I must say for a beginner fisherman, the Vedder river in the fall is a fantastic option. Tons of action! Pick a year when the pinks are running and you will not have a shortage of catching and as we know, patience is something that is learned. New fisherman need more action than us veterans. Just explain that fishing isn’t always like a fall day on the Vedder.
I have had some great experiences on the Vedder river over the years. Catching chums might be a hassle to those coho seekers, but they still keep things interesting in between catching coho.
The nice part about fishing the Vedder in the fall is that the fish are throughout the system and you don’t have to fish side by side. Sure some of the rock runs see some good coho fishing and can get a bit crowded but there really is no need to pack into spots.
What are your experiences fishing in the fall on the Vedder? You get frustrated catching chums when you’re just there for the coho?
