    Question Best stream/river way to fish a float and roe for coho??

    What's the best float/hook/roe method for catching silvers in streams? I've seen it be the only effective method while nobody else around got anything, but I have yet to discover the exact formula for success with this technique.

    Every bit of info is appreciated, from float styles to leader lengths and hook sizes. Also curious if you run any weight or just let the eggs drift freely under the bobber.

    Thanks!

    In my opinion there is really only one way to float fish and that is with center pin gear.
    But that's just me.
    I just run a large float and some split shot below the float (spread out to about 18"-24" above the hook(the non-removable kind, the stuff with the wings twists your line up)) and a size 2 or 4 Gami octopus style hook.

    Thx drifter....that's pretty much what I went with. Got some center-pin floats today and some smaller gammies. A couple of kinds of "local" cured roe that are supposed to be good.

    We'll see how it goes in the next week or so.
