DFO Regs.
To whom it my concern

RE: page 10 and page 17 of the printed guide states (There is no limit to the number of fishing rods a licensed fisher may use in tidal waters).

I have some concerns about the publishing of Regs and updates.
A few Notes and Page Links below.

Regarding notice below.
How many Lines (Rods) for salmon or fin fish. One for salmon and one for sturgeon or just one for all (Fin Fish),what is it. Make it more simple to understand. Don't need any more confusion.

Note Placement of notice above at Bottom of page. I think it is more important than to be placed at bottom of page.

Region 29 updates. How many pages do you have to revue from 2 years prior. For a newbie in 2008 try to find this correction or others and what if you don't have internet one would not know you printed an error in the guide.

One more statement not correct about number of rods. Please fix misleading statement by not clarifying Fraser River saltwater in rod qty regulation. I can see not republishing guide but after 2nd season with the same guide maybe an insert note with important publication revisions of errors could be added by vender's and correct your web site for god sakes.

Holy Crap after 3 hours of delving into this site finally found this page seems to Clarify All. Needs to be more simple, found this in drop down menu at very bottom of page under of all places (Fraser River limits) on my list of links, 2nd link from top.

Site seems to have no fluidity in planning. It seems to bounce around the tree layout from far right field to left field.

My 2 Cents Thanks

I have had trouble locating info on the site as well. Can you imagine how the computer nerds felt trying to take direction from the morons at the DFO on how they wanted the layout. Its just embarrassing the level of common sense is so low at management in any gov position.

This is the response I received. No direct help what so ever just a form letter.

Thank you for your email dated 16 July 2008, requesting information on the British Columbia Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Guide/Freshwater Salmon Supplement 2007-2009.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada's Recreational Fishing - Pacific Region program provides information on recreational fishing regulations, seasons and area openings and closures, including closures due to red tides and paralytic shellfish poisoning in British Columbia and the Yukon.

In addition, the program administers tidal waters sport fishing licences and salmon conservation stamps for a network of vendors, who sell them to the public.

The program issues freshwater sport fishing licences for the Yukon.

Please contact the Recreational Fishing - Pacific Region program for more information.
