Fraser River: Tidal and Non-tidal – Sturgeon fishing starting to pick up again with the spring’s warmth! The river is extremely low making the flow faster – May be tough to anchor. Best baits are fresh pike minnows; lamprey eels roe and oolichons.
The Fraser is excellent for trout right now- use single eggs; dew worms; krill and roe.
Chilliwack/Vedder: From top to bottom the river is drastically low! Early morning tactics will work best. Keep your shadow off the water and be quiet! Best baits are single egg’s; ghost shrimp and roe. Keep your choices small even in heavy water – which is where they are sitting.
Chehalis/Harrison: Lower than expected water levels but not impossible to fill your kreal! Use single eggs and deli shrimp.
Local lakes are still producing trout and will get even better after freshet. Cultus Lake is giving up large bull trout. Troll minnow patterns and use bait. If you catch a Bass – Do Not Release back into the lake, call 1-604-586-4000!
Morgan and Six Mile are ice free now but still some ice up high. Use real baits – worms; roe; shrimp and krill.
Reminder to renew your licences and tags so you will stay out of court and keep your privileges!
Reminder: Jim Thorpe and I are planning a fly-tying class for the spring depending on membership interest. Please call and let me know me if you are interested in attending!
