anything representing an egg pattern should be killer... Thats what they feed on at this time of year, especially on high water days...the dislodged eggs from the spawning salmon that came in the fall..it should then switch to small minnow patterns type thingies, like Blue Fox or Mepps spinners a little closer to spring...

Anyone correct me if im wrong...its been a while since i did any spin casting..but thats what kind of patterns i would use for fly fishing so it stands to reason that something similar in representation would work...

How big do cutties get around the lower mainland area and what works the best for a lure, perferably spin casting as that is all i got to use at this time .

Cutties in Fraser are generally in 1-2 lb range. On a rear occasion you can get 4-5 lb.

The best places for cutties at this time of the year are small creeks and sloughs, where they enter the Fraser. Cattermole Slough, Maria Slough Bridge, Gill Bar should work.

Hey Fishfreak... here is an except from the STS guides website on cutties...

Sea-run cutthroat begin migrating from the estuaries to their natal streams in late fall. They may spawn anytime from early winter through early summer. After the eggs emerge, they may spend from 2-3 years in fresh water prior to migrating to the estuaries. Sea-runs don't generally head out into the open ocean like the other pacific salmonids do, but instead, prefer to stay within relative proximity to their natal streams. Like steelhead, Sea-run cutthroat have the ability to spawn multiple times without dieing.

The cutthroat fishing was pretty good this past week. Pick your days. Avoid the cooler ones as it puts the fish down.

Sea-runs are generally not shy. They are constantly migrating so it pays to not spend too much time in one spot if you haven't started catching/seeing fish. These fish will sometimes rise to a dry fly, but a tied down minnow, leech or stonefly nymph is your best bet.

A standard 5 wt. rod with a floating line and a variety of standard trout flies is often all that is needed to entice these fish. In the Fraser they are usually found in the backwaters near Aggasiz and Chilliwack.


I hope this helps you... try your new flyrod,..
