Get ready for the Vedder fall salmon fishery

Published on August 22nd, 2008 by Rodney

Fresh hatchery coho salmon (identified by the absence of the adipose fin) such as this one are common on the Vedder between September and November.

It is that time of the year once again. The temperature is steadily dropping, rain is falling occasionally, leaves are turning yellow and salmon are arriving. The Chilliwack/Vedder River system is the most heavily used recreational salmon fishery in British Columbia, but it also yields a very large return of salmon due to the Chilliwack River Hatchery. Although it may get crowded, good salmon fishing experience can be had with some exploration. Three pacific salmon species are targeted between September and December – Chinook, coho and chum salmon. Each year, I put together a guideline for those who want to give the Vedder fall salmon fishery a try. This year we will once again provide river level updates on a regular basis.
