The daylight hours are shorter and the weather has certainly cooled off but both salt and freshwater fishing continues around Campbell River. Dressing warm is the main factor to having a fun day fishing at the lake or shore fishing on the local rivers. The boat traffic is down this time of year but salmon fishing opportunities still go on in the fall and winter months and sometimes getting out in the following weeks can […]
In the past few days I have been asked to respond to a Telegram column by Paul Smith dated July 13th and advocating the benefits of hook and release of Atlantic salmon. (“A debate that should not be.”) This gentleman travelled to Russia to fish the Ponoi River. It’s not cheap to travel that distance from Harbour Grace.

The Hare Bay angler was salmon fishing in the area of the old bridge on Traverse Brook, approximately two kilometers from the main road, along the old highway, with a group of friends on Sunday evening. After a couple hours of fishing, his friends moved on from the area, but Davis decided to make one last attempt at landing a salmon before angling closed for the day and darkness set in.

For federal waters within the Yukon-Delta National Wildlife Refuge — from the river mouth to Aniak — the opening ends Sunday at midnight. Above the Johnson River, nets can’t be longer than 150 feet.

The lower Columbia River will close Friday evening to spring chinook salmon fishing, a day earlier than expected. The closure, from the mouth to Bonneville Dam, includes steelhead and shad. Oregon and Washington biologists met by phone Thursday afternoon and ordered the closure after accelerated catch rates the past several days pushed the early season sport allocation to nearly its limit of 7,515 hatchery salmon. By day’s end Friday, the projected catch will be 7,404, […]
