Salmon River , Steelhead B.C.

Apparently B.C. Hydro have decided in their wisdom to ignore their legal obligation and promises to provide ease of passage to spawning salmonoids to the upper Salmon River on Van. Isle. The decline in the wild Steelhead run on this once very productive fishery and home to the largest Steelhead on the Island ( in excess of 30 lbs. ) has been well documented. Local Salmon foundations, the Steelhead Society along with Gov. Fishery departments have been meeting with B.C. Hydro for years and had reached an agreement to what would have been to enable these fish to access suitable spawning areas previously denied due to an ineffective fish passage way designed and built and designed by Hydro years previously. When is the DFO going to use their legal clout and force these illegal actions to cease. I would hope with the change in Federal leadership and closer enviromental concerns that these sort of actions could be reversed, we can only hope.
