just wondering what would be good for tackle on vedder. I tried a bit of red wool, a floater, a little bit of weights, and a barbless hook. At least i'm out there trying.Is there any other ladies out on the vedder that fish?

The setup in your first post is what alot of people use. Make sure the the weight is close to the bottom but not dragging the bottom. For bait other than wool alot of people use prawns and roe.

vedder

Right now I would fish dark red wool or roe sacks. Enough weight so you feel it hitting the rocks. And I like about a 20" leader so it stays close to the bottom.

I don't think there are a lot of springs in the river yet. The best way to tell is "fishermen" When the fish are there so are the crowds.

Which area are you fishing? I find springs like to rest in the quiet pools before moving on.

DOnt let you weight hit bottom, you will get snagged to much and be called a "flosser" all you need is to be with in 1 foot to 3 feet of the bottom with roe, or roe bags or red/oarange wool mix, make it look like roe the best u can. In the upper river if your hittin bottom then you will get snagged up. Spring have to be one of the most agressive fish in the river, thy will moce to get your offering. unlike other species were you have to get it 10 inches from there face.

my wife is also a "fisher person". She has learned lots in the last few years. One of her friends also fishes the river. Many women sit on the sides and watch the men.. just budge your way right in there.. dont be shy.
Fishing is a great thing for everyone... you'll see more and more women getting into the sport soon.
You should really try fishing the Fraser later on for sockeye.. you'll love it.

good luck!
