    Yes but those aren't BC hatchery fish.....BC/Canada don't seem to care about the hatchery concept going on south of us.

    Suit yourself - In the "Restrictions" sections, it says "Individual species limits also apply." Yesterday's FN placed limits on Chinook.

    The Fisheries Notices are the variation orders to the website info. They take precedence over the basic regulations.

    Given the state of things now, what are our alternatives to fish for? Maybe steelhead or something in the Fraser or bottom fishing in the G.S.? I'm not familiar with fishing other than trolling for Salmon. Any offers of advice would be appreciated...

    I had to row my 19 footer in on a 3' tide last year. I would avoid low tide for sure.

    I would guess you need 1. 5 m minimum . Below 1 I paddle m 21 ft flat bottom to barely get it on the trailer

    As a member of the uninitiated - what does this mean?

    It means there are gill nets in the Fraser scooping up the very fish we have been shut down to protect.

    Why is this even a surprise?
    Dfo’s announcement said “limited FSC opportunities will be provided “
    This is just the beginning of the FSC season. Wait until it gets in full gear.

    What I find interesting with the DFOs decision, is they are really just protecting the WA state fish. At this time of year (April through May) we are really just intercepting States bound fish. Then in mid/late July when we are allowed to start to retain, we are actually catching our local stock...makes no sense to me...if anything, allow us to retain early season and then tighten up come July/August...also shut down the river and all commercial :)

    This weekend I had to button up my home renovation, so won’t be out, but pending the winds, I’ll be heading out Friday night and Saturday day; planning on fishing Thrasher...so anyone out that way this week, please let us know how it’s going over there.
