2023 POSSESSION LIMITS DFO AREA 9 – subject to changes.
Total possession limit of Salmon is EIGHT (8) of which no more than FOUR (4) can be Chinook/King salmon.
The possession limit for halibut is EITHER of: one (1) halibut measuring 35.4 in/90 cm to 52 in/133 cm in length (69 cm to 102 cm head-off), OR two (2) halibut, each measuring under 35.4 in/90 cm in length (69 cm head-off). Also at our lodge guests are permitted to retain halibut over 52 in/133 cm in length under “The Experimental Recreational Halibut Program”. This program provides opportunity for recreational harvesters to retain halibut in excess of 52 in/133 cm in length.
Due to conservation concerns there is now zero rockfish retention/possession at the Rivers Inlet Sportsman’s Club.
