One last blast of Sockeye Coming
There is still one last large run of Sockeye holding out in the Strait of Georgia and likely it will start to move into the Fraser any day now as the charts indicate this may have started. In anticipation of this the salt water fisheries have been open to commercial boats who still have sockeye quota left. It's not certain if an in river fishery will be opened as a First Nation fishery will close around noon on Thursday. If there are no more commercials for a few days the upriver fishery around Chilliwack could see a boost for the weekend with good weather, good sockeye, chum and spring numbers providing a late stocking stuffer for the Barbecue crowd.
Some early coho got into the Vedder and a few were picked up by the fishermen who knew about them along with some spring salmon. The rain forecast is mostly for some dampness not a good drenching to encourage more fish into the river for the weekend. So it never hurts to try the early morning pools for some fresh coho.
