Want to try your luck at hauling in a sockeye salmon while fishing on Osoyoos Lake?
You’ve now got about 10 days.
Fisheries and Oceans Canada has opened the lake to fishing the salmon through August 13 — although a review at that time of “in-season information on sockeye abundance, harvest and environmental conditions in Osoyoos Lake will be conducted to determine if the opening might continue.
Fishing for salmon will be allowed during daylight hours only, north of the Hwy. 3 bridge.
Anglers can catch and keep up to two sockeye per day.
If you’re going fishing for salmon in non-tidal (fresh) waters — including Osoyoos Lake — you’ll need a Non-Tidal Angling Licence, issued by the Province of British Columbia.
Visit the provincial website to buy your licence. Licences are available to B.C. residents and non-residents. Fees may vary and are listed online.
