This is a reminder that, as noted in the 2009-2011 British Columbia Freshwater
Salmon Supplement, the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River and the Harrison
River are daylight hours only from July 1 to December 31.

Daylight hours only refers to one hour before sunrise to one hour after
sunset. Reference to sunrise and sunset means the times for those events as
calculated by the National Research Council of Canada and published daily in
the Vancouver Sun and Province.

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

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
