Fraser River: tidal and non-tidal: The snow melt from the north has made the turbidity very high. Tough to hook anything right now but Sturgeon angling has picked up!
Chilliwack/Vedder: is rising quickly, no gravel bars in the lower canal, but fish will hold there and remember the Kelt are aggressive at this time. Use bait – dew worms, krill shrimp egg sacks with a corky in front, cray fishing will get good now – chicken soaked in cod liver oil works well in your trap. Find slow moving 3-4 feet deep areas with structure in it.
Harrison: Cutthroat fishing is now getting really great due to Fry migration. Minnow and Fry imitations are your best bet as well as single eggs.
East and West Harrison are not being stocked any more. Elbow; Grace and Wolf are done!
Kawkawa is great right now for Kokanee – troll dog tail flashers accompanied with wedding bands or pink hooches. Angling best at 15-30 feet.
Barnes; Morgan; Six Mile; Stump; Monty and White Lakes are ice free with many of the others lakes coming ice free quickly.
Good Luck and Be Safe!! This will be my last report for awhile due to surgery. Darien and Elaine will be keeping the reports afloat!!
