A few years ago, during coho season I caught three adipose clipped cultus sockeye during the fall salmon season. Two of them were a bout a km above the Sweltzer creek, but the third was a few km above Tamahi. I was surprised to find it that far up, but have heard similar stories from other anglers as well. Whether they drop back down or not, I would also be curious to know.

 A few years ago ,I got one mid-October above Tamihi too.

It's tuff to compete with gear and bait.  We have a fishing derby at Roche lake every year, I was tired of the old farts and that stupid Ford fender winning every year.

I had to move over to the dark side and troll flatfish and bingo bugs on my fly rod.

But

The only thing in my arsenal that can compete with a fender is "slow death hook" and worm, 30' of 8lb leader and full sink line all the way out.

Others with more experience may help, but in lakes I seem to catch everything with olive green leeches with a bit of weight on the bead. 3-5 ft fluorocarbon leader, type 3 full sink line, either trolling slowly (guessing how deep fish are) or casting letting it sink for a while and stripping.. I'm no pro though.

Hey Kathleen,

I agree with everything said above.  I myself have NEVER had any luck at ambleside or the cap.   Likely due to the fact that I have not put the time in on this fishery.

Keep at er' dont get fed up.   Sometimes you have to donate some gear before you tug some lips :p.

That being said' fly fishing is the most rewarding, challanging' and frusterating thing I have ever taken up.   Youll honestly spend more money/time and mental anguish fly fishing than you will with gear in my opinion.   (Dont let this stop you'  I havent touched my gear rods since I started fly fishing)

Actually I would bet that is indeed a Cultus sockeye, especially as it was adipose clipped.  These fish have been known to wander upstream as far a Tamihi; who knows if they eventually turn around and eventually get into Cultus Lake :-\

Would often meet Eric fishing a certain North Shore River in the late 80s. He had a sense of humour. One time I was out with my brother when he noticed Eric just upstream from us and said loudly look it's Eric Carlise to me. Well Eric heard him and said to us, I should start wearing a disguise. He was hard to miss with that long beard. Dude was a great fisherman. Saw him catch many a fish on a spoon. RIP.

And that roe stained fishing vest and the cork on the fishing rod. I kid him a lot about it. His response was "it's a waste of laundry soap" :)
