2016 Chum Fishery

As much as there was not a commercial sockeye fishery in the river at all this year, 2016 has turned out to be a banner year for chum salmon. Prices have been high, quality has been great and numbers of fish caught have been encouraging. Signs are pointing toward a substantial chum fishery in the river proper this year as well, which is good news for local fishers.
