DFO – No Change Expected in the Short Term
DFO has said that there will be no change to “morning fishing only” in the near future. They will monitor the situation closely next week but are looking for cooler days and cold night (12-13 degrees) before any change to the closure can occur. Pierre Belanger, DFO Resource Management Advisor, expects by the end of next week a decision will be made but we may not see an opening until the last week of August.
I am a little disapointed that the hours have not been changed to 6:00-11:00 A.m. as it is not really daylight @ 5:00 A.M.
Also it is very difficult for me to get fishing at the present hours as I have to travel 1 1/2 hours to get to my fishing spot.
The projected night time temperatures are looking favourable this week & the season is running out fast on many of the streams acessible to me, i.e. Sept 15th.
I was really hoping to get out this week.
