Author Topic: 4 pinks in 2 hours...not bad ..sore arm though!

went fishing last night. 2 hours before low tide. it was really happening. used lead jig single hook and plastic tail. once tide was full it was all over. location is just before alex fraser bridge along river road. They sure fight hard!!!

wow im impressed any secret spots?

Did you try a jig under a float or your were casting jig with a curly tail? Pink color, I guess?

DFO estimates 25 million Fraser pink salmon return this year (compare to 3 million sockeye).

When do the Pinks close on the Non-Tidal portion of the Fraser????????

Fraser will be closed to salmon fishing Sep 22 - Oct 10.

i used white plastic wormy tail with lead jig. a couple of bead weights. A single small hook is important about the size of a thumb. keep sharp always. use light jigging retrieve. No snagging and usually all the fish are male caught in the mouth.

wrong ,they close on the 16th.

Seen a lot of fishermen today in Richmond casting from shore between 2nd and 3rd roads. Most of them were using spoons (red/white, pink, brass crocs). Water there is quite fast right by the shore. Some were bar fishing.

Seems like a good sign. And yes, tidal section of Fraser will be closed to fishing after this weekend.

Joefisherman: yes the tidal waters close at that time, he is talking about the non-tidal waters upstream from the mission cpr bridge.

Finally managed to catch some pinks in Richmond (2/3 rds). Very slow retrieve of Gibbs Ultra (silver/pink color) produced two fish for me late in the everning.

Generally - a very slow day, fishermen who spent there all day said only 7-8 fish were caught. So, I should feel lucky, I guess

Alex Fraser Bridge was quite productive today for pinks.
