It's been years since I fished the Dean, sigh, but enjoy recalling hooking many large, feisty, albeit somewhat long-in-the-tooth Nookies during my quests for steelhead, usually too late in the season for said Nookies to be prime (late July, August). Impressive, though, how readily those fish took flies. Too bad it isn't a general trait.

Will you be fishing above or below the falls?

Cheers,

Eric

Anxious.....

Above and below BC West has a Camp below the Falls and Jet boats for below and ATV Quads for access above the Falls. I did the same week last year it was "awesome". I'm already packing bought a new Berkie that hasn't arrived yet, the 10 wt 12' 9" 4 piece model and a Orvis Hydros Disc Drag VI. Guy said its tough to fish Albacore sooooo. I have well over 100 flies tied and am still thinking I should tie some big suckers on Brass Tubes!!!! I'm Hopeless near Seattle.

Brass tubes? When I was there, back in the 90's, weighted flies were not allowed on the Dean. Maybe things are relaxed if you're targeting Springs (as they say in BC).

Jest wondrin'

Good question...

Several fellows were throwing very heavy tubes and leeches I assume its legal. After all there are guys chucking Brass Spoons and big chunks of pencil lead with drift gear.
