Fished it last Monday for a few hours with no luck (fly fishing). Tried the range of bunny bugs in green, pink, purple, black and combinations of those colours, some yarn eggs in various colours, even some flashy coho flies but nothing. Water was quite high but I saw a couple swiming through the run and coming up to the surface, just couldn't hook anything. What type of water do you guys look for? Slow deep runs? Do you typically have better luck at the head, tail, or middle of the runs?

normally i find my Coho on the outsides of the run or in the tailouts when fly fishing. of course this is more true once some springs hit the water. however they look for "froggy" kind of water like big almost dead moving pools along the edges of the river. which is perfect fly water for us feather chuckers :cheers:

well there is actually 3 sections on the Vedder. Upper, Middle and Lower

Upper is the river above the Tamihi rapids (kayaking area)

Mid-River is from below the Tamihi bridge to the crossing bridge(bridge that goes over the vedder on the main road)

Lower is from below the crossing bridge to the canal (most of us include the canal as the lower even though its like its own area)

Froggy water looks like back swells or large pools along the side of the river. not sure if it is still there but there was a big one down from Allison area, a new one created downstream from Peach rd. area. and there is probably more then that lower down also. Coho also like the deep holes behind big rocks and the slack water right along the edges of the river. that being said I still find most of mine through tailouts though :cheers:

Coho are easily intimidated by other salmon species such as springs and chum HOOK thats probably one reason why youre finding them in the tailouts. As the bigger more dominant salmon are in the main hole and scarying the hos out.

that and im fly fishing for them primarily :cheers: I have never found them in deep slots even before the springs and chum show up. they still seem to hang back a bit from the deepest parts of certain runs. Canal is still the best place for fly fishing as its all just like a huge tailout :happy:
