Tidal Fraser River - Water clarity has unfortunately degraded over the last few days due to heavy rainfall in the northern part of this province. Despite of this change, it is still clear enough to run a spoon or spinner. Schools of chum salmon have been spotted during the incoming tide. They can generally be caught on a large green or pink spoon. Chum salmon usually swim close to shore so there is no need to cast very far. Look for swirls and finning actions on the surface during a strong incoming tide.
The tidal Fraser River is now closed for sockeye salmon fishing, but remains open for chinook salmon fishing. Please note there is currently a bait ban in effect for the salmon fishery, so roe is prohibited. Spincasting with a large spoon may produce the odd chinook salmon during the incoming tide. All coho, both hatchery and wild, and sockeye salmon are required to be released.
