hit the vedder today.. started at Allison pools were i used a vibrax spinner, i hit 2 springs and didn't manage to land them, i worked upstream by the big rock outcrop were no one else was for a while and got 1 springs in the faster water but did no manage to land him. if u stare down into the deepest part of the rock outcrop at Allison you can actually see the springs. after no more luck we headed down to the usual Keith Wilson bridge. it was weird i head a guy yelling HOLY SHIT on top of the bridge so i go up there and see what the commotion is. i look down into the exact middle of the to bridge structures and there they are. he said he counted 15 but i count 12 huge chrome springs. well i go down about 100 yard downstream to a good looking spot and i see a MASSIVE Spring just pound the water 3 times in the same spot, i cast out above it and let it float down nicely. my bobber would once and a while dip but no fish on. i try more casts in the faster water, this time i add one single egg to the spinner. WHAM. FISH ON, runs over into the trees and i couldn't manage to get the fish out so i try to see Wat's going on happens to Be the fish is gone and I'm snagged on a bush, finally get everything back and sharpen my hook. well anyother man under the bridge who had to leave goes and i take his spot beside one other guy. 1st couple of casts with the spinner still on from the morning i hooked a small sockeye and realease him gently back into the water. everyone knew the springs were right there, casting right by them. no one gets anything. i choose to fish the deeper water were i saw nothing before. so my float is just floating nicely on the angle i like it at and it stops. i reel in and i know this time its a fish because my line was moving so i play him for no time really and loose him. after seeing this people start fishing the water were i was. it got darker and darker no one was getting anything every though they were jumping and there were right in front of our eyes. well one more guy shows up to the crowd. ooh we look who we got ourselves know. THE DENTIST comming down to check our freaking teeth. well were all just casting and one guys bobber goes down fast he reals in and says FISH ON, only it being the bb'ers line attached to his.... well he gets it off and hes like next time ill cut it. so he moves up across from were I'm casting. my float goes down fast also, guess whats on the end of my line. dentists Larry's FLOSS. man i felt like cutting it, but i decided to actuality throw it into a snag area because i didn't want to start a commotion. well he gets the snag off and moves FAR down stream. for the rest of the night, NO action on the rods, the springs were moving through in good numbers but no takes, they would smack the water(probably sea-lice) but thats it. Well thats my report. Also the vedder is the best Ive seen it at this time of year. they cleared out the snag areas and log jams in the bad areas and the river is looking very nice. in a few weeks the chinook should just be pilled in there(I HOPE). I heard of one fish taken at KWB on red and black wool early in the morning, people cleaning out ranger and a few being taken at lickman, other than that nothing. I was using a dink float with 1.5 inches of thin pencil lead, 3 feet leader(adjustable float for the deep holes and a vabrax spinner for most the day. i also tryed wool, ghost shrimp and pro cured roe but no takes.

well boys, good fishing to you all, tight lines and hope the vedder gets better very soon so we can go HOOK UP! FISH ON!

Hey Sam good report.........I sincerely believe there will be more than one "punchup" on the Vedder this summer with the BB's fishing these areas where the fish stack up. I think the next time I head out I am going to take the Video Cam..........you, too might see yourself on Candid Camera!
