The Summer run sockeye are starting to build in the marine areas. It is expected that a marine sport fishery (perhaps at the Banana (mouth of the Fraser)) will open as early as August 1, 2014. More news in the next few days. We were out there this morning and saw about 20 dolphins but not a lot in the way of fish.
During the big run of 2010, the Fraser River test fisheries during the last week of July had 2 net totals ranging from 63 to over 112 sockeye. The increase happened quite quickly and by August 14, 2010 the two net totals jumped to as high as 266. This week , July 27th, 2014 to be exact, the highest two net total is just 49 fish and August will officially arrive this week end. It's a hopeful hint but there is still a ways to go for an in river fishery. Here's hoping!
