Did your buddy call this into the RAPP line??  It is fine and dandy to post pics on this site, but stuff like this needs to be reported.  For instance, talking to my brother this week who lives in the Okanagan, and the C.Os in that area were able to catch a guy who had poached a mule deer buck and then just left it. From information they were able to gather they have now charged an individual.  So I hope your friend called this one in because this is just wrong on so many counts.

I was told there was some clipped Cultus Lake Sockeye in this mix as well, can you confirm this?

I was told FOC was informed and was right on it.

Yes, my buddy reported it to the DFO and to Fred's. At Fred's they said they heard about it and reported it several days earlier and abviously nothing was done about it.

Chris, I can't confirm about the Cultus Lake sockeye in this bunch. The guy that took the pic only mentioned coho and chum.
But he said there were scores of fish trapped and he ripped what he could.
I can only tell you that I myself have seen dead sockeye eaten by the gulls on the beaches in early September. Most definitely Cultus Lake brood.
I will be fishing this weekend and definitely ripping all this out if it's still there.
This is bull cupcakes.

Absolutely disgusting. Even more disturbing was that DFO was advised and nothing was done.

this takes the cake, u know what if DFO is gonna do nothing about it, then the public should be able to do something, the guy(s) who set this needs about 20 years on prison.

Fish Assassin I am with you in that DFO if they knew about this earlier should have been on top of it. But obviously  if someone is so brazen that they set out nets to catch their salmon, who knows how long they have been doing this? But I find it hard to believe that no one noticed any suspicious activity in that area. If you are going to carry out a bunch of salmon it is pretty hard to conceal. You think someone would have taken down information about the person, the make of vehicle and the license plate. I sure hope it is not because people don't want to get involved, because if that is the case with goofs like this running around, the prospect for the future of salmon fishing does not look very bright.

We need to find these guys and the breakin guys and hold their heads underwater for about 10 minutes.  If you suspect someone is doing something illegal call the mounties right away they are more plentiful than the fisheries guys.

Disgusting as it is, let's not point fingers at FN yet.
Racially based speculation takes us nowhere.

FWIW, why couldn't it be that some FN guy ran into a couple of whiteys who were snagging in the area, gave them $hit, then whiteys leave and come back with a net and set this up to incriminate the FN guy. How's that for conspiracy theory?

Whoever did this will hopefully get caught and get the punishment they deserve.
