Ultimate Trout Fishing in the Pacific Northwest

By Larry E. Stefanyk

As the saying goes, to catch a fish you have to think like a fish. ULTIMATE Trout Fishing in  the Pacific Northwest instructs readers on how to think like a fish, but more specifically, how a local trout thinks!
Trout fishing is a rewarding sport and it’s easy to get started: licenses are inexpensive, good equipment can be found in all price ranges and best of all, trout are plentiful in saltwater, brackish estuaries, lakes of every size, small streams and large, fast-flowing rivers. There’s no need for an expensive boat either, as trout can be fished from shore, by casting from a small boat or trolling in a float tube.

Want to know when to reach for an Elk Hair Caddis or Tom Thumb pattern or just use a worm? Where to cast your Madam X for maximum appeal? Tried and true advice from old-timers is combined with the most up-to-date information from fishing guides and the latest findings from biologists. This guide covers both fly and spin-casting gear, recommended patterns and baits, as well as river, lake and ice fishing techniques. Also included is information about all five species of trout found in our waters: rainbow and steelhead, cutthroats, brown, Dolly Varden-char, lake trout and kokanee salmon.

Written by Larry E. Stefanyk, founding publisher of Island Fisherman magazine, with contributions from expert anglers and guides Phil Rowley, Ralph Shaw, Joie Coe, Dr. Adipose Huxley, Frank Dalziel, Kenzie Cuthbert, Bill Luscombe and Ron Thompson, here is an up-to-date and exhaustive look at all aspects of trout sport fishing in the Pacific Northwest and Interior British Columbia.

This book is like your favorite fly. It must be in your tackle box and on your bookshelf.

Larry E. Stefanyk lives in Campbell River and is the founding publisher of Island Fisherman magazine.
