Sturgeon Facing Dire Straits Barrie Alden
Acid in the Salmon (audio) [CORRECTION: REFERENCES TO CARBONIC ACID SHOULD BE CARBOLIC ACID] Barrie Alden

"Salmon cannot smell native streams when waiting at the mouth of the Fraser River because carbon dioxide mutes their sense of smell; as well, increasingly warm water in the Fraser River can cause mortality to salmon." Barrie Alden. October 2015
Alden's Outdoors Updates
In general the fall brings salmon to BC rivers. Now is the time to get out and witness the miracle of  salmon returning to their streams of birth. Regulations allowing  Good Fishing editors note.

 

Oct 17 -- Fraser Valley - Rains bring both anglers and salmon. check out SHARP HOOKS  or FISHING WITH ROD
Oct 09 -  MTRP south Mission Bar 1.30 - 2.30pm heat of day sunny no wind no waves, 8 rods fishing roe, medium to high tide no fish in an hour no seals chasing fish no fish jumping. Alden suggests anglers go hunting. Ken Kristian from Bute Inlet Stewart Island says there's 500 sea lions laying on the bank at Jimmy Jet Island mouth of Bute Inlet patrolliing for salmon. The salmon are running the gauntlet of sea lions to get to the Fraser river. Very few coho and chum are getting through to the Fraser. Native net  fishers in Johnson Strait are half filling their boats with chum salmon. 20 million chum salmon returned to their streams in Alaska. The Fraser river salmon fishing looks bleak.
  It is high time the provincial government order the Fish and Wildlife Branch to stalk large and small mouth bass in contained lakes.
Oct 08 - Matsqui Trail regional park south foot of hwy 11 bridge. 5.30 - 6.30pm medium to high tide last setting sun, no anglers, no dead fish on bank, no sturgeon boats, no fish jumping, people running their dogs.
Oct 02 -- To date 1.5 million sockeye have returned to the Fraser, 4.4 million were expected to return. Lowest return ever recorded was in 2016 when 850,000 sockeye came back to the Fraser. Central Fraser Valley is devoid of oxygen in the feeder creeks streams and sloughs flowing into the Fraser. 20 years ago the great Charlie Miller of Mission, president of the Mission Rod and Gun club during the 1940's, was my mentor and guide in all things environmental in the valley (Charlie was here in 1908). He told me that Chester creek 2 miles west of Mission in Silverdale, where it crosses the Lougheed Hwy into the Fraser, could hold 100,000 salmon fry yearly. Since the advent of sawdust bedding blueberry farms in the valley the oxygen content from the sawdust rotting in the soil has diminished surrounding water courses. When I first moved to Mission I got a job as a truck driver working for a sawdust company out of the mission sawmills in 1974. I could not drop a load of sawdust in the flood plane or  DFO Mission office would fine the company.  Now they build roads of sawdust in the Central Valley and the oxygen content 60 yards out in the Fraser is depleted.
Sept 23 6:30pm South Mission Bar south end of Highway 11 bridge. No change -- water level   - low tide. No dead fish on bank. One spring jumped in middle of river. All breaching fish were in the middle of river. South Mission has bar gone to the dogs. People with deck chairs on the bar were sitting at water level  throwing sticks into the river for their dogs. No anglers in sight. One boat came up from the ocean with no results. Tip -- go to the mouth of the Stave river if you want fish. Chum runs starting in the Stave.
Sept 19
South end of Mission Bridge - 5 - 6:30pm one pink jumped no anglers there. Springs breached surface and one seal chased salmon -- one seagull - no dead fish on bank. Dewdney slough for coho and other salmon: use copper coloured or brass lures from shore. Trolling silver lures from boat works. Pink runs over end of September. Chums in Fraser are almost blueback colour in Sept 21 time caught on lure jensen crocodiles. 3/4 ounce chrome hammered lures from dollar store work: add  two diamond shaped cut beads in front of the lure.
Sept 14 We have an opening on the Fraser for Chinook and Chum only. There is a bait ban and no bottom bouncing.Coho,sockeye and pinks must be released. Check regulations religiously.
Sept 09 Wildlife warning update: lack of fish returning to BC feeder creeks and streams will force bears to start looking for food in human habitat. Hunters should be wary of hungry bears that are more aggressive in hunting areas where deer, moose and elk populations are open.
  In the ocean off of BC coast we can see great white sharks up to Vancouver
harbour. Sharks are going to move north for food because of devastation from hurricanes down south. Skin divers should be aware of the  6 foot long humboldt squid which can move into BC waters. The weather world is in a crisis which will have a great effect on current world predators. Timber wolves, coyotes, woverines and wild boar pigs, such as in the mountains on the east side of Harrison Lake, will attack without warning. Wild pigs rely on wild roots which are drying up because of the heat ;soil has gone to sand in some areas owing to forest fires. Consequently some of the major ocean and land predators are going to turn to man for food.
  It's time to get the BC NDP government to look at  stocking landlocked bass lakes throughout the province to replenish the fishing lakes throughout the province.
  Barrie Alden (Brian Robert Armstrong) said in 1944- 48, raised on Cardero wharf next to Bayshore property, his father fished the Vancouver inner harbour
extensively. Barrie Alden rode a 10' pram when six years old most days skipping school fishing from Cardero wharf past the 9 o'clock gun and under Lions Gate bridge with two hand lines off the back of his boat. The truant officers couldn't find Alden because he was behind the outer sea wall at the Stanley Park salt water English Bay Pool. His father David Armstrong, who worked at Mac & Mac as a salesman  in ship chandelier would take Alden in May to Hatzic lake east of Mission to catch large mouth black bass, imported from Washington state,  weighing 10-12lbs. Here his father rented a row boat from Swans Point marina at Hatzic lake and trolled two east coast cod lines with 6ft cat gut  leader towing two lucky lure plugs or carved plugs while Barrie rowed the boat. He had no fishing rods trolling the line through fork sticks on the back of boat while coiling cod line into two adjacent buckets. When the 1948 flood hit the large mouth black bass escaped into the Fraser; because black bass are a slow fish the incoming sturgeon from the ocean ate them. The sturgeon devastated the stock of black bass to Hatzic lake and they are now returning to 6 lbs size.
Sept 08-There will be no opening for pinks on the Fraser River. DFO will review again Oct 02.First Nation openings for food and ceremonial purposes. There have been reports of  First Nations selling sockeye for $15 to public ( go figure). Tackle and guide outfits like Fred's Custom Tackle expected to dwindle.
Sept 03 -- Atlantic salmon cages demolished in Washington state  -- regulations changed to take as many Atlantic salmon any time in ocean
(Washington state) Washington state anglers bagging 8 - 10 at at a  time in ocean. Natives trapped 5 - 10,000 fish. These fish appeared off Vancouver Island 3 - 4 days ago. These fish may come into the straight down to the bottom of the Fraser. It's a boon to 22 ft 6 gill sharks that inhabit the strait of Georgia. 2 - 300 ft down ie off Tswassen ferry terminal to Galiano Isalnd. Also spring salmon are closed in ALASKA -- Chinook salmon runs are going down.  A six gill shark will grab a human and go straight to the bottom of ocean. The six gill is a palagic shark and common off BC coast; they breed off BC coast to Alaska.
 
Black bear hunting is good east of Hope because the bears are hungry. They are on the move - caution for prowling bears. Anything under a 30 caliber rifle will not stop a charging  black bear. Still hunt black bear with a shotgun in BC but not Grizzly bears. Rider Lake hot for feral pigs. Open 24 hrs, Catch them at water holes 4 - 6 am.
