Well, perhaps it's time to rename this post to “Good news for Chilliwack steelhead”
Yesterday, at Fred’s store, we met on this subject and had representation from the BC Conservation Foundation, the Chilliwack River Action Committee, the Chilliwack Fish and Game Protective Association, the Fraser Valley Salmon Society, the Fraser River Salmon Table, the Steelhead Society of BC, the BC Federation of Driftfishers, FOC, and the BCFLNR . The outcome was extremely positive, with financial and in kind government contributions promised. Due to the probability of an extended freshet on the Chilliwack that will negate the positive benefits of nutrient enrichment, all in attendance agreed this year it would be best to monitor the effects of no nutrient additions. Having this additional information will improve future funding proposals.
It was good to see all the above groups, along with Fred and Jason, pulling together to make this program continue.
