    Very low water this year. Will be tough for some boats to launch at Pritchard in a few weeks.

    with the current water levels, Iíd be pleasantly surprised if we got a salmon season on the south thompson.

    On that note though that might not be a bad thing If boats canít launch there since you usually just get a bunch of entitled assholes anchoring off the Pritchard bridge and blocking shore fisherman and other boats from moving through slowly. Have seen it each year Iíve fished Pritchard and it pisses me off.

    water is a bit low for this time of year,,,,,water level right now is about the same as water level at end of August from past years,,,as long as water temps dont get too warm the fishing should be awesome again this year,,,,,i soooo want to get into the pink salmon,,,really hoping we get an opening again this year

    are pinks just flossed like sockeye, or do they take bait like chinook? There hasnít been a pink run since I took up salmon fishing.

    Pinks will bite almost anything pink. Pink crocs are great, pink rooster tails, pink worm/grub under a float, etc.

    My son and I have been doing well at it considering that we're rookies when it comes to river fishing, been doing well on the N Thompson and Clearwater rivers.. thanks for the tips earlier this year, and all the best on any salmon fishing endeavors..

    Pinks are very aggressive,,,,as rule of thumb,,,,,anything pink for the pinks,,,,,they alot smaller than chinook,,,,average between 3-7 lbs,,,,,we had opening for pinks 2 years ago here in kamloops,,,,and it was a blast,,,,,2 years ago where allowed 2/day,,,,,i caught them on pink crocs,,,,,and blue fox spinners with either pink or red on the spinners,,,,you can tell when run is coming through because they like to surface alot,,,,like when a school of sockeye comes through,,,,,fish the pools and eddies,,,,basically anywhere out of direct current,,,every odd year is the pinks main big migration,,,,its definately worth trying out,,,for all ages,,,,perfect for kids to get hooked on salmon fishing
