are reaching lethal limits for fish. 

Effective July 22, 2015 at 00:01 hours until further notice, all non-tidal 
rivers, streams and sloughs in management units 2-2 to 2-12 and 2-16 to 2-19 
are closed to angling, excluding the following: 

- Fraser River, 
- Chilliwack/Vedder River, 
- Harrison River,
