Spent the day with a buddy on the harrison. We each caught some chum but no clean ones. A beautiful day on the flow none the less. Lots of people out there and bunch of them were fly fishing ;D Can't wait to get out there again :thumbup:

I was out there yesterday(Sun) not to many people, lots of wind. I was fly fishing and landed and released two wild coho, both pretty coloured up, one pink buck and numerous dogs, most to dark to keep, all released and yeah I said a pink, very red with a big hump!

Hey Woody, that was a Sockeye buck, they hump out as well with a red body and green head, we had half a dozen hit the jigs today as well, very common at this time.

Converted a few more bouncers to jig fishing today as they were astonished by the continous triple and quadruple headers we were having short floating. I carry a bag full of used jigs for just these occassions.

Yep. Sounds like a sockeye buck to me - particularly with a "very red" body. The Harrison is where I hooked my first sockeye on the fly a number of years ago from now. An absolutely beautiful chrome buck that I first thought was a wild coho. Anyway, thanks for the report.

where would be a good part of the harrison to short float maribou jigs from a boat? Sorry for the dumb question, but don't have any experience with this river at all.
Also, what colors typically produce in this system?

Might have been me Woody, but guys on a bar in a North river are many on the river.

My boat has my company in big writing on the side and Lami stickers.

Alot of fresh Chum came through and twas a fine harvest of these once maligned salmon, if you keep the right ones you don't need a smoker ;D.
