Author Topic: Fraser hits an all time temperature high

A buddy at work told me that on the drive in today on CKNW, it was announced that the fraser hit an all time temperature high of 21.5 degrees. Estimated in river sockeye mortality of 32-40% IS EXPECTED TO GO UP DRAMATICALLY!

All you heros flossing springs right now, please put your rods away...I have never been as sure as I am now that out side of sockey season (when there's retention) we should not be flossing the fraser!

did any one read the front page of the chilliwack paper yesterday, the group of fishers that caught and killed the sockeye ( $150 ) fine was given, does anyone know more of what they were trying to demonstrate against.... very curious ....

That was Operation BBQ (I am not joking). It was organized by a bunch or different representatives (sports fishers, guides, tackle shop owners etc). They announced that they would kill one sockeye after the sport fishery was closed...this was to protest native LEGAL and illegal openings that were happening when sport and non aboriginal fisheries were closed. DFO ticketing that guy and not ticket illegal native fisher (be it for drift nets or fishing out side of openings) proves the fraser is a RACE BASED fishery. Had they not tickted the guy then it would have proven DFO's inability to police ANY fisheries group.

just curoius on what the the conservative party's mandate for DFO is if they ever get elected. are they in favor of this race based fishery or are they gonna set off fireworks and do what is fair?

this summer i was approached by my different friends (none of them is a sport fishermen) at least three times to buy sockeyes from first nation guys for $10/fish

i can only assume the real size of the problem, but from what we see every day on the fraser i won't be surprised if it is substantial.

my understanding is that dfo has little possibilities preventing natives from illegally selling fish.

so the question is - maybe there should be penalties for buying fish from natives?

believe it or not, there is. their fishery is intended for personal food consumption. any fish bought from any unlicensed seller is considered an illegal act, punishable by law. unfortunately, there's not enough CFO's to monitor and catch people in 'the act'.
