Vedder River you say? Where the heck is that?
Well, the Vedder River is a fantastic Salmon and Steelhead river located just across the US/Canada border in British Columbia.
It offers fantastic Chinook and Coho fishing. It is not uncommon to hook several large Kings in an outing. My biggest to date is 50#. Later in the year you can catch Kings, Silvers and Dog's all at the same time!!!!!
Catching fish is about as low-tech as it gets. All you need is a float, some egg loop hooks and a little yarn. It's that simple!!!
The one drawback is that access is easy and gets alot of pressure. But, there are ton's of fish and you can usually find a spot to yourself, if you don't mind hiking.
If you would like more information, let me know.

I just returned from my yearly trip up there. The fishing up there will spoil you compared to Oregon. 3 of us landed 100 salmon in 2 1/2 days. We don't buy the retention tags so you can save on the cost of a license. We fished the Vedder river each day and spent most of one day on the Harrison. The Harrison is mainly boat access is about 9 miles long and has 1,000,000 salmon in the fall. We caught coho, chum, pinks, and chinook salmon. There is a series of storms coming in so call first on conditions.

Trust me, the Vedder River is no big secret. Lots of fish and lots of people!!!!
The Harrison is a great river. We did very well on Sockeye on the Frazer River this past August. Rumors were 50 - 100 million Sockeye went up the Frazer this year!!!!!!! :shocked:

Really?

From what I heard, the Fraser Sockeye fishing this summer was a big dissapointment. It was taking up to 4-5 hours for competent fisherman to limit and the inexperienced weren't guaranteed limits. I heard the Chinook fishing was outstanding though.

Last year, it'd take on average 15-30 min to limit. That's good fishing.
