Author Topic: springs on the shuswap river

lots of fish in the shuswap although they aren't always biting that much. if in the enderby area give them a try. roe works best.
i caught 2 nice does this week in the 15 to 20 lb range. i friend caught a beautiful 34 lb'er last wednesday followed by a 28 lb'er.
am going to try the thompson river below chase tonight to see how it is.

Hey just curious as to what type of set-up you use for the springs?? im from kelowna and thinkin about bootin up there one of these days and giving it a go.

depends on which pool you are fishing. float fishing or bottom bouncing (no, it is not flossing). i usually use an fst size 4 or 5 until it is light enough to see a float. remeber, you can only fish the shuswap from 5 am to 10 pm.
most of the pools are quite deep so for float fishing, use about a rod length to 14 feet.
hope this helps

still lots of fish in the shsuswap river but we need some fresh fish which should sarive any day. there are lots of fish going up the south thompsom now near chase as well.
