Once again a friendly reminder to those fishers who may not be aware of the number of fish/species which may be taken from the Chilliwack/Vedder River system.

For those of us who are diligent in reading/researching and understanding the "fishing synopsis" before we fish a "body of water" let's help educate those on the river who may not have taken the time to do their homework first.

Chilliwack/Vedder River (including Sumas River) Downstream from Slesse Creek including that portion of the Sumas River downstream of the Barrow Town Pump Station to boundary signs near the confluence with the Fraser River.

All Sep 01-Dec 31 Daylight hours only.

Coho Jul 01-Mar 31 4 hatchery fish per day.

Chinook Jul 01-Mar 31 4 per day, only 1 can be over 62cm.

Chum Jul 01-Mar 31 1 per day.

Pink Jul 01-Dec 31 2 per day.


Also be aware of the below information.

Unless otherwise stated in the table, the daily limit in all water of Region 2 is zero (0).

The aggregate daily limit for all species of Pacific salmon (other than kokanee) from tidal and non-tidal waters combined is four (4).

All retained coho must measure 25 cm or more from tip of nose to tail fork, and all retained chinook, chum, pink and sockeye must measure 30 cm or more from tip of nose to tail fork.

A single barbless hook is in effect year round for all streams in Region 2.

There is an annual limit of 10 adult chinook from all non-tidal waters. All retained adult chinook must be recorded on the back of your provincial non-tidal angling licence. An "adult chinook" in Region 2 is defined as being over 50 cm except in: a) the Fraser River downstream of the powerline crossing approximately 1 km above the Aggasiz /Rosedale bridge from Sep 01 - Dec 31, b) the Chilliwack/Vedder River (including Sumas River); the Harrison River and the Capilano River.

- Fraser River: downstream side of the CPR Bridge at Mission upstream to the Alexandra Bridge (except the Landstrom Bar area closures listed below),
- Harrison River: from the Highway 7 Bridge downstream to the confluence with the Fraser River, and

Sport anglers are encouraged to participate in the voluntary Salmon Sport Head Recovery program by labelling and submitting heads from adipose fin-clipped Chinook and coho salmon. Recovery of coded-wire tags provides critical information for coast-wide stock assessment. Contact the Salmon Sport Head Recovery Program at (866) 483-9994 for further information.

Did you witness suspicious fishing activity or a violation? If so, please call the Fisheries and Ocean Canada 24-hour toll free Observe, Record, Report line at (800) 465-4336.

They've increased the limit to 4 pinks. You should also check the online updates, as the supplement was printed over a year ago:
