I am going to be heading out to the Vedder next week and I was hoping to get some tackle advice......I want to fly fish with sinking tip, leader, heavy fly combo....no floater or beads or spin cast......is this worth my time and if so do you have fly or sinking line weight, leader length kind of advice.....cheers

I use a multi-tip system (like Rio versa tip). One of my most commonly used tips is a Rio type 6 150 grain (10 wt) tip. I also use the type 6 109 (8 wt) tip but this sinks slower than the 150 grain tip, even though they're both type 6 lines. You'll need a rod with decent backbone to toss this - an 8 wt rod should do fine. The tips recommended by young gun are a good to have with you as well. The tip of choice will depend on the water conditions.

As for leader, I often use 8 lb maxima ultragreen and may go to 6 lb when the water clears and the fish get spooky. I also like to use flurocarbon leaders when the coho get extra spooky. You can go heavier when the water colours - I often use 12 lb maxima ultragreen in the Squish for chums. As for flies, GP variations, leech/bugger patterns, streamers (coho blue, mickey finn, x-mas trees), and rolled muddlers are standard.

the entire section between the Vedder crossing bridge and the train bridge supplies good fishing....I see the most fish caught from above or below fast water sections, or anywhere where the water is deep and dark green, along the bank where the shrubs grow over and create shadows...the coho love to sit here...let me know what you learn as I am also just beginning to enjoy what this river really has to offer!...cheers

I would say if you are fishing for springs keep the leader short 3-4 feet and use mono not flurocarbon. If you are going for coho I would go a little longer (this depends on the vis as well) and consider using fluro.

Always had great success @ the canal. conditions a must, being low & clear
