After catching my first fish on my own off the dock and Okanogan Lake I was hooked for life. I'm now 16 but I don’t know much about fishing and I don’t have anyone to show me the way or teach me.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I’d like to get some fishing done on the cap, Fraser, and vedder River this summer. I know things like when the fish will be there and when to fish and when the runs come and go but I need some help with the setups and gear.

Could some one help me out with these?


Float fishing at the cap



Float fishing at the vedder


Bar fishing on the Fraser


Could some one please help me with the setups ex. line test, weight to use, rigging, bait, color, tip, secrets....?


Also if anyone would like tell me some good spots on the vedder, Fraser and cap that would be great.

There is a good source of fishing maps at www.bcfishingreports.com There is an excellent map of where to fish the Vedder/Chilliwack river, along with lots of information on the river. As far as the business end of things, have a look at the forum that abe posted for Vedder river red spring. It shows you the setup he used to catch a beautiful red spring. Line weight and bait or lure selection will vary depending on species and water clarity along with depth you fish, leader length etc.. There is lots of info on the internet as well as some good T.V. shows. The right episodes of "Sport Fishing B.C." are very good. It's my favorite fishing show, but there are others that are good too. Catching Salmon or Steelhead in the rivers is an art that requires a great deal of knowledge and skill! Don't be discouraged if you don't succeed at first, watch the successful anglers on the river and try and copy what they do as closely as possible. Concentrate hard on your float and try and visualize what's going on under the water. Keep in mind fish will look for some kind of cover that will keep them out of the current but close enough to it that they can strike at food drifting by them. Keep in mind also that the current near the bottom is generally slower than near the top. Your success can also be increased by fishing during the peak of the runs. As a general rule, there are more salmon in the rivers during September or October, but that varies from one river to another and from year to year. This year due to the strange weather everything seems to be a little late, but the fish will decide when they want to run. High water levels also make it easier for them to run through the rough spots in the river so if the weather trends continue, we should get good runs this year, but many other factors will affect the fish numbers in the rivers. Tight Lines!
