    Notes:

    Barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal waters of British Columbia. This includes all species of fish in the Fraser River.

    The term “hatchery marked” means a fish that has a healed scar in place of the adipose fin.

    Sport anglers are encouraged to participate in the voluntary Salmon Sport Head Recovery program by labeling and submitting heads from adipose fin-clipped Chinook and Coho salmon. Recovery of coded-wire tags provides critical information for coast-wide stock assessment. Contact the Salmon Sport Head Recovery Program at (866) 483-9994 for further information.

    Rockfish Conservation Areas are closed to all fin fishing. Descriptions of these closures, and other recreational fishing information, can be found on the
