The Fraser River Panel met Monday, July 28 to discuss assessment data on the
Fraser sockeye runs and plan harvest opportunities.

Recent assessments indicate a decrease in the marine migration of Fraser
sockeye has occurred in recent days. At the meeting today, the run size
estimate of 500,000 Early Summer-run sockeye was unchanged, however, there is
concern that the Early-Summer run may be returning at levels less than this
abundance. Summer-run sockeye are currently tracking lower than their 50%
probability level forecast of 1,810,000 fish and could be near the 1,182,000
level (75% probability level forecast). At this Summer run size there would be
no available commercial or recreational TAC.

On July 27, the Fraser River discharge at Hope was about 3,900 cms, which is
substantially lower than average, while the water temperature of the Fraser
River at Qualark Creek was 17.7 Celsius, which is about 0.5 Celsius warmer than
average for this date.

First Nation:

Further opportunities for FSC are planned this week in the Fraser River. In
marine waters First Nation fisheries continue, but given low abundance, harvest
and effort levels expected to be minimal.

Recreational:

Recreational fisheries for Fraser River sockeye in South Coast marine waters
(See FN0529) and the Fraser River (See FN0528) will close effective 21:00 hours
Wednesday July 30.

Commercial:

Commercial fishing for licence Areas B (See FN0525), D (See FN0524), and H (See
FN0526) will be closed today.

The Panel will meet again on Tuesday July 29 to evaluate the status of the
Fraser River sockeye salmon runs and to consider regulatory actions.

Canadian commercial fishing regulations will be announced on the Fisheries and
Oceans Canada recorded message at 604-666-2828 (from the lower B.C. mainland),
and toll free from outside the lower B.C. mainland at 1-866-431-3474, and via
fishery notices.

I guess the short opening was too boost the sale of fishing licenses and salmon tags. LOL . I would love too see the numbers of how many they sold from the time they said it was going to open until now.

glad to hear the river is closed, although I suppose a lot of people will just keep bb for springs. When I see in the DFO notice saying how low the returns are and how the water flow is 25% below normal and the water temp is 1 degree above average, why they opened up I will never know.

I am lucky to get to the river any day I want. And last year I went to the vedder an average of two days a week (week-days) from early september until mid-december. Most of the time I was alone. I went a couple of time the w-e, and I agree it was a zoo.
