Great vis last night, around 3 feet and looked even better when I drove across the crossing a few mins ago. Like Shane said the water can drop from unlimited visibility to almost nothing in a matter of a couple hours if a big chunk of clay falls into the river upstream. Def worth going out, one of the guys I was with last night (Wookie) got a sockeye on roe. I also hooked a fish for a very breif period of time and lost it. Saw a tone of Springs jumping last night, along with the usual hundreds of sockeye. Def worth going out, the fish are spreading out now and are in the entire system, cover water like in Steelhead fishing and you might be rewarded :peace:

Good Luck :cheers:
Dan

It is called BC fishing reports so asking for one is OK in my books. That said I do not have one to share with you all for the Vedder.

I do however have a good website for you to check out Goran http://scitech.pyr.ec.gc.ca/waterweb/formNav.asp

Scroll down till you find "Chilliwack River at Vedder Crossing" study the gauge after you return from the river and eventually you will learn what the numbers on the gauge mean to fishing conditions. I have found it to be a very usefull tool over the years.

No doubt Fish Freak the weather is great, the high elevation lakes are still producing and the rivers are SLOWLY dropping in to shape. What a great time to be a BC'er and you are correct get out there and enjoy it! :beerchug:

You are right as well Every Day his user name is not Goran, however he often signs off as such. This leads me to believe that it is OK to reffer to him that way. Just like since I often sign off as "Pat" I would be cool with you reffering to me by that name Dan!

Tight lines bros, wherever the wind takes you this weekend. :)

all day is best for me fishing. it really depends on the water you are fishing and whether fish are moving around all day. i have stayed in one spot all day and had fish all day and other days its like steelheading moving around like crazy trying to find some fish :confused: thats why its fishing and not catching :happy:

find a nice deep slot/hole as fish will swim up and hit this type of water and "slow down" or even stop and stay for a rest before continuing. this is the best time to get some hits and be there when they are. hitting a spot with a bunch of "staging" fish could be more frustrating than anything because these fish may not bite therefore driving you nuts :wallbash: especially when you can see them but cant catch one :pissed: (coho are great for this)

Springs are fairly aggressive and will normally bite anything that comes near their face so getting the fly down infront of them is the key :thumbup: heavy sink tip with heavy flies should do the trick. but also bring some smaller sparser flies also :thumbup:

Yep kinda what I thought. THe usuall!! THe longer you fish the more chance of catching something. I just need to get out no matter what the result. NEed practice badly. Kinda hard with a 3yr old though! Hope to some of you out on Saturday morning maybe??

I hooked 1 Spring and 2 sockeye on roe today :thumbup: Tried the shrimp but was getting lots of trout hitting, man those little guys are annoying. My arms were tired from work so I didnt get very good hook-sets today on the fish that decided to bite :'( In one hour I saw 3 Springs hooked (all lost) and 7 sockeye hooked with 5 being landed. Great time to get out, water visi is over 3 feet now, but still probably just under 4 ft. Lots of slots appearing and lots of fish jumping once again. Good time to get out.

Good Luck, Tight Lines :cheers:

I only go out after 6 pm. I started fishing around 7 and hooked all my fish on roe. Sockeye seem to get active and bit anything after around 8 pm. All I can say is fish deep, you want to tap bottom every once in a while.
