I just talked to the province. It's an error, they are fixing it.

Still waiting on a jet boat ban above the canal section ::)

(I know, it wouldn't appear in the fishing regs but it's long-overdue!)

looks like a cut and paste error from the Synopsis pdf.

The closure either side of the Crossing is still in place as it was when put in because of people snagging sockeye there last summer.
