Since the vedder is no secret ::) ::) thought some would appreciate some porn. Its the first time I've hit the vedder since late steelie season, so I was planning to do some scouting. Found some nice runs. Even the the water levels were dead low I wish the vedder would keep its colour. *wishful thinking* Well I didn't wanna fight the weekend warriors, I decided to use some of my sick hours ;) Hit the flow late around 10:00 and fished till about 1:00. hooked into 7 fish. 3 cohos and 4 jacks. Two of the hoes were hatchery but let the coho runt go and kept the another. Even though it wasn't much bigger. Also bonked two jacks and released the two others. Wasn't a bad day. Also educated a few more long floaters with 5+ foot leaders. I think its easier to convert someone when they see u hit fish in the same pool they are fishing especially if they were fishing the hole first light ;D ;D. Short float (good) roe and you'll have success ;D

Beautiful Fish!! (Sunglasses needed - lol) Sounds like you had an excellent day! You never did say what your leader length was? Was is around 2 ft??
hey fishnfvr,

I only fish 10-18 inches roughly. Depending on the current and clarity. Shorter for faster current and murkier water, thus keeps the bait in the strike zone as long as possible. Hope this helps.

mmmroe,
Do you use split shot or pencil lead???
By the way - when I was out today a guy beside me had a 5 ft leader and he told me my leader was too short (about 2 ft) He thought I should make it longer. I left it as is, I definitely did not pull in as many as him - but I did catch a nice red spring and 2 really nice chrome pinks. So I did well anyways even with my 2 ft leader ;)

your 2' leader is fine no need to go longer.

what tecnique would you use for roe in deeper parts of the river (ie mouth of a river, not necessarily the vedder) where it's deeper and goes into the fraser?) Beautiful fish... :thumbup:
Try bar fishing that area with roe. Some people call it plunking. works really well especially for steelhead.

Can somebody clarify something, why is a short leader so much better? I use a slip float with a bobber stop and am able to adjust to water depth very easily.
A short leader will be better for detecting bites. If your leader is 5 feet long but the current has pushed your hook to be 1 foot from your swivel. That means that the fish would have to run with your hook for 4 feet before you would detect the bite. With a shorter leader 12"-24" there's less of a chance that the current will cause your leader to get looped up.
