    Cool Back to the basics...

    Hey all.

    Been on a few year hiatus from fishing regularly as my family had been keeping me pretty busy. Kids are getting older now and a few are starting to show interest in fishing, so I thought it would be a great time to get back out there.

    Generally I was a lake guy when I was able to get out with a rod, trolling behind the boat, or fishing the weeds and drops with a fly from my belly boat, but now I'm ready to get back on the river.

    I'm hoping to get some knowledge and get back up to speed so I can help my kids enjoy an activity that gets them off the couch and unplugged. I've even been given marching orders to get some Coho although it may be a bit early for that still... lol

    If anyone feels like sharing a tip or two, or a great spot to take my kids from shore or in our 12ft I have tight lips Unfortunately a lot has changed on the rivers since I went regularly and a lot of the spots I frequented aren't what they were. Generally I'm a vedder guy but wanting to try harrison this year.

    See you out there!

    When i lived in the lower mainland i took the kids to sloughs. They're all over. Almost all have fish,most have salmon. A bobber and worm for trout and coarse fish. Spoons for salmon.

    The Harrison is also great for jig fishing under a float for Chum, but the bars are boat access mostly. Check the regs.
