Rockn Ron’s Friday Fishing Report

Hello everyone, It’s gotten a lot colder all of a sudden, but fishing is still good in the Fraser valley for those that want to brave the elements.  While the Vedder is slowing down for coho, the north side of the valley is still seeing fresh fish.  This trend usually extends to the end of November.

Chrome late run coho.

Fraser River tributaries to check out are the Stave, Nicomen slough/ Norrish creek, Harrison /Chehalis, Maria slough and many of the Fraser back channels between Chilliwack and Hope.

A beautiful cuttie with full fall colours.

The Squamish / Cheakamus systems will be starting to ramp up for the winter trout fisheries, think egg patterns ,sculpins and flesh flies.  Check out our previous blog post for more info on fishing egg patterns.

Guide flies…if you would like some custom tied flies please feel free give us a call at the store.

For those of you willing to venture a little farther afield it’s also a great time to be checking out the Sunshine Coast for searun cutthroat trout. Rolled muddlers and other small steamer patterns are the ticket.

Hand picked selection of coho and cuttie flies for the fall.

That’s all for now!

Tight lines and dress warm,

Ron and the rest of the PA gang!
