Going to try to Fraser for the first time tomorrow for Springs. Plan on launching at Island 22 in my 1448 Alumacraft Jon with 25 hp Yamaha. Can anyone advise me on where to find a decent bar to try some fishing that won't be too crowded? (everyone can laugh now) I have a 10.5' Converenge Medium Action rod but I think it will be too light for throwing 16-18oz weights so I will likely pickup a heavier action rod today somewhere (advice? want to spend less than $100 for the rod). Other than that this will be a new experience for me, I am primarily a lake fisherman so I am excited about the Fraser - I will also use extreme caution as I understand this river is very powerful and dangerous with many huge logs and hidden rocks/sandbars.
