Fishery Notice

Category(s): RECREATIONAL - Salmon
Subject: FN0636-RECREATIONAL: SALMON - Region 2 - Retention of Pink, Chinook and Chum Salmon in Non-tidal Waters of the Fraser River

Effective 00:01 hours Friday, August 31, 2007 until further notice fishing for
Pink, Chinook, Coho and Chum salmon is permitted on the non-tidal Fraser River
from the Mission Bridge upstream to the Highway No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC.

The daily limit for Chinook salmon is four (4) per day, only one of which may
be greater than 62 cm.
The daily limit for Pink salmon is two (2) per day.
The daily limit for Chum salmon is two (2) per day.
The daily limit for Coho salmon is zero (0) per day.

The daily limit for Pink salmon will be reviewed when an in-season run size is
available for pink salmon.

At this time there is no recreational fishing permitted for Sockeye salmon.
The purpose of the no fishing restriction is to ensure sufficient sockeye
escapement for conservation purposes.

While fishing for Pink salmon in this area, the Department requests that the
recreational community take every measure possible to ensure that their fishing
activities are not impacting sockeye salmon.

Additional measures to protect Interior Fraser River Coho will be announced via
a separate fishery notice. In addition, a recreational retention fishery for
hatchery marked Coho salmon is anticipated to be announced in mid October via a
separate fishery notice.

Variation orders 2007-317; 2007-318; 2007-319; 2007-320.

Notes:

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

Barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal
waters of British Columbia. This includes all species of fish in the Fraser
River.

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.
