The river is completely open except for a small salmon closure from the top of the hatchery lagoon to the power lines that are located 500 meters upstream from the top of the lagoon. Starting to see a lot of Steelhead and that should get going very soon. We have a few good days with the fly this past week and once the rains come this weekend we will switch over to gear.
Opportunities & Regulations
This fall there is Chinook and Coho retention opportunities in the Stamp and Somass Rivers.
The daily limit of Chinook is one per day, which must be under 77cm which is about 15 pounds. The possession limit away from your permanent place of residence is twice the daily limit. Big Chinook must be released. Bait is allowed to be used in the river this year within certain sections. This will be a great bonus in getting into some quality Chinook! Gear fishing or fly fishing both are permitted.
The daily limit for Coho is 2 per day, with 4 in possession.
Moderately on the high side for this time of year.
