Went fishing with the wife yesterday on the South Thompson up by Banana Island. I was using roe while anchored. I managed to catch two Chinooks and missed two others. The wife had one on, but it broke her line. The two I got were 19.5 and 18 lbs respectively (both were females).

A lot of boats were out there yesterday, and quite a few were catching Chinooks. The boat next to me caught 6 with 4 or 5 hrs. Gonna go again on Wednesday. I will let you know how I make out.

That's some heavy action Rogue0412, any other gear or just flat off the bottom like the lower Fraser?

One more question if you care to share how deep is the water?

I was using a 4 ounce weight and letting it hit bottom then reeling in 3-5 turns.
The water where I was fishing was between 30-40 feet.

Well, I went fishing again this morning. I got out on the water at 7 am and had my 2 in the boat by 9 am. I had another one on for about 15 minutes but it got off. The only other boat at the Banana Island hole also got his 2 early. He stayed and caught and released 5 others. The fish were still in good shape, one of the ones the other guy caught was fairly dark but still not bad.
There were people fishing off the Pritchard bridge when I arrived at the boat launch and two of them were making there way down to the river with fish on.
The fish weren't hitting as hard as they were on Sunday, but their were more biting.

Regards,

Rogue

FYI.... The regs state for the T "No angling from boats".

I'm fairly new to the area. which parts of the tommy are open.
The Chinook opening ended September 22. Usually every year from August 5th till September 22 (dates may change on short notice) the South Thompson is open for Chinook from where Campbell creek enters the Thompson to the green buoy at the mouth of "Little River" (the river that connects Little Shuswap Lake and Shuswap Lake).
