October on the Fraser

In a conversation with a Canadian Angler who also is a commercial fisher he told me the main reason that they have the October Chum Salmon opening in the Fraser was so that the fisherman could draw another quarter of Unemployment benefits. He said it was alot more money in UE beneys than anyone ever got from Gillnet prices for Chum Salmon. The web is always tangled some times around the truth other times around the fish!
