Author Topic: Anyone try trout fishing in Fraser?

I just went out for 1 hour in the non-tidal area of mission bridge and didn't get a nible. Tried spinner with worm and float + worm. Also didn't see anyone fishing. Water clarity seems to be as good as it gets too.

Sometimes their just not there.

Yeah. I guess im doing the right methods though. My first time. read reports of people catching like 5 in 1 hour close to streams too

there are some nice rainbows in there now. just need to find a good spot where they are hiding/feeding.
Failure to Launch...

You have to find the trout in the fraser rather then waiting for them to find you. This is one of my favorite fisheries which i do all winter long right into the spring. Nothing better then a cold foggy moring chasing cutties in the back waters of the fraser river on the fly. Me and my buddy park one vehicle down river and driver up river with another. Walk the gravel bars for hours on end searching for the elusive cutties. Sight fishing helps alot, once the salmon fry start to emerge is when it really gets fun.

By sight fishing i mean watch for any ripple, splash or break from a fish going after something, and cast into the area and strip your fly (or spoon) through the spot you seen the action. Gives you quite a rush when you see a splash, lay out a nice cast and start to strip a minnow patern through the area cuz you know your fly is about to be slammed by something.

Please note... These rainbows are in fact juvenile steelhead and should be released with as much care as possible. Use a large enough hook that they can't swallow it deep, barbless, and ensure to keep them in the water, do not lift fish up by the line, no fingers in the gills, no gloves. These 12" trout will come back as 10lb + steelies.

Good areas are any where there is slower water, and back chanels. If salmon have spawned in the area then guranteed there will be some cutties hanging around the area. Also if you catch one there are most likely some more.
