    Just got an update from DFO and the Fraser River Albion test fishery results have resulted in an adjustment in an estimated abundance of 4-2 and 5-2 Chinook to between 45,000 and 85,000 and this results in a zone 2 management action. Translation....1 wild Chinook with no upper size slot beginning either this weekend or the Father's Day Weekend. Great news again this year and the timing couldn't be better!!! This means more fish are expected to return now than was expected last year.

    Thanks Profisher. Good news, and makes sense given the many mouth to mouth reports out there that aren't making the forum. Things have been good.

    WOW! This is great news for SVI and all the rec fishers, guides, tourism and rec fishing supported businesses in the area! Now we have more stability in the regs. and access to some bigger fish.

    A big thank you to South Vancouver Island Anglers Society (SVIAC) for all the work they did for the rec fishing sector to help influence the DFO decision on this. All the more reason we as rec anglers and business owners that rely on rec angling need to support SVIAC - it makes a difference.

    It's a pretty effective reg change the way I see it.
    Unless someone is searching for a small fish, it gets a fisherman off the water
    quicker with one fish.
    I would have preferred to see no maximum size and only one unclipped retained
    but it's a start

    How does this differ from last year at this time?
    Agree with craven, hoping for 2 chinook any size, one marked and one unmarked.
