I fish it with a little fly rod, but many anglers fish the area with their baitcasters, pins, spinning rods, spey rods...they all work fine, take what you like to fish with the most...

Please note: It will be a gong show sometimes even on weekdays, now with the Fraser Closure coming up it could get even more crowded.

It's a catch and release only fishery this year...

Hope that helps,

rib

Maybe this weekend if I get a chance to get out it won't be so packed as i've heard the last couple weekends. Hopefully the closure will have the crowds showing up on the Fraser for those last minute springs.

Hey Rib, do a brother a favour and pm me that map as well. I will not add to the pressure as i will only get a chance to hit it every September.

Rib, would this be noted on the DFO website? The freshwater salmon regs say nothing. Kinda of like they say you can keep two pinks on the upper fraser right now. :confused:

It's kinda a pain but you have to combine the seasonal regs with the openings and updates section. A quick check online before you head out is a pain, but a good idea ;)

Fishery Notice

Category(s): RECREATIONAL - Salmon

Subject: FN0563-Salmon - Region 2 Non-tidal Squamish Area

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


This is a reminder that the daily limit for pink salmon in the Squamish River,
Ashlu River, Cheakamus River, Mamquam River, Birkenhead River, Elaho River,
Powerhouse Channel and all their tributaries is zero. Pink salmon may not be
retained from these systems. This zero limit is effective for the 2007 year
until further notice.

Conservation measures are currently in place because the number of pink salmon
returning to the Squamish system is expected to be low for the next few years
due to impacts from the August 5, 2005 caustic soda chemical spill that
occurred in the Cheakamus River. This closure action will be re-evaluated
throughout the season.
