Went out yesterday on the Fraser below mission bridge, limited out in about 3 hours between two boats

Can't imagine fishing from the shore shoulder to shoulder like that, what a joke

I rather stay home then fish shoulder to shoulder. A good amount of fish are being caught all over, you just have to get your lines in the water. I haven't been to pegleg since the last sockeye opening and the sheeer amount of boats is insane. Walk-in access at pegleg really is a gong show. I didn't believe it until I saw it first hand yesterday and I'm used to seeing idiots fish. Good luck to all the fisherman that plan on fishing today. If I wasn't busy, I would totally be out there today.

Haven't been to Sapperton in a while, so gonna check it out today. Go for a Sunday drive. I heard somewhere that they changed the entry to the gated docks. I've had people pm me where they can get fish and Sapperton is the closest without going native, Granville Island, or Steveston. Will post later on, specifics, when I get back.

It's likely flash-frozen salmon from the big freezing centre in Delta, brought to the docks, thawed, and sold as fresh.

No, they fish right there, between Patullo and Brunette. Buddy who's at Langley, fishes right under the Port Mann up to just before bend leading to Mission Bridge.

Anyway, just got back. No boats anywhere, and the dock I went to years ago has been taken down. A newer concreted dock is further down river and it looks like it's their new home. No boats. Entry to the road where the docks are has not changed.It is between Richmond Avenue and Cumberland on the river side of East Columbia. Blink, and you miss it.


EDIT: I think I wasn't clear in my previous post. I just wanted to see the changes to the dock, not to buy any fish.

If you guys like eating fresh sockeye salmon, enjoy it and take part in making sure it is something enjoyed by future generations.

Make sure to keep our rivers clean. Dispose of oils and chemicals properly. I cringe when I hear of people doing oil changes and draining the used oil down the sewers. Stop the introduction of invasive species into our rivers and streams. Stop buying/eating farmed Atlantic Salmon, until they do it right - tanks instead of pens in open water. Report poachers. Throw back fish that are undersized.

We are so fortunate to have one of the best tasting fish right here in our backyards. I'm no tree hugger, but we all need to do our part.

I was out getting fish from fishermen this morning. One of them thought it was noon to noon, but dude who has connections said 8:00 am to 8:00 am. Just eavesdropping.............

Hey, if any of you are looking for work, they're looking for deck hands. Pencil neck geeks and whiners need not apply. Hard worker not afraid of getting dirty - cussing and swearing an asset.

Another reason for buying whole fish - salmon roe!

Ikura or sujiko.

Chum roe is most sought after of salmon roe and brings in the big bucks, but spring roe is just s good. Sockeye is brighter red but smaller. You gotta know how to prepare it though.

Also, for you sushi freaks. Don't forget to freeze. You can't/shouldn't eat fresh raw salmon or tuna. Must be frozen to kill any bacteria/parasites. Some good info on Internet. Just google.

Fish heads are a delicacy to a lot of Asians. I don't like it, but many say it's the best part, as well as area near gills. Nothing goes to waste. My favourite part is the skin and the fat just under it. Fried/grilled salmon skins, ftmfw!

^Costco stand up freezer.

Always wanted a vertical one, but have enough traditional ones that still work at home. Didn't check the energy ratings. Then again, my old freezers are probably inefficient.

If any of you are going to go get some fish, remember to bring a cooler and some ice. Hot weather like today, fish will cook before you get home. If you ain't got no ice, take cooler into a McD's and ask them nicely to fill it up for you. I always have a fin in my hand when asking (almost waving it, LOL). They cannot charge you, but a fin or two into the Ronald McDonald House charity bin will get you enough ice to keep them suckers cold.

Hey, you end up with lots of cheap ice and the proceeds go to a very good cause.

I've only had one McD's refuse to give me ice. That's because the icemaker was nearly empty.

The most efficient freezers are chest freezers because you don't need to pump the coolant up to cool. However they are bad for your back.

For those who store sockeye for the winter.. get a vacuum sealer from Canadian tire or cheaper from American costco..

Treat the fish with some dignity and forethought (ie don't just freeze the fish whole). Cut the fish up when it is still fresh, into portions and pack them.. I have been using the vacuum sealer for the last decade or so with good results (I trim the fins and bones so they won't take up space and puncture the plastic pack).

Prices keep falling, as expected.

It's a catch (pun intended) 22 for the fishermen. Hoping for good season, then getting so much it drives prices down, because supply and demand.

I feel for the fishermen. Salmon prices they get from packers and canneries haven't change much over the years, but fuel prices and gear has done nothing but go up. Caught in the midlle.......... damn gotta stop that pun shit, LOL.

Another opening next week......... possibly Tuesday. Not confirmed yet.

First Nations Salmon Economic Opportunity 12 hours opening tomorrow for Musqueam and Tsawwassen 8-8. I think just seeing Asian C9s in their Chanel pumps sorting / selecting fish with their broken English, also ditching their cars while parking on band land is nearly hilarious enough for the drive.

Fish sold out so fast, if you don't show up on time or when the boat docks you are out of luck. Like today, the place I went to sold out 3 minutes after start (3 tubs worth of salmon were sold). The next few hours I will be gutting / processing 30 fish.

T&T doesn't really have good salmon, thank goodness Mainlanders don't particular like them. Superstore ones are gill net caught, they are decent but the price is actually higher than hipsters stores like Daily Catch (which they would fillet, seal and all that jazz for you too). For those who live in apartments but like to store some for the winter I think DC is the least painful way. The store has to make a living too!

The decision for opening for next week is tomorrow.

To flash freeze at home.. go to Praxair.. eg the one on Clark and Grandview Highway (underneath the skytrain bridge). Get a jug of liquid N2.

Put safety goggles on, pour the N2 into a small tray enough to fit the sashimi in, dunk the sashimi into it.. take it out.. that's it.. fish has been flash frozen and essentially the water molecules in all the parasites had expanded and killed them off. Pour the N2 back into the can and reuse for next time.
