SOCKEYE NON-RETENTION BY AREA AND TIME:

In the following portions of the non-tidal Fraser River and during the times
listed you may not retain sockeye salmon.

- Effective 00:01 hrs Thursday, September 7, until further notice, from the CPR
Bridge at Mission upstream to the Highway No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC.
- Effective 00:01 hours Saturday, September 9, until further notice, from the
Highway No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC upstream to the confluence with Sawmill Creek.
- Effective 00:01 hours Wednesday, September 20, until further notice, from the
confluence with Sawmill Creek upstream to the Alexandra Bridge.

SELECTIVE CHINOOK AND CHUM FISHING AREA AND TIME:

Effective 00:01 hrs Thursday, September 7, until 23:59 hrs Monday, October 9,
in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from the CPR Bridge at Mission, BC
upstream to a line drawn between two triangular white boundary signs located on
opposite sides of the Fraser River approximately 3 km upstream of the
confluence with the Harrison River (downstream of Jesperson's Bar):

You may not fish for coho salmon.
You may not fish for sockeye salmon.
You may not use bait when fishing for salmon.

You may selectively fish for the following species:
- Chinook salmon, you may retain up to four (4) per day, only one of which may
exceed 62 cm.
- Chum salmon, you may retain up to two (2) per day.

Note: An "adult chinook" in this area is defined as being over 50 cm except
from September 1 to December 31 when an "adult chinook" is defined as being
over 62 cm.

During this critical migration timing for Interior Fraser coho, the
recreational community is requested to fish selectively when fishing for
chinook and chum. The first principle of selective harvest is to avoid
catching non-targeted stocks. This means that anglers are requested to use
angling methods that do not catch sockeye or coho.

NO FISHING AREAS FOR SALMON BY DATE:

Effective 00:01 hrs Thursday, September 7, until 23:59 hrs Monday, October 9,
in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from a line drawn between two
triangular white boundary signs located on opposite sides of the Fraser River
approximately 3 km upstream of the confluence with the Harrison River
(downstream of Jesperson's Bar) to the Highway No. 1 Bridge at Hope, BC, you
may not fish for salmon.

Effective 00:01 hours Saturday, September 9, until 23:59 hrs Sunday, October
12, in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from the Highway No. 1 Bridge
at Hope, BC to the confluence with Sawmill Creek you may not fish for salmon.

Effective 00:01 hours Wednesday, September 20, until 23:59 hrs Sunday, December
31, in the non-tidal waters of the Fraser River, from the confluence with
Sawmill Creek upstream to the Alexandra Bridge, you may not fish for salmon.

Notes:

There is an aggregate daily limit of four salmon per day from all tidal and
non-tidal waters of the Province.

Barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal
waters of British Columbia. This includes all species of fish in the Fraser
River.

Anglers are requested to release any hatchery marked sockeye. These fish are
hatchery raised sockeye and part of a recovery program designed to increase the
numbers of Cultus Lake sockeye.

The term "hatchery marked" means a fish that has a healed scar in place of the
adipose fin.

Sport anglers are encouraged to participate in the voluntary Salmon Sport Head
Recovery program by labelling and submitting heads from adipose fin-clipped
chinook and coho salmon. Recovery of coded-wire tags provides critical
information for coast-wide stock assessment. Contact the Salmon Sport Head
Recovery Program at (866) 483-9994 for further information.

Did you witness suspicious fishing activity or a violation? If so, please call
the Fisheries and Ocean Canada 24-hour toll free Observe, Record, Report line
at (800) 465-4336.

For the 24 hour recorded opening and closure line, call toll free at (866) 431-
FISH.
