Fisheries Update

Fishery Notice – Fisheries and Oceans Canada Subject:  

Salmon: Region 1 – Further Recreational Angling Closures for Region 1 River Systems In 2014/2015 Vancouver Island experienced extremely low snowpack with exceptionally low precipitation during the spring 2015 period.

Water levels in many systems on Vancouver Island are now extremely low and river temperatures in many cases are reaching lethal limits for salmon migrating through these systems. Predictions are that above average summer air temperatures and reduced precipitation will continue, and likely will further contribute to elevated stream temperatures throughout Region 1 on Vancouver Island.

Effective 00:01 hours August 1, 2015 until further notice the following Vancouver Island Rivers will close to salmon angling: All river systems in management units 1-7 to 1-13. All rivers on Vancouver Island in Region 1 are now closed until further notice with the exception of the Campbell/Quinsam Rivers and the Qualicum River.
