I would just leave the Vedder alone for another 3 weeks or so, and then head out for some early coho. The reds will all be red. Really red. They got this far, just let them do their thing. Any one that you may catch in that condition is pretty much dead after the fight, and that is just a shame and a waste. :wink:
In my experience fishing is slow right now. That being said, the occasional bright fish is taken in August. While camping on the river a couple years ago toward the end of August, we went fishing one evening for a couple hours before dark. My buddy landed a 12 pound chrome marble flesh spring on roe, I caught two small rainbows and about a 2 lb dolly varden on the fly rod, epoxy minnow pattern.

Thats an awefully heavy fly rod don't ya think? lol :lol:
i went to the vedder last week checked out behind the store went down the trail to the umm river or should i call it a creek werent much water there at all i walked across might have been 6-8 inches deep figure we need some rain to bring it back up a bit ohhh and i put out a fire too some dumb a$$es left it burning low i think they partied there the night before left there dixie cups layin around half melted :evil:
redwolf-I think you mean the rod is an 8 foot 7 weight rod. This is a designation adopted by the AFTMA (American Fly Tackle Manufacturers Association ?) to describe the strength of the fly gear in relation to other set-ups. A 7 wt. can be used to land springs, but it usually takes quite a lengthy battle to do so, and that really isn't in the best interests of any fish you are going to catch and release. It is a fine weight rod for almost anything else you might encounter tho'.
