Sockeye salmon return to the Fraser River Add to ...

With an estimated 25-million sockeye expected, this year's Fraser River run could be the strongest on the river since 1913. The bounty is especially welcome after a disastrous 2009 season when a little more than one million salmon made their way back to the river. A 32-hour commercial fishery on the river started at noon on Wednesday, August 25, 2010. It will be followed with an aboriginal fishery over the weekend of August 28/29.
