Further to FN1161 and FN1179 the coast-wide returns of Chum salmon have been very poor and the current in-season estimate for the return to the Fraser River is 769,000. According to the South Coast Salmon IFMP, at this run size commercial fisheries are suspended and recreational fisheries are restricted to tributary systems where surplus is likely to occur. Therefore, the daily limit for Chum salmon is reduced to zero (0) effective one hour after sunset, Sunday, October 28 until December 31, 2018 on the Allouette River, Harrison River, Stave River and Nicomen Slough. In addition, the Chehalis River will not open on November 1 to the retention of Chum. The opportunities for hatchery marked Coho and Chinook salmon remain open at the limits identified on the DFO website at: http://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/fm-gp/rec/fresh-douce/region2-eng.htm Variation order 2018-RFQ-0579 Notes: The aggregate daily limit for all species of Pacific Salmon (other than kokanee) from tidal and non-tidal waters combined is four (4). There is an annual limit of 10 Chinook over 50 cm in non-tidal waters There is a minimum size limit of 30 cm for Chinook caught in non-tidal waters. Single barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in non-tidal waters of British Columbia. Sport anglers and guides are reminded to label and submit heads from adipose fin-clipped (hatchery-marked) Chinook and Coho salmon to the Salmon Head Recovery Program. Recovery of coded-wire tags from recreational fishers provides critical information for coast-wide stock assessment.
