Usually they start to trickle in around now, then the bulk when the river rises. Many people find it frustrating early in the season however, particularly if the water is low and clear and it doesn't "seem" like there are any fish around.

My earliest is the monday of the 3rd week of august, and also quite a while ago.

Low light conditions would probably be best say first light and just befor dark? Spinners huh? On what kind of rod? Oh golly gee coho season is almost here finally! CK

Just to clarify...The earliest coho I have caught in the Vedder was just below the Highway # 1 bridge on August 19, 2000. Caught it on a #3 "JacMac" spinner with silver blade....sorry, boys & girls, no pictures of the sleek little 8 lb. doe.......Catching coho in August, to me, is like catching chrome chum in February...Not unheard of, but rare. ........Ortho 8)

Nice Robert! The earliest coho for me on the Vedder was this one...



This little guy was hooked on a x-mas tree pattern on Sept 16, 2005. Also released a 10+ lb chrome spring about 20 minutes before this photo was taken. I remember that there were lots of pinks and spring jacks too! Gotta admit though - never got a coho in August on the Vedder! Up for giving out any lessons with the gear ortho? ;)
