cowichan run numbers
I'm not talking about this year, we all know whats going on there right now [xx(]
But I'd like to know if anybody has numbers on the size of the coho and chum runs the Cow usually gets?
Or where I can find this information for that matter.
Piss pour returns.. Over fishing .. Natives putting nets up .. and a crappy Hatchery program.. = Bad returns
Find some time for some annual Hay Bail tossing off the Silver Bridge![}]
Should make some short work of those FN nets with all this Skywater.
Maybe a Steelhead or two can get through the Gauntlet?
you would think if a river is in trouble with fish returns and is closed 4 a reason .that it would mean everyone . savages as well. [B)]scottyboy
Right on madddog!good idea
Wish i had a couple o bails last thurs when i was drivin over sooke bridge.They're still setting nets right across the river with these low returns\low water conditions for what by now must be scaaaaabbyy boots????????
All I had on hand was a cup of coffee,but I'm pretty sure I missed[[8D
Be nice if someone could fall a nice big log right upstream from 'em. Or push a big root ball in.
shoulda bin like pei years ago
well there should be a lot of nice big logs pouring down the cow now with all the rain.
There should be NO fishing of any kind at all river mouths and in ANY rivers when fish are trying to go spawn! For the love of god.. let the fish f'n SPAWN FOR f**CK SAKES!!!! WHEN WILL WE ALL LEARN..?? WHEN IT'S TO LATE LIKE ALL WAYS.. I THOUGHT HUMANS WERE SUPPOSE TO BE SMART..? STARTING WITH DFO.. VERY FRUSTRATING TO SEE SUCH STUPIDITY...
All fishing should occur at the river mouths and in the rivers.
For the sporty, remember, not everybody has a boat.
For the commercial, if they got rid of the seine fleet and went back to local net pens or fishtraps it would be possible to more accurately assess the runs before harvesting took place. Also you could minimize and/or eliminate bycatch by doing live sorts, by size and species (e.g. separating the steelhead from the sockeye).
