There are also First Nations: drift net and beach seine openings right through to November 3rd.

Rec fishing anywhere east of the mouth may be slow for a while.  Rod may be getting lots of company out at Garry Point.

That's good. It has been awfully lonely down there this season. ;D

You wont even see the roe here... it all mostly goes out to other countries that pay big bucks for it. Like Russia ... thatís why there is a market for roe itís not like bc has a huge demand for it.

Why?

I'm glad you asked...

Thompson steelhead migrate up the river at the same time as the chum, peaking around October 17th - the problem is, there were none caught in the test fishery during the migration peak, and for the first time in history, Provincial biologists are concerned there will not be enough fish coming back to re-propogate the run...

Thompson steelhead are bycatch in these chum openings.

Cheers,
Nicole

I also saw the chum fisheries in the Harrison where it meets the Fraser. Probably 50 or so of those big plastic tanks loaded to the rim with chum. Do they smoke these fish ??

"mouth of the Harrison"  ???
When you read the openings schedule you will see that they're all the way up to Hope.

~~~~~~~~~~~

We need to do more than not buy roe.  For the past few months I've been trying to prod the readers of this site into taking some action.
What's it going to take????  The people who make the decisions are influenced by votes.   WE just let a Federal election go by without doing much. 

There's a Provincial election coming and we cannot afford to wait until the week of the election to START.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ???
