Has anyone been out lately for fly only season? I am in Vancouver and am on the fence for either going to the Vedder or Squamish. This is my first year fishing the Vedder so I don't know what later season fishing is like.

Both rivers are in freshet. And its LATE in the season, they're called winter steelhead for a reason, leave the spawners alone.

Totally agree.  Consider what a fly only regulation in April would bring ... many out of town/country anglers resulting in a boost to the local economy; tackle shops, motels, restaurants ,fuel outlets, campsites, guides, etc.  Then add in a special levy for this quality fishery for these anglers to support needed habitat restoration techniques that would benefit all other anglers as well.
Yup ;)  Been advocating that for years but sadly, can't see it happening.

I'm not talking about the whole river, just the crossing down to powerlines would suffice.

Id say it would bring less money in...the amount of gear guys coming from all over BC and the US to fish it now is crazy.
