Thanks. By the way, are they showing up though?

Answer is here, check the websites instead of relying on second hand reports that can get you in trouble.

How will a website tell me if the sockeye are in the river or not?
Fishslippers

test net reports

Click on the Albion chinook daily catch, select year 2011, scroll down the list to sockeye and click. so far only 10 have been caught

something is wrong with albion. they aren't catching anything yet according to fred's tackle, the vedder is full of sox (no retention of course).

probably nothing wrong with Albion tests, look at how high the river is compared to last year at this time. The Fraser is 8+ feet higher. Don't rely on what they say at Freds, remember they are there to make MONEY so they tell anglers what they want to hear, there's lots of fish!

Not just freds; a cpl of guys i fish with say the chedder is dirty with socks. so that means they in the fraser? anyone around hope can verify?

albion is a spring test set and uses larger mesh(sox squirt through).You dont need to to bb pinks.They bite.

the sox are in the river rightnow (probably early stuart and adams river runs), we just have to wait till fisheries thinks enough have made it to there spawning grounds. then if fisheries thinks theres going to be enough fish left over, they might open it up for us to fish. as for your question, when are we going to fish for them? i would think if we are going to get a sockeye season this year it wouldnt open till mid to late agaust. this year has a historic low return so i dont think it will be a long season, maybe a week or two thats even if they do open it.
abe

on the other hand. if you go BBing for springs you can probably cath and release some sox at this time, also theres more springs in the river now than in agaust so your odds are higher to get that big spring early than getting it late.
