Shore Fishing for Salmon on the Fraser River, BC

Today we’re on the shoreline of the Fraser River in British Columbia. I’ve never fished for salmon on the Fraser River before, and I’m glad you can join me today.

The Chinook salmon run is pretty much over, but there are still a few opportunities left to get into coho and chum salmon.

For using artificial baits while fishing for salmon, I prefer to run a spoon, such as the python darter; crankbaits, like the misty minnow or the American smelt; or spinners. Today I’m lucky enough to run a prototype spinner from Thundermist Lures.

With this spinner, I’ll be giving it a nice slow retrieve from the shoreline. The flash and fluttering of the blade should work in enticing a salmon hit.

I’d also like to point out that it’s not early in the morning, but rather mid-afternoon. The time of day doesn’t matter as much for two reasons. It’s tidal water (incoming tide) along with scattered light rain showers and overcast skies.

We’re also running with barbless hooks today.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
