My Big Trout Story

Submitted by admin on Tue, 04/03/2012 - 20:15

September is one of my favorite months. The sockeye salmon signal the autumn season as they come into the Chilko River to spawn and lay millions of eggs.  This is the fall feast for fish, wildlife, and everything under the Chilko sun.

This last fall I wanted to experience the joy of catching a trout on a dry fly, before the trout started to feed on the sockeye salmon eggs.

Fly Fishing on Chilko River a picture of John


Suzanne and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tsylos. It was the highlight of 2011 for us, and ranks among our all-time best trips. I feel truly fortunate to have experienced the awesome fishing - I often look back at the pictures from the trip, and long to return to the Chilko River. The only thing that would make it better next time is lower water levels so that I could do more wading!

Karen and Bud Go Fishing – A Fish Tale

After spending the season listening to the “big fish stories”, and seeing everyone’s trout photos, I had to get out and go fly fishing! I decided to check out the river myself. See if these big fish tales were true. So, on one of those perfect Chilko River days, I closed up my office, gathered up my fly fishing gear, dusted it off, and headed out with Bud, my Dad.
