I fished the Cheam View Bar on the same day as the commercial opening and had a good day fishing with most people hooking at least one fish. I'm now getting very mixed opinions as to how long the fish will still be there before the "dead zone" created by the commercial fishery arrives and how long it will be before new fish show up. Can anyone help me on this?

Gill Rd

I have fished sockeye for a few years from the Gill Rd area and it consistently takes 3 days before the fishing gets "good" again after the commercial boats have been in the river. Any caught before the 3 days always have net marks on them from when they escaped. No doubt about it, there is an impact from that many commerical boats operating for only a few hours. Hopefully the DFO know their stuff to make sure enought get up to spawn.
