RECREATIONAL - Salmon

Subject: FN0511-Recreational - Salmon - Region 2 (non-tidal waters of the Fraser River) - Fraser River Spring (age 5-2) and Summer (age 5-2) Chinook

Further to FN0489 the in season prediction of Chinook returns to the Fraser
River through June 15th is approximately 47,000. Given the uncertainty about
the in season estimated return to the Fraser River, the Department plans to
implement management actions consistent with zone 2 after July 15, 2012.

Specific management actions announced previously to protect Fraser Spring 4-2
chinook will remain in effect until July 15, 2012 when greater than 70% of the
Spring 4-2 Chinook run has entered the Fraser.

All retained Chinook must be at least 30 cm.

Effective at one hour before sunrise Monday, July 16 and until one hour
after sunset Friday July 27, 2012, in those waters of the Fraser River in
Region 2 (non-tidal Fraser) the daily limit for wild or hatchery marked chinook
salmon is one (1) per day with a minimum length of 30 cm and a maximum length
of 77 cm.

Effective one hour before sunrise Saturday, July 28 and until one hour
after sunset Friday, August 31, 2012, in those waters of the Fraser River in
Region 2 (non-tidal Fraser), the daily limit for wild or hatchery marked
chinook salmon is four (4) per day only one of which can be greater than 50 cm.

Effective one hour before sunrise Saturday, September 1 and until one
hour after sunset Monday, December 31, 2012, in those waters of the Fraser
River in Region 2 (non-tidal Fraser), the daily limit for wild or hatchery
marked chinook salmon is four (4) per day only one of which can be greater than
62 cm.

This is also a reminder that fishing for salmon in the waters of the Fraser
River in Region 2 are open during daylight hours only. Consult your local
newspaper for sunrise and sunset times.

I have never seen a chinook salmon caught that was less than 50cm. Are those for the jack chinooks?
