Brief but fast fishing in the Tidal Fraser

Published on September 18th, 2008 by Rodney

What should people fish for when the Vedder is dirty? You guessed it, northern pikeminnows! Grin

After enjoying some cod and chips at Pajo’s yesterday, we made a few casts at Garry Point Park and briefly connected with a few fish but none made to the water surface. Cry Today we decided to venture back slightly earlier to catch the flood tide. The 1/8oz green blade spinner did its wonder once again. Nina brought a fish in on her second cast at the first location. At the second location we brought two fish in within a short span of time. The third fish even leaped soon after hook-up, which is rather unusual for a pikeminnow. We finished the brief outing at the entrance of the park, where I managed to connect with a chrome bull trout, but it fell off the hook near shore just before the camera was ready. Cry Water clarity is very good for spinning. It is an exciting time to be spinning in the tidal portion of the Fraser River, as there is the possibility to find a pikeminnow, cutthroat trout, bull trout and jack salmon at the end of your line.
