I find it frustrating that they use the Mission CPR bridge as a boundry. It should be east of the Sumas. My 2 cents

Opening for Tidal Only, so they prevented bottom bounching  ;D

you joke but haven't measures like this been advocated for by the rec advocacy groups for some now to address some of the DFO's other concerns, as mentioned in some of Rodney's previous posts?

I want to believe the DFO is actually still considering the advisement of the sport sector as opposed to just ignoring them...

Good point.  Hopefully this is a start and may be in the future they can think about leader length recommendations for the Tidal and Non Tidal Fraser.

DFO throwing the sporties a crumb. Extend the opening to include the non tidal portion of the river.

Visibility is about a foot out by the tunnel - not so good.

I stopped off under the Mission bridge for a bit this morning. No risers, no bites, no signs of life.

It's a quick run up the Fraser. This year is just another example of how fast the Pink run is. 13 days or so.

Just returned from the Mission Bridge area. After a late start of 9:30 ish , due to the down pour here and just as things began to lighten up.  Second cast,  fish on !..
I was twitching a pink jig from shore. It was a fresh looking doe with lice still attached with no net marks. I let it go. First fish always goes... males or does. Just my way
15 minutes later switched to a pink w/ white thunderbolt spoon for the extra distance and boom , rewarded with big chunky Humpy male. After a great scrap, Off it went.
 Around 10:30 a  Buddy and his little one dropped by. Two more fish on. The little one to learn how lose those two gracefully. lol  Then things slowed down after that for us. But fish were still being landed up the beach as we were leaving around 1:00pm. Viz was 12"- 16"  not great but still ...
I'd say it was an alright morning.

What time did the tide peak this morning at the Mission bridge? Thanks for the report.
