Hey, I like to use gibbs crocs in various sizes, in bronze with orange stripe and nickle with orange stripe, nickle with blue stripe and green stripe.

Fly wise try some flash flies (too many colors to list) in sizes 1/0-8, sparse rolled muddlers in sizes 4-8, all of these have provided quality fish for me in the past.

Hope this helps.

Mike <")))))><

A BAR RIG FOR BOTTOM BOUNCING FOR COHO'S????? UMMMMM NO!!!! but they do work well rith roe on the hooks with a weight roughly 2-4 ounces to keep it on the bottom works great for coho! as for thinking about bottom bouncing in the fraser for coho i honestly do not think that is allowed by no means!

spincasting hardware for hos works very well.small flashy spoons like the Gibbs Ultra spoon silver in 1/3 is always in my vest, as is hammered copper anything and everything.blue fox spinners are also an essential, #2 or 3 pref with a brass blade.am going to try jigs soon and I hear they work very also.

People keep saying that I am nuts! But Ho's will very often take a wedding band as well, I have found them to be quite sucessful and many on here agreed when the topic came up last year. I sometimes do use a worm with it as it will entice trout to the hook also.

This probavly sounds totally sacreligious to you fly guys and float fishermen out there, but would a bottom bouncing leader saver with a 4-5 ounce weight, then 2 feet to a leader and spin'n'glow or other bait work for the coho on the vedder? some guy told me that it would. i don't see why not. anyone tried it? don't worry, i fly fish before anything else ;)

buddy it works, I know in some rivers in BC thats what they do, but don't know about a 4oz, 1-2oz's gets the bait right down into the fish zone.

Well for the last few years I almost exclusively fished coho with spinning gear. My start off lure is a colorado spinner, gibbs makes good ones, but you can get some good ones for cheaper too. Smaller sizes in clearer water, larger in murky water. Experiment with colors until you find whats most sucessful. Most spinners will work quite well, and I agree that wedding bands are good coho lures. For spoons I like almost any gibbs spoon, croc, kitimat, ironhead, koho, etc. Brass or gold colors work well, and you can't go wrong with a little red on there somewhere. Size is also dependant on water clarity, and agressiveness of the fish. My biggest coho ever was caught on a large red spin n' glo with white wings. I was fishing it like a spoon, just casting and retrieving it behind a piece of pencil lead. I wasn't seriuosly trying to catch anything, I was just experimenting, and I've never caught another one on a spin n' glo since. I've heard flatfish work well too. I've tried them but never caught a coho on one, but the action that the flat fish makes, seems to bring the fish right to shore chasing it. Coho often do that while you're lure fishing, and It can be very frusterating :evil: Usually a color or size change will help entice a strike. Well thats alot of info :lol: Hopefully it helps someone out, good luck out there :!:

Are you guys using spinners in the same types of water that people would also use tube floats, pencil lead and wool? i.e. Chilliwack River - KWB area, Tamihi, etc?

I havew to agree, there probly my favorite spin casting lure for almost all game fish, including, coho. Works well with a small split shot. Blue, black, green, red all work well.

he was trying to sabatage your fishing! a spin and glo will spook fish in the vedder, and a 4OZ weight will sink it like an anchor.
Use pencil lead and wool, with a 6' leader....never had a problem with this method.
I've even cought them with rubber worms.. just holding my line in an eddie.. BAMM!

I agree Sanderson ........ must be a first. :wink: Glows do not spook fish when the right size and colour is used. I also use the small sliding pencil lead or split shot for weight. Longest leader I have used on the Vedder is about 2 1/2 feet in real clear conditions ....... at 6 feet I would think I'm in the wrong river. Four casts and you could cover the whole water flow at that length. :roll:

Six foot leader!, isn't that a little long for the Vedder?

Did he mean 6" :D
6' would never get you in the zone :?
I was using 14" leader
a short pencil lead and a drenan float :wink:
the other day and it worked well
if the flow is fast use heavier lead but not more than it would take to sink a foam float
