Author Topic: Springs are here!

We opened the Spring fishing season today on Fraser.

First, started at Spagetti Bar and landed couple nice ones (see photos below), but local First Nation band decided to drift a huge net couple of times right in front of us, so we had to move. But we managed to land one more on the Spring Bar.

One Spring was white, while the other two were reds. All are in great shape. Talked to other guys and it looks like the Spring Bas was very productive today - over 20 fish. This good run should be around Chawathill (Pipe) in a day (if you are fishing from shore).

So, tight lines and sharp hooks!

sweeeeet...i cant wait for the weekend


Nice fish, Anybody been to island 22, i was looking at the trip planner and it says the fishing is excellent, oh yeah, why do these springs turn red and the fall runs dont, plus is there a bait ban in the fraser right know, the DFO freshwater book isn't much help just tells you where the tidal water starts


Nice Fish! Where is the Spaghetti bar and Big Spring? Please help im new to the Fraser.

Hi, Are you guys boucning or bar fishing? Also if you troll the river what do you use and where do you troll. Where were you catching the springs yesterday?

To my best knowledge color of springs depends on their diet. Red color is due to lot's of shrimp that they eat, while white Springs travel a different route which lacks this kind of food.

Maybe somebody can explain it in more detail.
