    Exclamation Chinook Feedback Summary March 2019

    Summary of Feedback Received by DFO in consideration for the 2019/2020 Chinook Management Approach March 2019

    https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link...c-b72dfbb1bb44
    Have a look at the numbers here folks. The NGO's are ruling the day, with a full 74 % of the input to date.

    Then take a look at the various key issues identified by each group.

    By any stretch, the recreational fishing sector is floundering.

    Get your letters in ASAP if you want to fishing at all down the not-too-distant road...

    There are some good suggestions what to include in your letter here: https://www.sportfishingbc.com/forum...equired.73642/

    I was going to post something.
    Good to see.
    ive submitted mine and asked anyone I know who fishes to.
    People need to spread the word. I’m amazed at how many people have no idea this is going on.

    Exclamation Re: Chinook Feedback Summary March 2019

    This matter is going to directly effect every single person who wants to catch a spring salmon ever again.


    The ENGO's are focused and organized.


    The FN's are even more so. If you fish for salmon at all, you have more than ample reason to be nervous.

    VERY
    Nervous that is:





    LFFA: Lower Fraser Fishery Alliance


    Their letters all focus on UNDRIP and Reconciliation, as well as their court / constitutionally defined rights.


    They want it all, and screw everyone else. Period.


    Best be getting every single one you know to write in repeatedly!!


    Worried!

    The once predictable winter spring fishery off Sooke has been declining and has virtually collapsed this year, so this comes as no surprise.We’ve seen it coming but all we got was ‘studies’ with the usual conclusion’more study is needed’( why klll the golden goose?) What we needed,and didn’t get was a massive increase in the supply ,the feed was there,but no fish. Volunteers fed and released pen held smolts into sooke harbour in an effort to increase the supply,but the results are at least two more years away to see returning Chinook.Even if the DFO acted NOW by increasing the supply the results are at least four more years to see any tangible results .A complete cock up.They took our licence fees and did virtually NOTHING to help the recreational fishery that supports both local and tourism.I greatly fear the days of seeing hundreds of boats off Otter point to Sheringham at first light are just a memory to tell my grandchildren about.Fishfarms supply the commercial market so who worries about a ‘few’ sports fishermen? Looks like about the only chance to get out on the water this year will be to wait until August and get some pinks....
    As a sign of the idiocy that runs the show,remember they ordered the distruction of the water control dam that volunteers built to INCREASE the stream survival,because a massive earthquake might collapse the dam and cause flooding downstream?( the same idiots shut down the campground at Jordan river because of the dam up in the hills that could break ... nobody mentioned that an earthquake of that magnitude would destroy the whole city of Victoria....

    What I find so surprising is that even when directly shown just how important these matters are, just how much of an impact they will have on every single person who fishes salmon, that so damn few actually care enough to send in a letter outlining their concerns.

    It is that exact type of behavior DFO (among others) has relied upon for decades to get their way with us.
    Humiliating, especially when it doesn't have to be this way...

    Sadly,

    Good luck. I am watching some liberal mp from Toronto give the FN all the land north of me from bella coola to Mc Bride. There goes my hunting. Squeaky FN's will now get all the salmon and sell it to the white guy. Hard to swallow how the socialist government have given the province away. How do we curb it, what affects us, but doesn't affect the people in the LML who make the decisions. Sockeye in Langley are selling for $15 a fish from the FN. Get them while you can. Sad day.
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    The worst day slinging lead is still better than the best day working.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    This whole problem could be solved by putting more fish in the system,then we can talk about wild salmon ,habitat ,allocation to FN and all the other issues,but FIRST get more fish in the system,it’s not rocket science

    Maybe it's not rocket science but cranking out too many fish will back fire. We don't want to overwhelm what's left of the habitat, from micro-organisms to bait fish, salmon to top predators, including ourselves.

    Complex issue where unfortunately those that run things, haven't a clue. Or maybe they do and are deliberately trying to F things up.
