Author Topic: Upper Fraser Bottom Bouncing Question!

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.

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
