Nicomekl River

Nicomekl River

The Nicomekl River springs from ground in Langley BC around 240th. The river then runs though surrey then dains into Mud Bay by Cresent beach. The Rivers total length is 34 kms and is fishable downstream of 208th with many access points. Thereis a Hatchery to help the Salmon fishery on this river which is %100 volunter run. The best fishing on this river is for Coho Salmon which avredge about 5lbs and are best caught in the fall. There are also a good population of Cutthroat trout is here which are small but give some variety of fishing. Altho in small numbers there are also Steelhead, and Chinooks in this river aswell. Thr best method for fishing this river is by casting spoons and spinners. For the Cohos K-wobblers work wounders with a slow retrive in silver or gold while blue fox all silver or silver blade with blue or green body work good aswell. Make sure to check the regulations on this river before you go out as it does change often.

Rachel and I decided to try out the Nicomekl River today since its so close to home and offers some good Salmon fishing. We headed over to 184th and walked downstream a bit to where the river got a little wider and deeper. The tide was incoming so we figured some fresh fish would be rushing the system. i started the day casting spinners while Rachel was casting spoons. I caught a nice little cutthtoat with a bluefox gold spinner with a red blade. Rachel then caught a nice hatchery 5lbs Coho Salmon with a k4 gibbs k-wobble silver plated. It was still chrome with just a nice red streak on it, very nice looking fish. An hour later I caught a 4lbs wild Coho with thesame k4 spoon Rachel was using. For such a small city river i was suprised to see how well the Coho fishing is doing.
