Goin to the Vedder this weekend and I was curious on what to bring. Is it worth trying to cast a fly or is it still way too busy? If I bring my fly gear, where would a good starting point be?

Any input is appreciated

Gear if u want a good chance at a coho, fly if u want chums and springs! U know where the keith wilson bridge is, above that is the baileys bridge, and above that are some runs with a couple deep slot, 4.5-6 feet deep. The coho, springs, chums are sitting in those! The dirt road runs ontop of the **** so u can get to it really easy! I saw a guy pull a ok lookin 40 lb spring out of one of those slots, it was on fly gear! The river has some colour to it now, so slightly brighter patterns will probably work! Good luck! :D

So what bridge is bellow the baileys bridge, there's two within a half a km of each other? What ever, the runs above the bridge will produce fish for sure!

There is the highway bridge, KWB, bcr bridge, vedder crossing bridge, tamihi bridge, and another one above the hatchery.

The bridge below the KWB is the freeway. The closest bridge upstream of KWB is the railway bridge, then nothing till Vedder Crossing.

Hey, WW, I appreciated your initial answer, and I know the spots you advised the inquirer to go. I am visiting family in Toronto right now, visited the probass shop in Vaughn yesterday...the fishing department told me lots of stories of steelhead currently being caught in Lake Ontario river mouths. but all were quite envious of our coastal fisheries in BC.
I expect the fly would be successful at the Harrison/Fraser confluence as the water cools and rises...I hope to be there in a couple of weeks.
