Author Topic: Chum salmon Fishing

Hi guys, i wanted to ask if it is a good time to go fishing for chum right now? Where is a good spot to catch them? What technique or method should i use? Basically what is the set up? I am pretty newbie to salmon fishing.

Wondering the same. Whats the most used method.. Roe? I think stave river is a good spot right under the bridge but the fish arent all there yet. Might check it out someday

I think in a few weeks there will be alot more opportunity in that fishery. Ive heard that there are alot in the slough in hatzic and deroche

yz, for chum you can either cast spoons such as crocs (bright colours work well) or float fish with some wool. i have found lime green works well but have had successwith almost any colour. chum are quite easy to catch and fight hard! have fun!!!

Nice. I guess ill see what its like when i get there. Dont think spoons will work for me cause the line is really heavy on my salmon rod.. Unless they like big spoons with just silver color ( used to be pink but faded away.. Never got a pink to bite it though). Heard they like small spoons and ill try green wool + float. See whos catching fish when you get there.

Thanks cagey!
Where is a good spot for me to float fish for chum?

the stave river is very popular but the chum are in most rivers in the lower mainland so it depends where you live or can drive to. the harrison/chehalis river , the vedder river are good.
also some bars on the fraser. one place that can be good is nicomen slough, east of mission. when i was a kid i caught lots on the allouette river and kanaka creek. it is just a matter of finding a spot that suits you. good luck !

Hey what do you mean by purple jigs? A weighed hook with a purple skirt? Or weighed hook + purple grub? Looks like I was doing the wrong thing. Thanks

Thats good to know. They look home made. Ill try look around how to get or make them since I've never done that sort of thing
