Fraser River

Regulations changed on 30 Jul 10, you are allowed 4 Spring salmon per day with only one over 50cm. Sockeye opens are expected for mid-August but no retention as of right now. Chinook fishing remains steady with most fish caught on #0 and #2 spin-n-glos. Silver body with green/red tops are working the best. The Chinook fishery has slowed slightly, but will hopefully improve mid-month when the Thompson River fish move through the system.
Sturgeon fishing remains decent with most catches on row, lamprey, eulachons, ditch eels, and pike minnows.

Vedder/Chwk River

Trout fishing in the Vedder is very good for hatchery rainbows. Most fish are caught on single eggs, worms, and row all fished on the bottom. These willing trout are very responsive to flies fished in the deeper pools and backwaters. Chinook fishing on the Vedder has not yet peaked. Most fish are being caught early mornings and late evenings on row, dyed shrimp, and wool ties.

Interior Lakes

Other than larger lakes, most interior lakes are going into the summer doldrums, except for Mammit which remains red hot. If you are fishing any of these lakes, try fishing with number #4-6 wet lines down deep with leeches, dragons, or attractor flies.

Local Lakes/Rivers

Most local lakes are still fishing well for small to medium rainbows. Stacy Lake, Hicks Lake, and Deer Lake are fairly strong for rainbow or cutthroat trout. Chilliwack Lake is a good bet for bull trout while Kawkawa remains strong for Kokanee fished with krill on the bottom.
Skagitt River water level is now dropping steadily and fly fishing with dry caddis and stonefly nymphs is improving. Best bet is between Ross lake and 26 Mile Bridge. As well, the Thompson is really improving for rainbow trout with stoneflies and stimulators.

Tight lines!
