They may be a little bit late, but make no mistake, the salmon are coming.
Sockeye by the millions are currently on the way through the Johnstone Strait into the Strait of Georgia and into the mouth of the Fraser River.
Some smaller runs have already arrived in the river, but recreational anglers, First Nations fishers and commercial harvesters are watching closely for what could be the largest run of this iconic species of salmon in many years.
“Everyone is buzzing in anticipation of the salmon,” says Cheam fisherman Darwin Douglas. “Last year was a very poor year and this has been the top since 2010, the last big run.”
The Cheam Fishing Village is excited for the Sto:lo Business Match on October 28th and 29th at the Ramada Inn in Abbotsford, BC. Cheam First Nation will be participating to grow and explore current and potential business opportunities.
