Read it again!!!
It's open for salmon except coho and sockeye between the Mission rail bridge and two triangular white
boundary signs located on opposite sides of the Fraser River approximately 3 km
upstream of the confluence with the Harrison River and there is a bait ban.

BUT

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.

it's a very confusing Notice becuase it also says this:

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.

i think basically the notice is saying you CANNOT fish between the white triangles (3km upstream from the Harrison) to the HWY 1 bridge in Hope, BC

Below these white triangles you may fish selectively for Springs and Chum however there is a bait ban in this area

this is what i get out of the notice and hope thats lamen terms enough for people to understand :beerchug: if not let me know and i will re-read the notice and retry explaining LOL

Thanks Hook your definition of the notice makes the most sense . It would be a lot easier if they just said from aggissie bridge to hope bridge no fishing for salmon .

be carefull how you word this

as it really says
You may not use bait when fishing for salmon.
You can use bait for other fish ie dollies, trout, sturgeon just not salmon
so not a full bait ban
I think it should say a bait restriction
unless i read it wrong ???

Britguy i think when it says Bait "BAN" then it means you cant even use bait for other species except maybe sturgeon as they can tell if your fishing sturgeon because of the gear used and areas you target :confused: I would really like to have the bait part of this cleared up though.
