Definitely we should be closed. There's no Chinook around! This is number 6 today!
I am out at the hump today also one shaker what depth are you at cohochinook?
122 to 132
Called in. She was very nice, but not able to answer my specific questions. She took my name and said she will get the appropriate person to call me back.
The more calls the better everyone!!!!
No chinook around, We better close it! Into double-digits now!
That paid off in a hurry thanks a lot
Man, those pics must be from two decades ago. There’s no fish in the ocean now and the whales are starving.
Looking at those pics when at my stinky workstation really makes it more painful. Did I tell you how I feel about DFO ?
No there's no Chinook in the ocean. This is our latest chinook at Hump! Never seen so many Chinook and thanks to Jonathan Wilkinson we won't be able to fish for them!
Ya pretty crazy best fishing I've seen localy in 40 years of fishing here and none of these fish are Frazer fish 70 percent have been clipped
From those of us who support the WA state hatcheries, you're welcome!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but we can still retain chinook until this page updates: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/tidal-maree/a-s29-eng.html
I think we should all just keep fishing until someone gets fined.
Yes but se Alaska is killing are Fraser fish plus lots of these hatchery fish are Cowichan Vedder Chehalis
Capilano and sea pen fish
Many of us in WA hate the Alaska commercial fishery also. More than 75% of the Columbia River bound salmon never make it past the south end of VCI. Between the Alaska and the WCVI commercial most fish are gone before they hit WA waters. Then on what's left, the tribes and the commercials in WA remove much of that. The recreational guys are fishing on the scraps of the scraps.
Maybe I'm a dummy but in all of this press and on the dfo site I have yet to see a clear statement such as "effective April xx all fishing is restricted until July 14" for example. I haven't checked the dfo site yet today but will shortly....
Still open keep fishing. I'd be at Bowen lol
What a nice fish
Anyone out today? Just making my way out.
