Not too many people on the banks and a lot of beat up chums in the shallows today. Short floating a jig or wool in the faster water was still working . One of the males just hammered a jig and put up a good fight. I just kept one male for the smoker. I didn't see any coho caught but the fisheries lads were seining for chinooks in the Toilet Bowl and the coho were probably spooked.

They took the coho as well. I believe they got 32 today but on friday they got 70 something. They come in the morning but by afternoon the fishing picks up again.

When fisheries nets areas such as the "toilet bowl" on the Stave, they are collecting fish for the hatchery program...it's basically a mass brood stock collection.

The "seine" net is a type of net that is used to corral fish into a small area. It is a selective harvest process that allows them to release any fish they don't need, unharmed. The chinook and coho collected in this method will then be transported in holding tanks likely to the Fraser Valley trout hatchery, or another facility and used to seed many of our local rivers for the years to come.

Hope that helps,

I used to help Inch Creek net ho's in the Stave for a few years when I was involved with the salmon enhancement program. where do you think most of the Norrish fish came from?? Just as brood stock from the Harrison feeds the Vedder system.

They said they will be netting everyday this week. They only transport the coho now as they said that transporting the springs is just to much. They bonk the springs and collect the eggs at the river and they also milk the males right there as well. They then cut the springs in half and toss in the spawning channel.

They arrive around 9:30am and start their netting shortly after that and they are usually gone by 11am. The fishing usually picks back up in the toilet bowl by mid afternoon.
