Anglers can pursue sockeye at Lake Osoyoos in anticipation of a strong return

Those planning a summer fishing trip to Lake Osoyoos – just south of the 49th parallel along the U.S.-Canadian border marked with large fluorescent orange signs – can now keep sockeye now through Oct. 15.

A strong run of sockeye is expected to return above Zosel Dam where spawning escapement of wild fish are expected to be achieved.

The minimum size limit is 12 inches for sockeye with a six sockeye daily limit. Release all other salmon, and statewide freshwater gear rules are in effect.

Between now and Aug. 31, 2014, anglers may fish with two poles under the two-pole endorsement. Anglers must also release all sockeye with colored anchor (floy) tag attached.
