One of the main concerns in the lower section of the Chilliwack/Vedder River is the undercutting of dykes by water pushing directly into it, which can potentially lead to damages and collapses. The pits are not directly used to prevent flooding, but rather to divert or ease the flow where water is hitting straight into the dyke.

Spot closures are nonsense. They won't stop BB-ing. They just makes it less effective. It will still be more massively easier than bar fishing.
Nonsense ? , I think your speaking nonsense . I believe the masses of flossers will give it up , however there will be a few bad apples out . Some will be tying their 5 foot leaders for the fall fishery .....................I'm all for spot closures . Not my first picnic as they say .Or second , on the Fraser .
Remember way back when, DFO requested to stay off Spaghetti bar ? . Started an anchoring frenzy there lol .

Just so you know the videos come up as 'unlisted' which means they are excluded from search results on youtube.com.

They are available via direct links but if the direct links are only at FWR then only FWR people will see them.

They're also here:

Great news as this most likely means the continuation of the Wally Hall Jr. Memorial Steelhead Derby.  This event collects app. 10k annually for salmonid enhancement work on the C-V, some of which is planned to be spent soon on gravel augmentation in the upper river.
Hope this new site works for ya Fred!

Yep, that's what I was thinking. :)

"They are inciting fear among First Nations who are basically be used because they have more political clout than the people on that sail boat."

First Nations as many of us know have a right to be fearful when one looks what we have done to them and there way of life since we arrived on their land, all in less than 200 years, shameful is putting it politely. In many cases the department you work for has, in some of our minds have not done a very good job of looking after our fish stocks, not only here in BC but the East Coast as well.

I am not blaming you and others in the lower parts of the department but those making the major decision have not done the best of jobs as has the governments in power.

One can still hope the new government may be able to right the ship. (Sea Shepard's Martin Sheen)lol but we must give them a chance too.

As you post these recent links you haven't attempted to defend these conclusions or address any of the issues some of us have with them. Why not?  I mean if these recent claims from Morton are justification for this injustice you speak about then you should be able to articulate to me how these claims make sense. Do you agree with Morton's characterization of recent Departmental action towards those commercial fishermen in the article I posted?

Just curious about the hatchery argument because last time I checked ALL where on land not on migratory routes.Am I missing something?
I don't know what you are referring to so I cannot say whether you are missing something or not.
