I've been getting mixed advice in terms of the best time to fish the lower Fraser for springs. Some say start at low and fish through high, while others swear by starting at high tide and fishing until low.

Is this more or less a personal preference or a variation of a number of other factors?

Thanks.

I always like to try and fish when the tide is coming in, as it brings the fish in with the tide and fish it through
the high tide, im sure you could fish the high tide till low tide but I think it would be best to hit it on the way in.

Usually on the lower fraser where i fish i dont really look at the tides when i go out cause Im usually out there all day and part of the evening so sometimes i sit there through the tde coming in and out all depends.


My best advice for you is to try fishing it on the way in and fish it till it starts to go out , then one day try the opposite and see what works better for you , everyone will have there own opinion on it becuase some people have better luck on different tides

(Sorry if this doesnt help you any, just thought i would share what I do)

Good Luck !!!!

Outgoing tides from the old Dump bar in Richmond to at least Two Bit Bar.
Got to disagree with you on this one Dave ;D
During coho season we would launch the boat at Brownvilles and fish it on a outflow tide and when it started to back-up we would run down and fish River Road on the in-coming tide. Lots of good spots to fish the lower end on either a incoming or a outgoing tide.
Heres a good tide calendar site to use.

Click on the box to open with Boat Harbour on and scroll down and click on New Westminster and you got the tides for the next 7 days.

Thanks for the posts. I'll do some comparisons, but I'm still gonna stick with the belief that any time on the water is a good time to be on the water. Whether fishing is a little slow it's still fun to be out.
