Bull trout wrestling

Published on January 26th, 2011 by Rodney

January is almost over and fishing has not been too productive for me in 2011. I blame it mostly on a lack of trying. Vancouver has been rainy through this month and being a fair-weather fisherman, the dampness has kept me indoor more than usual.

Yesterday, we took advantage of the mild, overcast weather by visiting a stream in the Lower Mainland to ease the cabin fever. This particular system has a steelhead return, but our goal was to see some winter bull trout because the chance of encountering a steelhead is pretty small compared to the Chilliwack River.

Not only did I catch my first fish of 2011, it turned out to be a fantastic outing. The surroundings elevated the quality of this fishing experience. We could see bald eagles at almost every spot we stopped by and there were even spawning coho salmon still swimming around.

Enjoy the video! You can expect more of these to come in 2011.
