Author Topic: What river is good to cast & retrieve lures?

I've been to most of the popular rivers here in the lower mainland; fraser, vedder/chilliwack, stave etc. Most people i've seen either float or bottom bounce, but I don't see many people casting lures. I know how to do all three, but I must say I do like casting lures the most. So my question is this, what is a good place to cast & retrieve lures that doesn't impede on those that are doing other methods? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Alot of people in the vedder short float lures. I have my Float-->Weight-->Swivel-->2ft leader-->roe or lure

You can also cast a retrieve in the pools and such.

Alot of the fraser river, dewdney slough, Harrison river or pit river is available for casting lures

2 years from now will be pink season again.. which means you can cast spoons anywhere in the Fraser and catch pinks (spoons are the most popular method). I did it for the first time this year and it was great.

You can toss spoons in any river your fishing. When you see 20 guys tossing all sorts of gear into a pool go the the tail out and swing a blade/spoon through it. Most times you will get something. This is coming from experience. I'll walk into an area see a bunch of guys and instead of trying to get a spot, right away i'll take the float/weight off and throw a spoon on. Go to the tail out and swing a variety of blades/spoons through, whihc usually results in something within minutes. The fish get pressured and either move up and out or down to where everyone isnt trying to yank a 3od into their face.

Every year, tossing spinners at Coho in the tidal Fraser.
#3 or 4 mepps brass Aglia, never fails, many times out fish the guys with the bar rigs using roe, they nail the little jacks, and I hit the big aggressive fish.
Get out there, try the Stave too with spinners.
Love short floating them on the Vedder.

For sure the fraser is good i caught lots of coho there last week on lures with the odd chum thrown in. I had to keep changing different lures to keep the catch rate up though !!!!
