Another vid I filmed, if I missed posting any here they are on my youtube channel. I see FOC's Mike Fraser has subscribed to my channel. Preparing for the Dec.1 court case I guess. ::) The Fraser Valley Salmon Society will be contributing to the cases too too.  Amount to be determined at our October 8 meeting. The FVSS is considering setting up a Go fund account to raise funds for those may want to help. Stayed tuned for that please.

@dennisk - what rod are you using. I find that if I use a rod that is rated quite heavy (e.g. Shimano Technium), there is a higher risk of breaking off lighter leader. I observed this fishing for springs in the summer where I found that 10 lb Seaguar would break easily if I'm not careful, while with 12 lb, I can really put the boots to the fish. On the other hand, with my Sage 2106 (which has a much lighter tip than the Technium), I can easily land 10+ lb coho on 8 lb flurocarbon.

I'm still leaning toward checking your knots, but the rod can be a factor.

As stated above if your running 10 lb leader and your rod is rated 15-25lb you’ll break off everytime.
Stay within the rod specs and you’ll be fine.
Also if you leave your florocarbon leader in the sun, this will weaken it

Those fines are far too small. Maybe $750 was a deterrent back when the law was written but it's certainly not anymore.

River was mud this morning when I went and cleaned up some garbage in the Canal stea. I wanted to do more as i am away for the Sunday cleanup but got hit by a rain storm and got a bit wet. Are any of you attending the cleanup? Info on the Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society website.

Anybody noticed the Test Fishery is showing a lot more fish compared to the last few years?  Could this be a rebound year?

I have seen A LOT of Chun in the Canal over the past few days. The last few years I shpuld wouldn't see a Chum at all till mid October if at all. Over the past two days I've seen schools of Chum swimming around. I'm up on the casting deck of my boat and can see a lot. Just the other day I saw 4 Chum out in from of a massive school of Coho being chased by a seal. BTW at least 3 seals are permanently setup around Barrowtown. They are feeding hard and spooking any fish that swims up. Its be a challenge to find a willing participant to bite my line. The seals just Chace the fish around in a circle and they end up rocketing up river.

Also, i have seen Chum thrashing around in the sloughs on the north Fraser side already. Seems a few weeks early to me.

According to the district, the contractors may face fines of up to $750 for violations of the watercourse protection bylaw and parks regulation bylaw.

Small change, a.k.a. the price of doing business.
Until the district adds at least 2 zeros to the maximum fine and really enforce it, nothing will change and the complete and utter disregard for the resource will continue.
