BC Harrison River Coho Salmon Fishing …
Well we’ve returned from our trip up North and now we’re down on the Harrison River where we’ve been having a great time fishing for these wild Coho salmon! What a blast … it is unreal … it’s just like fishing rainbow trout in Kamloops lake from shore but with a hundred times the fight!!!!!! 😀
When we first got here you didn’t even need a lot of gear – you could catch them with spinning gear and spoons! But over the last couple of weeks the Coho fishing has slowed a bit and it’s been pretty tough to get them on spoons, but people are still catching a few fish on them.
The other method being used successfully is drift fishing with floats and pencil lead … but I think we’re going to have a specific post on this topic sometime in the future so I’ll leave it at that for now. 😉
The last two times I went out, I hooked into 2 nice chromers but lost them both. 🙁 Hopefully I get another crack at it before it dies right off. Oh well, and even if I don’t I’ve already had a bunch of great days on the water so I really can’t ask for anything more!
What a great trip!
