Ike (the fishing Boxer) & Paul on the Fraser River
This river can be tough. There are not loads of fish in the public sections, but here and there where there is good holding water you will find some good size browns. Ike and I fished it today (7/21/2010) and we caught 3 over 16 along with a few smaller fish. I hooked one over 20 but lost him on a snag in the river. They were all taken on nymphs bumped along the bottom. A flashback pheasant tail was the best producer followed by a green caddis rockworm tied in a Czech nymph style. I used a three fly rig with a heavily weighted copper Copper John as the center fly. It was overcast with occasional showers but there was no surface action. I had to quit early as the river grew more and more discolored.
