September 13, 2017 Recreational Fishery Opening; First Nations FSC Fishery
Chilliwack, BC – The Fraser River Peacemakers would expect that anglers will be respectful of First Nations fishers this weekend on the river. Through our cooperative efforts with Fraser River Sportfishing Alliance we are requesting the same consideration from First Nations. As this is the first recreational opening weekend we would sincerely hope it will be a peaceful cooperative fishery for all.
Just a heads up that there will be a Beach Seine FSC fishery this weekend both Saturday and Sunday September 16 & 17 at 0700 – 1700 hours each day.
Every Crew will be assigned a monitor that will track all kept and released target species (Pink, Chinook, Chum and hatchery marked Coho). Sockeye, Wild Coho, Steelhead and Sturgeon must not be retained.
There will likely be limited effort but thought it would be good for the Peacemakers to be aware of this and share this as required. The formal license should be available later today.
