Hey I have been spending lots of time fishing along the Fraser around Queensborough and Annacis island.

I usually set up a triple swivel with a weight on one line and hook on the other with a worm and let it sit on the bottum off shore. I catch bullheads and white fish and just let them go. I have spent probably 40 hours in the past 2 weeks in total maybe more and all I have caught is a few bullheads and white fish. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some info on these areas I fish.

I know that Chinooks are starting mid July and I hear there are Dolly varden and cuttthroat trout in and around Queensborugh/Annacis island.. I know many of you won't answer because you want me to find out for myself, which is understandable and I have been trying to learn.

Problem is that half of the people I talk to out there tell me different random info..

I want to catch fish lol. And not JUST bullheads! The rat basterds are everywhere I go eating the worms I get from my yard and stealing my hooks! Is there anyone else on here who fishes these areas that could give me tips or who would be into going fishing with me some time? Thanks :D

This is not the best time of year to be fishing for Fraser River trout and the method you are using would be better suited for the fall fishery (aug through dec). April-May is the best time in the spring, but you can still get them now.

Remember: right now they are primarily feeding on salmon fri coming down the river, so you want to imitate that by casting and retrieving small spoons and spinners (tipped with worm or artificial scent would help in the merky water). Fish the outgoing tide only, especialy just after high tide when their food is coming down river (that's when they are feeding). Back eddies, estuaries and creek mouths are better spots to try.

Salmon is a whole different timing and set up, but not open yet.

Hmmm I will try fishing when the peak tide is about to drop. Usually I go randomly or on low tide so I have room to have a fire and fish on Annacis. The only thing about casting lures is my spot is snag city haha. Do you think I would produce as well if I reel in fast so my lure stays fairly high in the water say 1 meter deep?

Yes, reel relatively fast. They are feeding mid water now, not on the bottom.
