Hey guys, i know that a lot of you guys fish the Vedder quite a bit in the summer. Im just wondering if it is as packed and horrific as people say it is, with fist fights and threats because someone accidentaly crossed another guys line or whatever. With the openening a bit over a month away, is it worth heading all the way out to Chilliwack, or should I just stick to the Stave? Just wondering what other people think about it. Is it really worth it?
:confused:

If your line is in the water then it's always worth it. ;D The crowds on the Vedder are pretty tame compared to fall. One reason is, most of the masses have gone over to the Fraser to participate in the summer havoc. Usually by the 2nd week of July things are in full swing. You'll get company in the usual runs, but if you're willing to move around a bit there'll be pleny of great water to fish. All depending on water levels of course. ;)

Finder ;)

Do you catch many springs in the stave? I live 10 mins away and don't fish it that often.The vedder in the summer is a dream. Alot of people don't fish the reds because they are so hard to find and catch.I have come across maybe 3 fisherman on some days.But this year is different with the fraser. Think it is going to be too high to access by foot till at least the end of july maybe well into august depending on how fast the snow melts so guys are going to target the local rivers more.

im not sure about springs, i think ive heard of a few in there but if there are i dont think they show up in that great of numbers. it has a pretty solid coho and chum run, thats what i target towards the end of summer through the fall. good fishing then.

what type of gear do you use in the vedder? wool, spoons... stuff like that? info would be nice. thanks.

so weve got two people saying its worth going to. how about the rest of you? theres the harrison and vedder/chilliwack, but are there any other rivers besides the cap that are good for chinook/coho. anyone ever fished the lower pitt?

Opening day can be really busy depending on where you go. The last time I went out on opening day though, I didn't see that many people around at all. Mind you I didn't see any fish either, maybe they knew something I didn't. :-[ This year with the high water though, I would expect the Vedder to be busy, but I would also hope that the high water will help with some better early fishing. There are a couple spots that take a nice long walk to get to, they look great so I am hoping that there won't be to many people around. I will be, and already am chomping at the bit to get out there though. Have some new gear I want to try out.... :happy:

Roe and wool that is all I use for vedder reds. The stave gets a small run of springs. I've hooked a few seen a few monster reds in the 40 + class post spawn.I think it is an early spring summer run cause the boots i've seen are around the same time the coho and chum enter :peace:

Got my first spring ever on the Stave last fall also saw another foul hooked.
It took a long time to hook it as I had to keep on reeling in and releasing all the scummy dogs.

Was that a red or a white? I think the reds are the wild stock and the whites are the hatchery stock. Anybody pls correct me if I am wrong.

Vedder reds are Quesnel river stock or Bowron river stock and whites are the infamous Harrison stock.
