Fraser Fishing Sees Bullhead, Squawfish, Carp

Cousin Stacy took Yumi and me out on the Fraser River today. It was sunny and hot, and while the sockeye were running, we didn't catch a single salmon. I struck first with a small bullhead, Stacy followed up with a slightly larger squawfish, and Yumi topped us both with a carp. All the fish were released.

We fished from the boat and we fished from a bar. We bounced various lures along the bottom, we trolled, we spincast... And the salmon skunked us, though we saw several jumping. Hope to try again soon!
