Anglers fishing for salmon in areas that are open to salmon fishing are
required to take every measure possible to ensure that their fishing activities
avoid impacts on sockeye salmon. Any sockeye encountered must be released with
the least possible harm. The Department is continuing to monitor the Fraser
River to ensure compliance.

Recreational fishing opportunities for trout, steelhead and sturgeon and other
non-salmon species in this area remain open.



Barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal
waters of British Columbia.

Sport anglers are encouraged to participate in the 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
toll free at (866) 483-9994 for further information.
