Recreational Fishing Allowed on Skeena Again

John Crawford

Recreational salmon fishing is once again being allowed on the Skeena River.

With returns better than pre-season estimates, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is allowing SOME recreational fishing of sockeye, pink and coho.

In a notice posted on the Fisheries and Oceans website, the department says anglers are being allowed to catch two sockeye and two pink salmon per day until September 15th -- this applies to certain mainstream waters.

For coho, the limit is four per day -- but only one or two over 50 centimetres, depending on which side of the CN Rail bridge in Terrace that you're fishing on.

Recreational chinook fishing remains prohibited.
