Woohoo

Now I can get out and use all the bar gear and plugs and kwikfish that I bought for fishing springs. And get the fly rod out for the pinkies. Better get the boat cleaned out and ready to rock :happy: :happy:

Wasn't crossable last Wed., Ask Chilliwack Search and Rescue who had to rescue a couple off the roof of their truck. Hopefully the driver is charged by MOE for polluting fish habitat.

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.

Well thats great! Yeah! You know Im sure the reason they did this is because you can start fishing for springs on Sept 1 on the Harrison and I bet if they did not open the fraser - it would be an absolute gong show on the Harrison - Glad they decided to do this. Now if only this Pinks would show their face :thumbup:

Strange how they opened it up and still no notice in regards to leader length. Let's hope the the ones inclined to floss will think twice, seeings as dfo wont hesitate to shut it down due to non compliance. Wishful thinking I know, Yee Haw it's Humpy hunting time again :yummy:
Cheers,

Hey Crazy Drifter

I think you may be just kidding yourself about those inclined to floss thinking about it, a buddy I used to fish with stopped by tonight and him and the guys he fishes with are all set to commence the BB first light on Friday. There is just no convincing some people, same old excuses as to why and that it doesn't have any adverse effect, you know same old same old.. :wallbash:

The pinks are just starting to show,,no large numbers yet ...
All the people bbing will be catching sockeye most probably..
I hope search and rescue is ready,,it could be a very very ugly weekend on the Fraser..
I may sneak out once but we'll see....The rabid crowds scare me as its usually us guys with the boats that end up rescuing the goofballs that go for an unplanned swim.....
At least I will go prepared if I go at all...
Hint to all boaters...use your PFD's and take a heaving line with you that floats,,,you may need it this weekend... :thumbup:

I'm sure this means the try to catch pinks with out using 12 ft leaders while bottom bouncing! Just don't bottom bounce for the at all, there are other ways to catch them,Spinners Spooms, Jigs, Fly Fishing! Just avoid being a beak like everyone else and don't bottom bounce for your fish! :thumbup:
