Used to fish there a fair bit in high water . Saw it come up fairly rapidly at times  but never even close to what I would call a flash flood .

People that say the canyon section may be dangerous may be referring to the possibility of a flash flood from the unstable landslide letting go? Not sure. I've been on it in heavy rain, and I would say it's far from a flash flood scenario, you have ample time to leave.

I saw a few in Arizona and other places in the states, and they are nuts. You get rain and literally 5 minutes later there is a river half the size of the Vedder where there was nothing before that will take a car no problem. The standard protocol in one area we were at was to pull over in the middle of the road with 4 ways on (during the heavy rain you couldn't drive), and wait for the storm to pass by. The reason they started telling people to pull to the middle of the road, was that same year we were there a family pulled to the side and had their car taken away  ;D We rarely get enough rain to cause one, and our ground doesn't allow for it.

Chehalis canyon maybe.

Never fished there but I think someone mentioned it before.

Vid is so wacky funny.
Lots of truth to it as sometimes a little slip up boats do float away from the launch.

On a serious note on boat launching: Before backing line up the trailer straight with the launch.
As you back up keep trailer close to the dock side.
To steer it nicely to where you want the trailer to go simply back very slowly as you look in your mirrors. ( best to look in the left side mirror 90% of the time; 10% the centre mirror. )

Put your hand at the bottom of the steering wheel & from there just turn the wheel the direction you want the trailer to go.
Only works if you grab the bottom of the steering wheel.
Want the trailer to go left just turn the steering wheel about 4-5 inches to the left.
After the trailer turns bring the steering wheel to the bottom position again.

A few practise runs & you will be a pro.

Better to practise on non busy days.
Beginners taking too long will generate a lot of icy stares & possibly hot words spoken.
Ha! Boat ramp follies.

Apparently there was a 6.6 M earthquake off of Port Hardy yesterday evening. Pretty weird that I could feel it all the way in Langley. I also saw the water in my aquarium start sloshing around for a good 30 seconds and the lights in the ceiling started swinging.

Anyone else notice this?

Not really a flash flood but the water can come up pretty fast on the stave due to the dam or tides.

--they did get build under the now familiar self policing and in house studies to show how good they were for the environment.
--then finally people started thinking ... hey wait a minute... why are you only cutting a line of trees around the edge and leaving all the junk in the bottom lands.
--more people became aware thus... stop Site C.... now Christy says we have to build Site C.

--I am not against every current or future project. I use an aluminium boat... big electricity to refine that. I have electric heat...although recently installed a heat pump thus reducing power consumption by about 40% but my bill is actually higher than it was before... thanks to some great decisions by Government.

--Just don't sugar coat the know effects... some projects will still have to go ahead if we want to keep living the way we do. Lets make informed decisions not idealogical ones.

--Since when is "Grow the Economy" the only conscideration

Should there even be any steelhead fishing with such miserable numbers?

Is this fishery managed in this way or is it a free-for-all because it is a provincial jurisdiction?
I know the numbers seem very poor but it is still relatively early.  I suggest the next 2-3 counts will shed more light on this issue, especially if more flow has been added to Centennial Channel, as we requested.
