BC fisheries synopsis input deadline near

Anglers encouraged to review proposed regulations, offer comment by Dec. 16

There’s still a couple more days for West Shore anglers and other interested parties to provide input into proposed changes to B.C.’s 2017-19 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis.

A list of proposed measures, some of which may affect fishing in local waters such as Langford and Thetis lakes, includes bait bans, hook restrictions, changes to fishery opening and closing dates and the adjustment of retention quotas to meet management objectives for native species and reduce the impact of non-native species.

The deadline for comments is Dec. 16. A complete list and description of the proposed regulations can be viewed online at http://apps.nrs.gov.bc.ca/pub/ahte, where you’ll find instruction on how to provide feedback.
