What are you fishing for? If it's any type of salmon you are looking for a time of year, not day. Weather patterns (ie. temperature and rain) affect the snowpack which in turn affects the height and clarity of the river. The salmon will move up when it best suits them regardless of what time of day it is. :2cents:
Didnt you ask this allready ?? People are catchign fish right now, get out there the red spring run is a small run , you wait to long and your going to miss out, I like red spring fishing, but my favourite time is in the fall.
Mrmugs thanks for the respone , as me understanding of river fishing is next to nil. I have been fishing the Saltchuck to long and we deal with
tides (slack and flood) and contrary to some belief the best fishing is first sun up and sometimes days end. Of course season is important but thats all thats consistant between the river and saltchuck LOL
O ya FF, I didnt ask for season , because yes I did ask that before, but I did specifically type "time of day" !
I went out yesterday at noon and didnt get a bit, I tried the shrimp and no hits, So thats why I was wondering if my arrival time is to late
But .....Mrmugs made it a bit clearer to me ..... :happy: :thumbup:
On the vedder I usually only worry about tides if fishing the extreme lower (say below the train bridge). Other than that for this time of year and whenever the flow is low first and last light will be the best times. Also do not overlook overcast days, then can be good during low flow times.
