Assuming water conditions are favorable, which method is most productive for chinook? Not sure why I see so many people BB this time of year. I understand when sockeye are open, But bar fishing works well for the chinooks. Is BB that much more effective?????. I am new to salmon fishing and curious. i think i still prefer the chill and relaxed bar method. Thanks.

BB works well and will probably catch you fish but bar fishing will work just as well assuming water conditions are good (visibility etc). Also depends what you fish for. They say Sockeye don't bite lures/bait in the Fraser and that you have to accidently catch them. Might work better for Socks. Assuming visibility is fairly good and there are other salmon running aside from Socks (Chinooks/Coho etc) I would say Bar fishing should work equally if not better! Just my thoughts though :D

Ive always wanted to try bar fishing on the upper fraser this time of year around the agassiz bridge. BB sucks because you hit socks and just tire yourself out. I think sitting diwn reading the paper seems funner the hooking up with the wrong fish and the guys fishing next to you or the cool guy that is like 5 guys up from you lol.
