Hey guys, i recently bought myself a 14ft 25hp aluminum boat and motor to get away from the crowd when bottom bouncing. I am new to the river and the only spots i know to bottom bounce are seabird island and scale bar. I am wondering where are some hot spots for springs/socks, and where can i fish because i know that a lot of the land is owned by native people. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The first place i will try to fish will most likely be the island to the opposite of the Agassiz boat launch.

who cares who owns the land.
nobody owns the water.
although, there's alot of debate on that also.
i find it's easier to just stay away from any reserve land areas all together.
it sickens me some of the stuff i've witnessed watching them "fishing".

There are a couple nice bars up in Hope, usually less crowded too. -Balraj

Could you please show me some on google maps?

I'm not going to give away my spot, because usually its me and 5 other guys max, sometimes I have the spot to myself. But there are some bars, including St Elmo, Laidlaw, and many others, just do a google search, you will be amazed with what shows up.

^exactly what he said, go out and explore, I have a 12 ft with a 9.9 hp so I have to use extra caution but you got the right boat for the job, go out and find new spots and tell us.

There's a book I've seen at some shops:
"fishing the upper fraser river" or something like that. It's paperback, spiral bound. Looks very detail oriented. Take a look for that.

just go where everyone else is, usually every bar has multiple boats on it
