had some very slow days and some very good days. Right now with smaller pushed of fish coming in it is being in the right spot at the right time.

Winter Steelhead fishing overall has been consistently better than average this year for most systems across the province and we can never complain about that. There have been a lot big fish mixed into the big number days.

Making changes that will get us to the playoffs. ;D

Uncoachables got shut out again. How many times has it been this season ? 15 consecutive losses on the road. 7 wins on the road all year. Played with no emotion. Their minds must be on golf ;D Another Laugh jersey thrown on the ice.

If you want to enjoy hunting in the future in BC you SHOULD get on board and sign the petition to say you are against selling off our big game to foreigners through guides/outfitters. You may never get to hunt moose again through an LEH.  Write letters to you local MLA and the other powers that be to contest this ridiculous allocation.  Below is a link from HuntingBC that desribes if full the dilemma:

http://www.huntingbc.ca/forum/showthread.php?112886-Allocation-Policy-Letters-to-MLAs



Here is the petition to sign:

Link to find your MLA:

Send this out to everyone you know~

Petition link not working for me...

Minister Thomson issued a press release yesterday regarding these matters:

"After more than 10 years of review and negotiations, itís time to put the issue of wildlife-harvest allocation behind us and have some certainty....

Now that a decision is made
..."

Full Story here: http://www.castanet.net/news/Commentary/133967/Hunt-allocation-fair-minister

Obviously in his little mind, it's a "done deal".

Simply Thomson blowing more smoke up our collective asses.
Between him, Ellis (President of the GOABC) and other Lieberal members, so many different sets of "effected numbers" have been tossed out there that it is quite obvious none of them have any real handle on the matter. Or if they do, this is simply a tactic by design to confuse the issue even further.

The issue isn't really focused on "numbers", despite their cries that it is. The Real matter of concern relates to RATIOS of the split (sound increasingly similar to the situation we face with the Feds regarding halibut yet?) wherein outfitters will be afforded up to 40+ % of the annual allowable harvest - and interestingly enough, the "rarer" the animal (as in the greatest LEH subscription numbers) the Higher the allotment ratio is being spun towards the outfitters (GREATLY Reducing the odds of any Resident ever drawing in their lifetimes for many of those hunts). Just as concerning is the Lieberal's intent to Legislate the splits they have come up with for their conspirators.

For conspirators they certainly appear to be. What else would you call the "donations" from the GOABC directly into Lieberal coffers preceding the announcements that so greatly favor their interests (over $ 100K and counting)? Or perhaps the Lieberal government tossing back in excess of $ 380,000 tax dollars to the GOABC's war chest?

Even if one were to simply buy into the numbers game, detailed analysis points out the fact that moose, in one region alone, will realize a reduction of > 120 animals from the Resident's access, and gifted to the commercial outfitters. Smoke & Mirrors indeed!

Finally, it isn't simply the "decisions" being unilaterally made by the Minister on behalf of his GOABC supporters that is at issue. The whole damn process is Flawed through to it's very core. Terms such as collusion, corruption, lack of integrity, and questionable behavior abound. This latest attempt to defuse the controversy was intentionally timed to hit the streets on the cusp of the Protest Rally scheduled for this coming Monday at the legislature buildings in Victoria. It is a Complete FAIL, and Thomson's arrogance in light of thousands upon thousands expressing their very real concerns flies in the face of reality. Perhaps not such a bad thing after all - this condescending release has lit a fire under many every day folks once again, and more are climbing on-board and planning to attend the Rally as a consequence.

This is a Very Important Issue Folks! Already the GOABC has noted their intent to impose guiding requirements for Fishing on NON-Classified waters that fall within their tenures (public lands btw), and are further seeking the right to treat their tenures (again, public lands) as their own Private lands. Starting to get the picture yet?

This should concern each and every one of us who uses the back-country - even if only for fishing, hiking and camping.
The Lieberals are poised to sell us out. The best we can do at this point is ensure the Rally is well attended, and deliver the message that we Will Not Sit Idly By and let our access to our own resources be sold off to the highest bidders!

I'll be wandering down from Port with a full truck, followed by several vans and other trucks. A bit costly alright, but none of us are willing to face the consequences of doing nothing!

See you in Victoria!!

Cheers,
Matt

I think there's one in Lafarge lake.

Ya maybe some prankster should slowly tow a "fake" shark fin 100 yards behind their boat around White Rock beaches.
In reality a future possible story this summer:
" Man buys some fries & piece of cod. He wanders up to his waist in the water as he eats. Great White consumes the entire man in 3 large bites."

Odds of this happening. .0000000000000000000001 %

I'm staying out of the salt water!  :o

the regs are written as they are to include the materials traditionally used to tie artificial flies as not bait even though hackles, furs hair and so forth are natural. They also have a scent.
