The freshwater salmon regulation reads: "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."

The Table in the same regulation reads: "Chinook - Jul 01-Dec 31 - 4 per day, only 1 can be over 62cm."

Question: Do I need to report on my license any Chinook (wild or hartchery?) measuring between 50 and 62cm?

Thanks

So, it looks like that "adult" is defined differently in terms of sizes according to different rivers. In the Vedder river an adult Chinook is one measuring over 62cm, and that's what I need to report eventually on my license. Thanks guys.

Thanks for defining a very confusing definition of an adult chinook on the vedder river. I find it irritating that fisheries did not define this very clearly in their on line regulations.
That's why we are here more, to lear and make things easier. :beerchug:
