Salish Sea Salmon Challenge: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022

The Southern Vancouver Island Anglers Coalition is holding the Salish Sea Salmon Challenge on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022. This event is a fundraiser for SVIAC’s chinook enhancement projects and advocacy work.

At September 1, the 80 cm size limit for chinook is removed for the areas generally fished for this derby, and you may retain up to two (2) chinook per day over the minimum size limit and subject to your coastwide annual allowed catch of chinook. If you fish the waters of Sooke or the Victoria waterfront, we encourage you to support SVIAC and this derby!
