Considering that there are d.f.o. notices on atlantics posted at various spots on the vedder,I totally think its possible. The fish farms in the ocean are not that far of a swim
Are you talking about the posters advising of clipped Cultus Lake sockeye?

I have seen this before and also the supposition about Atlantics not competing well with Pacific Salmon  BUT that trial was way back when the rivers were all full of fish.    Now many rivers have lots of empty space and there might be room for Atlantics to take hold.
Laboratory studies have also shown Atlantics to be much less aggressive than Pacific species.  A few years ago UBC researchers penned together Atlantics and coho at DFO's Cultus Lake Laboratory.  If memory serves the coho kicked the crap out of the Atlantics.  Perhaps Mykisscrazy can add a few details.

I noticed an old notice re: atlantics, was still up just behind the OTW store last time I was up. Used to be several others up by Alison and up at Ranger.

finding your limits is fun, it can also be VERY painful.

I saw a couple of Atlantics caught in the Fraser up by Hope by sockeye fishermen about 7 or 8 years ago, they are not that rare in our rivers.
