Because my regular steelhead fishing mate couldn't make it this year and I don't want to fish all by myself in BC, I joined another group of Dutch anglers that wanted to fish their 1st week at steelhead and the 2nd week at Rainbow trout that are preying behind the spawning Sockeyes. The group consisted of nine anglers and was again divided into 3 subgroups of every three anglers. I know too many anglers. I would be the first week with my pontoons scanning the river and looking for places where the rest could never come. That was a good decision. The group in total managed 17 steelheads to hook of which 11 were landed. I hooked 8 and landed 6 of them so I am therefore quite happy. In addition

In 1992, just after the perestroika, I went to Eastern Siberia to swing some flies for coho salmon. Just before the large groups of Japanese and American anglers come and ruined the prices for ordinairy people like me.
We fished for 10 days and I had 192 salmon and large char!
I would like to back , but then for the taimen!
Late August 1990. The 3 of us drove by camper from Calgary to Hazelton.
We parked the camper at the Kispiox Steelhead Camp, at that time owned by Olga Walker.
We met our friends who were there already a couple of days. They cought some steelhead they said.
And of course we hurried to the river!
Within 20 minutes I hooked my 1st steelhead!
I played the fish for 10 minutes or so and since that moment I'm hooked to flyfishing for steelhead!
Since 2007 I own 2 WaterSkeeter pontoons, suited for class 2 rivers to raft. Now we are able to reach easily fishing spots that cannot be reached by walking in from the backroads.
We can transport easily a couple of rods and other fishing gear.
This is a very convienent way to explore the rivers.
