DFO Preliminary Outlook

Canadian Princess Resort - February 9, 2005

Welcome to the first Reel Report of the 2005 season!

Through out the season, we'll be posting the latest fishing news from the west coast of Vancouver Island direct from the resort and as it happens.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans' preliminary salmon outlook for West Coast Vancouver Island fishing is looking really good. Hatchery Chinook stocks are expected to be strong, and anglers can expect a year as good or even better than 2004.

If you weren't up here last year, be sure to read through some of last season's Reel Reports to get a sense of what that means. Basically, 2005 is going to be full of big salmon, big halibut, and lots of fun!

Tight lines!
