Looks like we are getting good numbers of Coho salmon in Chilliwack/Vedder river. Low/clear water condictions restrict productive hours to early morning or late everning. Never waide the water, try to approach fishing spot carefully and fist several casts should define your success. Roe is the mainstream bait for now.

Tight lines and sharp hooks!

Hey Alex, I hit the Vedder today and I have to disagree with you to a certain extent. Yes the most productive hours are first and last light, but during the day can be quite productive too. Take for example today. I fished the vedder from 9:30 till 5 and between 2 of us we got 5 coho. They are readily biting during the day, but you must find areas where there is cover and use ultralight gear. I saw lots of fish moving through today, even the coho are picking up now. There are still massive numbers of pinks in the lower and upper river but they will soon start to fade away and the springs and chum will come with a vengance. Water is still low but the rain this week will help. Good call on the roe, can't beat it right now.

Hey Dyer. Where were did you happen to come across all those fish? I was at Lickman last week and had two Coho as well as my buddy had a 40 lb plus chinook. I'm going tomorrow thinking about trying a different spot so I'm open to suggestions. Thanx.

Wow thats a big fish! I was down in front of the vedder campground. There is a big long run through there. It is good at times but not always. The water will be on the rise again tomorrow because it is supposed to rain... a lot. This will push some fish in so you can try the lower river, maybe the lickman area or train bridge. You should intercept some of the fresh fish. The fish are spread out through the system so most spots will be holding fish. Ranger may be a good bet or Tamihi rapids. Good Luck. Email me if you want more info.

Anonymous...roe fishing is fairly simple. You should be using the staple float fishing set up: A float along with a inch-2 inch piece of pencil lead, swivel to an 18 inch leader with a # 2 or 4 hook. Tie the hook in a bait holder loop. if you have roe, it should be cured using borax or pro cure. Have you done river fishing before?

sorry about the tripple posting! , thank you Dyer, i have done river fishing once but was using the drifting method with pink and green yarn, and spinners, so the "Roe" fishing is the same set up like the drifting one, where i uses a surgical tube, pencil lead, swivel, but instead of the yarn i use the cured roe? and i saw your instruction regarding how to cure roes, great infos! thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Dyer. It was last tuesday we had the success at Lickman. We went back to the same spot on Friday and didnt catch squat. Monday we went into Allison Canyon for a while caught nothing, then decided to try the meat hole with a bit of success. Landed a monster wild Coho. Very dark though. Hooked into a couple springs also but lost them. We are heading up this afternoon for a bit. We were actually talking about trying the Ranger Run for a while. We'll probally end up at the top end. Thanx for the info, and I'll give you a report.

Yes, you use the same set up as you spoke of but with roe in the place of the wool.

Wow! Did you check your scales? Sounds like both fish set size records for Vedder!

good going guys!!!!awesome fish....it's all about genetics and i guess the hatchery is doing an excellent job with the rearing of these giants!
Sean

51.5lbs. Thats massive. There are so many springs in the river. They are almost as big of a pain the ass as the pinks. You almost always foul hook them. I had a 14lb Coho last Friday. It was a beauty.
