I was at the Vedder this weekend to witness this atrocity.

I stood and watched fisherman stand shoulder to shoulder along the banks just outside the hatchery, and many were well upstream of the fishing boundaries.

They were illegally camped all along the river banks with makeshift fire pits amidst the forest.

One would not dare comment to the throngs about the illegal practices for fear of being thrown in the river.

The sad thing is I stood and watched for 2 hours during the prime fishing times and did not see one conservation officer.

This has got to be one of the single biggest hot spots for illegal fishing and everyone knows it ... why no c. officer?

I go fishing every year to Alberta on the Crowsnest River on opening day. I have been there three straight years and three straight years I have been stopped by a c. officer and asked to show my licence and my tackle.

In fact, I have been fishing in BC for nearly 15 years and not once have I even seen a c. officer let alone be stopped by one !!!
