Fresh Water Report April 29th, 2017
Trout fishing has been favourable as of late. Trout beads, Sculpin patterns and streamers are all good bets for those fly fishing. casting spoons or float fishing with 4 inch white worms or artificial single eggs are good bets.
The baitban has been lifted effective Oct 31,2016. The Cap does recieve a run of Winter Steelhead but numbers vary year to year.
Fishing for Cutthroat in the upper river back channels is a great way to spend a day! you will find fish in these back channels year round. Fly fishing with small nymphs, mini leeches and muddlers are good options through the Winter. casting small Gibbs 3/16 ounce Crocs and Vibrax Spinners are good options for those gear fishing.
Dollie fishing can be good throughot Winter and Spring. Bar fishing with single eggs, Roe and Worms is effective... if water clarity is good casting spoons and spinners is a good bet as well.
Sturgeon fishing has picked up this last week. Eulichons will be the best bait choice as they are migrating through the Fraser and will be the Sturgeons main food source through Spring.
Effective may 1st until June 30th the Vedder/Chilliwack is open to fly fishing ONLY.. from the Vedder Crossing bridge down stream. The waters above the bridge will be closed to all fishing
Cutthroat trout and Steelhead are the main spieces to target through the Winter months.
Reports have been few and far between, last year was an exceptional year for Steelhead so hopefuly this season is as good as the last.
Reports have been slim. this system best fishes during a highwater rise.
Roe sacs, rubber worms, Colorado blades, Prawns and marabou jigs are all good bets.
