Notice to all recreational fishers
We are currently updating our online data for the 2017-2018 fishing season. While this work is underway, regulations on the BC Sport Fishing Guide website are frozen and may not apply beyond March 31, 2017. Bivalve contamination information is not included in this freeze and will continue to update.
If you are fishing after March 31, 2017 it is important that you check our Fishery Notice System for up to date information about fishing limits and management measures as decisions are made.
We appreciate your patience as we carry out these seasonal updates.
