Author Topic: Upper vedder spring - second fish ever :)

Hey guys Im new to the forum and fairly new to fishing. I fished the upper vedder yesterday bright and early, hooked into 2 springs lost the first one (small one) and brought in this pig

Here's the pic!

Just fish the bottom, I used 25# main line and 20# test leader (very short like 4-5 inches) baited with procured roe (they couldn't resist my huge chunks of chumm roe lol) fish the seam.

I cast close to shore and slowly work outwards.

My fish weighed in at 15 pounds gutted, she was full of eggs which I'm curing.

As for the location, I can't say as someone else took me there but the whole river is fishing nicely.

gutted? release those beautiful fish!

Sorry if it's a yummy fish and retention is permitted it's going to get bbq'd lol I love salmon

The river is really shaping up, I'm sure you'll get some solid fishing in

Honestly I'm not experienced enough to know lol. Procured roe rocks though!
