Its never to late to catch some trout!! LOL. Yeah I kinda figured it would still be a little fast. But then again you never know? As for the Stealhead there may be a few in there at this time, or so ive been told.

Hey GTXR, once you get your post count up above 20 you'll be able to see the fishing reports section and you'll get very regular Vedder updates (it's everyone's favourite topic of conversation). So just read some posts, contribute your opinions/wisdom, and you'll be there in no time.

Ok thanks for the heads up!! Im just getting back into hucking feathers so the Vedder is a good place to start. Especailly since i can walk to it from the house :)

I have been hittng it all week with the 8wt with heavy sink tips and heavy flies. I am basically wasting my time as the water is ripping down there so fast it is difficult to get a half-decent presentation.
Even once it starts to drop I would suggest maybe hitting one of the many lakes in the region for trout rather than targeting the steelhead smolts in the Vedder..

how long do you think we should wait before going to the vedder?

If it keeps dropping like this.... probably Saturday will be ok, especially in the upper (as far as clarity goes). Next week the river should be low enough for the fly, that is if the weather co-operates and if the snow melt is almost done so that the river keeps dropping instead of coming up again.

Right now there are only smolts mostly, I would be surprised if you ran into a kelt. Fast sink tip line would probably work best as it flows pretty fast, and a 8 wt or more would be good enough.

This may be a dumb question but what is the lightes Wht rod set up you guys would use on the Vedder? As well as line poundage?? Everyone seems to agree with around 7-8whts but what about something lighter?? Or are you just asking for trouble??

When it comes to rod selection the reason for heavier rods for steelhead and salmon is 2 fold. One so you can get the fish in, 2 is so you can get it in quick enough not to overstress it. If you are going for small trout thn use what you got, but if you are going to target steelhead ro salmon best to have something in the 8wt or more class, depending on rod action. I'm thinking of heading out this saturday, and will be swinging an 8wt. with tips, as far as line goes about 3ft or so of 16lbs.
