Author Topic: Tidal Fraser River

Fishing the lower Fraser doesn't get any love on this website. Anybody have any luck or have any favorite spots? I've read about spots in Richond, thought I might give them a try. Thoughts?

FWR has some good write ups on tidal Fraser bar fishing. I am going to try it out tomorrow after work at Brownsville and the weekend as well if I get time.

Watch your tides, nice to find bars that have a fast drop off so the fish are more likely to be within casting range. Find most salmon are in the south arm, but that could just be a coincidence. Patience is key!

Ya, FWR is what gave me the idea of trying that part of the Fraser. Dump bar gets a good write-up on his website. Bently: congrats on your catch.
FWR stresses that the best time to fish is within the two hours leading up to high tide, do you guys find this true? I also was going to try Roe on a bar rig.
I read that on this part of the Fraser you are allowed two hooks per rod. Is this true?
When I moved from Ontario to here, I threw away my walleye bar rigs which have two hooks on them. I thought they were illegal here. If it's legal, I guess I should have kept them, or maybe I'll get some more at wal-mart.
Thanks for the ideas.

also with two rigs, theres alot more chances of tangles well your casting. i like to stick with just one, its alot more hasil free. Good luck

Caught a wild coho at Brownsville bar with Roe

I had one rig but most had two...

I went out Sunday afternoon just before high tide w/ no luck. Here's where we were

I think it's Dump Bar.

Didn't catch anything; however, spent half of my time figuring out roe loops.

Just found this forum. I fished the dump in Richmond a few couple years ago and had good success catching dollies in the spring. I used to catch coho about half way up between the pump house and the upper fence. There used to be a sunken steel pipe that lays from the beach out. Submerged at high tide. If you know where it is fish just below it, the water seems to back eddy a little.

Has anyone ever tried off the south end of Gilbert Rd in Richmond ? On the down river side of the pump house. On a half low water I've seen a nice sandy beach. In the late spring I watched a couple of guys catch sturgeon there. Just curious!

under mission bridge on opposite side of town is fishing. watch the pillings in the water right now. some are still under from the hi water. on thew side of town its full of rough rock and snags. never see anyone there. other side will soon be bussy for pinks.
lower side of cp bridge is tidal and above is non
