The Fraser River is the longest river in BC, rising at Fraser Pass near Mount Robson in the Rockies and flowing for 1,375 kms where it finally drains into the Straight of Georgia, Pacific Ocean in Richmond. The river drains fully
1/3 of the province and over half the population of BC live within 50km of the Fraser. The Fraser is the most important Salmon bearing river in the world so treat it with the respect it deserves. The river is home to large runs of Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pinks,
Chum, Steelhead, sea-run Cutthroat, and resident Rainbows, Dollys, Bulls, Pikeminnow, and White Sturgeon so it goes without saying, there are lots of great fishing oportunities here. The Fraser is a huge River tho, so it has its own fishing tequniques
as the ones that you would use on smaller rivers dont work here. Bar Fishing is probually the most common fishing tequnique for catching Chinooks. This method Consists of using a large lead weight, a T-style spreader bar, and a spin-n-glow.
