It's been spotty down the lower end, saw six or seven last night over the course of a hour on the bailey bridge. If we get a couple good days of rain watch out things will turn on. thinking about snorkling from lickman to the bridge of sun if the weathers nice enough.

Across from Lickman ( @ campground) has a really nice pool, as well as just below Lickman by the 4km marker...Have fished Peach road a little, however there is not much space to fish and land if you know what I mean :wink: The river looks perfect other than the fact that there are few fish as of yet...snorkeling would be a great idea...tight lines boys....and if the Vedder doesn't produce for ya, Laidlaw has been really productive over the past week or so...

fished yesterday from 11:00am till 6:00pm.
began below rock quarry, moved to vedder campground, railway bridge, to where the powerlines cross. lots of great looking water, {not the stuff that fell from the sky around 4pm!} no fish.
only saw 3 or 4 others fishing all day. was nice to get back out on the river though. they're coming though, and I'll be ready!

I stopped in at the tackle shop at Whatcom Road this afternoon, they claim the river has been really slow with few fish showing up so far and the juice was not worth the squeeze.

Had a report from my buddy that he was fishing just up from where the sumas enters the vedder, short floating(2-4 feet) roe on a size 2 hook with a Drennan float. he lost 2 springs and landed 1 18 pounder. he said he had all his fish took his hook early in the morning to when it starts getting hot then they seemed to just not care. he also mentioned that his size 2 hook was not making sufficient hook-ups with the fish so he is going to try a 3 or 4 in a couple days when he gets back from the similkameen. he also mentioned the water came down a inch or 2 today while he was fishing. LAST THING, he warns that the trout just demolish the roe on the hook if you fish the slow low water. He was throwing his offering in the faster water were the most flow was and they did not seem to bother the roe. tight lines in going up in the next few days and will post my report.

PS; he also mentioned that the main bar at Keith Wilson is getting ready for fishing.

Why don't fisheries just close this piece of water from just above the bridge to 1/4 mile below....All the snaggers will once again set up camp in the area once the salmon arrive in numbers and the usual idiots will be using gear that would never touch a salmon in any other spot in the river....I don't get it!..................Ortho
