Effective immediately and until further notice, the following portion of the Seymour River is closed to fishing for salmon: Seymour River from the slide area (approximately 400 metres downstream of the old "Twin Bridges" site) downstream to the top of "Pool 91", located immediately downstream of the Pipeline Bridge. This order is made in conjunction with a Provincial order. The result of these two orders is a complete angling closure in the listed waters. This closure is in response to a rockslide in Seymour Canyon and put in place to protect migrating salmon stocks in this system.
