Important Chinook update for the 2019 Fishing Season!
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (D.F.O.) has announced its 2019 regulations for Chinook salmon. Esperanza inlet (included in management area 25) remains open for retention of 2 Chinook per day, 4 per trip. What has changed is the off shore areas have been revised to be non-retention of Chinook until July 15, 2019.
Esperanza inlet - It is part of area 25 and is OPEN for the entire season. This sheltered area has many excellent spots to fish for Chinook from the beginning of June right through the end of September.
Off Shore Area - The offshore area is NOT closed to fishing. Halibut, ling Cod, rockfish and hatchery marked coho salmon can still be retained. Chinook Salmon can be fished for up until July 15th but must be released if caught. As of July 15th offshore areas will also be open to Chinook retention of 2 per day.
