Subject: FN0641-Salmon: Area 29 and Region 2 - Management Measures to Protect Thompson and Upper Fraser River Coho

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The following measures will be implemented to protect Thompson and upper Fraser
River coho and to provide selective opportunities for Chinook and chum.

Fraser River Tidal Waters downstream of the CPR Bridge at Mission

Effective 00:01 hours Tuesday, September 2, 2008 to 23:59 hours Friday, October
3, 2008:

You may not fish for coho salmon.
You may not fish for sockeye salmon.
You may not use bait when fishing for salmon.

You may selectively fish for the following species:

- Chinook salmon, the daily limit is four (4) per day, only one of which may
exceed 62 cm.
- Chum salmon, the daily limit is two (2) per day.

Fraser River - above Mission

Effective 00:01 hours Thursday, September 4, 2008 to 23:59 hours Monday,
October 6, 2008, in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from the CPR
Bridge at Mission, BC upstream to a line drawn between two triangular white
boundary signs located on opposite sides of the Fraser River approximately 3 km
upstream of the confluence with the Harrison River (downstream of Jesperson's
Bar):

You may not fish for coho salmon.
You may not fish for sockeye salmon.
You may not use bait when fishing for salmon.

You may selectively fish for the following species:

- Chinook salmon, the daily limit is four (4) per day, only one of which may
exceed 62 cm.
- Chum salmon, the daily limit is two (2) per day.

Note: An "adult chinook" in this area is defined as being over 50 cm except
from September 1 to December 31 when an "adult chinook" is defined as being
over 62 cm.

During this critical migration timing for Interior Fraser coho, the
recreational community is requested to fish selectively when fishing for
chinook and chum. The first principle of selective harvest is to avoid
catching non-targeted stocks. This means that anglers are requested to use
angling methods that do not catch sockeye or coho.

NO FISHING AREAS FOR SALMON BY DATE

Effective 00:01 hrs Thursday, September 4, 2008 until 23:59 hrs Monday, October
6, 2008, in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from a line drawn between
two triangular white boundary signs located on opposite sides of the Fraser
River approximately 3 km upstream of the confluence with the Harrison River
(downstream of Jesperson's Bar) to the Highway No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC, you
may not fish for salmon.

Effective 00:01 hrs Saturday, September 6, 2008 until 23:59 hrs Thursday,
October 9, 2008, in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from the Highway
No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC to the confluence with Sawmill Creek you may not fish
