Chinook Salmon retention: Unchanged for Summer 2019!
Recently Fisheries and Oceans Canada has made some regulatory changes affecting Southern British Columbia fishing areas. In an effort to address the Fraser River Chinook Salmon decline, measures have been taken ahead of the 2019 summer season to try to support a recovery of the Chinook salmon and reverse this declining trend.
The affected area encompasses most of Southern British Columbia, however fishing in the Central Coast remains open and will proceed to operate with the same restrictions as previous seasons. We will continue to support Fisheries and Oceans Canada by always fishing responsibly and strictly following their regulations in place throughout the Denny Island fishing area.
As always, we invite you to come experience a season at Shearwater in the beautiful Great Bear Rainforest. Have a look at our packages and find the perfect option for you!
