While the Fraser valley is famous for the Fraser river and its excellent salmon and sturgeon fishing, there are alternative fisheries that offer other fish species and angling methods.
On this day, Rob and I made another trip in our back yards and found some good sized bull trout and some beautiful cutthroat trout. Bull trout are a very close relative to dolly varden, of which both are actually a member of the char family – they are mistakenly called trout on a generic basis. At first we were fishing with gear rods and lures for the bull trout, but upon sighting some fish laying against a bank, out came the fly rods. It didn’t take long to figure out that you had to fish for them specifically by sight and entice them with the fly. On this occasion, Rob found the olive wooly bugger seemed to provoke both bull trout and cutthroat trout into biting. The day turned into an exciting afternoon of searching for trout and watching them take the casted fly!
I was fishing a type 6 full sink while Rob fished a type 3 sink tip. It was readily apparent that Rob’s set-up was exactly how the fish liked it.
The photos will tell the rest, but let it be known, I took the pictures because Rob seemed to be catching all the fish!
