    Hopefully you have better luck getting this year return data out of DFO then we did, We were told it would not be available for our fall meeting, what a load of shit.

    we have never been able to get all return data until later .. the fish are still returning spawning in some of the systems.. what stem are u looking for? we have some from some of the system but not all...

    Early Fraser Chinook, Harrison chinook, Considering most years they give in season estimates of these stocks you would think they would have it.

    Hard to say.. I have seen seem numbers from the early fraser chinooks and nothing from Harrison as they would be spawning now but i would think they would have a early number

    As of 11th this is what we have from our area... I don't have the latest one. Obviously Cowichan right now is way better than this at around 13k right now...

    Thanks SV, what i find amazing is DFO stock assessment has all that information out for the Island but won't share anything for the stock that shut down the whole coast like year Early fraser chinook. That have spawned months ago. IMO this is just totally unacceptable.
