First time on The Fraser

A buddy and I went fishing on The Fraser today. Iíve never fished it, even when I worked up in winter park. The fish are definately smaller than what Iím used to but it was nice and quiet and not a soul around to bother us. The hike in and out was pain bit it was well worth it.

Nothing like having luck at a new place the first time out. Great browns...thanks for sharing.

I used to fish the Fraser near Tabernash with excellent results. I remember one pool that held a really nice brown in the 3# to 4# class that I always tried for whenever Iíd make the trek across the ďbull fieldĒ to get to the river. There were times when a #12 Adams dry just couldnít be beat, and I used that fly almost exclusively to tie into a few good CR fish.
Itís good to hear the river is recovering after the fuel spill a few years back, and I hope it will continue to do so.
Thanks for bringing back a very fond memory!

Nice, cool to hit new waters and do well.

Yeah it was nice to get fish on a first outing. My buddy fishes it quite a bit so he led us down into the canyon and pointed out some good stretches along the way. We worked back up river hitting those runs. He said it was a bit slower than normal but we were still going fish for fish.

Ski we went to the Tabernash stretch. Amazing area. If you get a chance get back up there. You should. The water seems to be doing well. A little murky but they are in there. Itís nice to see that the wild population is thriving. A couple more years and those fish will be massive.
