Nice video Rodney.

How far up the Pitt River were you, while fishing?

We started about 10km upstream from the Pitt River Lodge and ended the drift at the lodge.

What rod, reel and line was kitty using?

The rod is a Shimano Clarus 9' spinning rod, rated 6 to 10lb. The reel is a Shimano Sahara 2500.

It may not be worth their while to prosecute, but it's still illegal.


well I know such cases have gone to court and the judge found for the defendant. It will depend on the facts of an individual case if a citation is issued and contested.

There is also a procedure in BC to claim found road kill: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/pasb/road_kill.html

Poor return for sure so far for both sockeye and red springs. Although I found a couple fish  early on in July fishing has since dried up for me and I will not be going out much anymore.

I have video from 3 yrs ago when on one drift i see 4 springs roll.  Finding them was NEVER an issue. Not so much now.

hmm additional evidence; there is a photo; there is genetic evidence and here was a 2nd person there when he retrieved the fish.

Personally I can't see why people get so twisted out of whack over is that illegal or not. I've taken a dying fish myself - legal fish. I'd rather do that than leave it to rot. Didn't take anything over my limit. The fish were dying from visible wounds - bleeding gills. It made a nice meal.

I'd also bet Provincial CO office doesn't see it as worth their while to bother.

"leave it to rot" is probably the most valuable thing you can do with a dying salmon. Feed the ecosystem for the next generation.

Well, I don't know about in Canada, but in the US, a person's confession isn't enough to sustain criminal charges - there must be some additional evidence of a crime.  And the defense would be pretty simple - people tell fish stories all the time.  Now if there was a video . . .
