Well I have been waiting patiently for several months for the July 1 opening of the Vedder/Chilliwack rivers, with the idea that I would go there as soon as someone confirms there ARE fish in the river....To date, I have NOT received a single RELIABLE report as to a fish being taken in these waters. Would somebody please change my mind? I want to get out there! I am going to target these heavies with the fly rod and a bunch of new flies I just received from up north.............They look awesome and all I need is an audience of fish!!
Give me something I can use!!......Ortho 8)

hey ortho launch your boat at barrowtown pump staion and go get em at the mouth, the fish for some reason seem to take better when you troll down use a tee-spoon i use green then change to red later in the year.

I was at the Vedder today and trolled at the mouth, I didnt have any luck but I saw 2 fish caught. Both about 15# I was trolling back to Barrow Town dragging a fly when I saw a big spring jump a couple hundred yards upstream of the rail bridge. So yes Ortho there are fish in there ! :D

I fished the vedde the last 3 days lower,middle,upper and all i had to show for it was one sockeye and a nice dolly all released of course, but gibe the vedder system a week or 2 and it should be more fish in there, heard from freds that 2 springs were taken from the peach area and one guy i know caught a jack spring at allison pools useing shrimp other than that wait it out another week or so, i wouldnt sit around home waiting to hear if anyone is catching them i would just go out and try for yourself you never know you may hook up with a early chromer

Oh, you know I will be out there,alright......it's just that there is so much excitement generated prior to the opening
and a lot of people "heard of a few"... :roll: .I was looking for a solid report of someone hooking & landing a legitimate red. :lol: I never need any encouragement to get out there. I even take my collapseable & spin gear on my motorcycle trips!.............Ortho 8)

I've been thinking of trying to put in at Barrowtown. However, I've never been there before, but I *think* I know generally where it is.

Is this the spot? http://tinyurl.com/npzbs

If not, would you mind giving me directions to it?


Thanks.

Well you have to get off the freeway about 2 miles west of the vedder canal then follow the road back towards the canal on the north side of the freeway. There is plenty of water in the Sumas now and through the next few weeks, but it gets a little "dry" there later in the summer, and early fall and makes launching a bit tricky, but you can get right out into the Vedder Vanal from there and travel down to the mouth and fish wherever you want. Aside from the trains, and the crowds and the mosquitos, it's a fun plasce to fish.......Ortho 8)

Just looking at a map, I believe it may be Exit 104 (#3 Road) coming off the #1 east-bound, then onto the N. Parallel Rd. Sound right?
