There is a spot on the little campbell river when you can get into lots of Coho. Have to cross it and walk a bit thew trails of poison ivy but by mid fishing season there usual beaten down. Fish the boundary, they all tend to hold in the no fishing zone.

Go out and explore you will find it.

By losing tons of lures on snags exchange for one fish.

So tidal and non-tidal regs are the same in these systems? I can only see non-tidal.

Given that the tidal border is effectively the estuary.  There is no more river downstream of the boundary.

Ahh i see that train bridge now. I was looking at the wrong one.

You should be able to find access with some exploring.
Look at the regulations and look for any closed seasons or areas.
Check out google earth or even street maps of the area.
I think a lot of the fun is just doing the exploring and once in a while you get lucky.
Is pretty hard to give you access spots and not give up our secret spots.

This is proper fishing in a nutshell IMO.

I spend a ton of time exploring and learning new waters. I have been skunked far more days than not - but love exploring and realize how much more satisfaction you do get once you find places and techniques that are working.

It's not in the regulations that I see, so I'm wondering if I can put a cartopper into the lower reaches of any of these rivers with an electric and fish from it or is it not allowed or at least point me in the direction where I can find such information

Serpentine, L. Campbell or Nicomekl

Thank you

Yes, you can.  Its not ideal though.  For instance you can get stuck in Mud Bay pretty easily at low tide around the mouth of the Serp.  It completely empties of water at low tide.

Best to just park and walk.  But there are way more fish in the Vedder, Chehalis, Stave etc.

It was in fact I that asked this LoL  ;) if people are going to continue to post about these systems publicly then I feel ok asking about them as they are systems I'm still learning

Damien, plan was to slide my jon in and putter around letting the kids cast or just float and cast. Would allow us to cover water and spots the bank is pretty sketchy with kids. I would know, I've fallen/slid in once already. I'm aware of where has more fish but this is close to home and good for short outings

There is no angling from power boats allowed above the tidal gates in the Nic and the Serpentine. It is in the regs. I doubt the Little C is navigable. You may have trouble getting a boat, or canoe into the Nic or Serp above the gates. Sections of the streams may be too shallow for navigation at times.


People should also be aware that such regulations are governed by the Federal Transportation Act regulations.

Yeah, I suppose you could.  Might be a handful trying to the get boat back up the muddy banks.  Might be better to try the estuary areas of these systems from the boat, below the gates/dams.  And it can be a bit unpredictable in the terms of having to row/paddle back to where you put in with tides, currents, and dams opening or closing.  As Ralph mentioned, no power boats above the gates/dams.

I might suggest putting in on the Fraser like Derby Reach or something. 

Pinks rolling through, schools of coho, jacks, sturgeon etc.  And lots of course fish to keep the kids interested.

The areas I was talking about was between the gates and ocean. It would just be nice to have options....float tube or pontoon is another option instead
