This year’s Fraser River salmon run could be biggest in recorded history

Early indicators suggest that the salmon return on the Fraser River could be the biggest in recorded history.

More than 72 million sockeye could be in this year’s run, which is more than double the previous record four years ago.┬áIn 2010, 30 million fish flooded through the river, and the sockeye this year are the spawn of those salmon.

Ocean conditions have also been good for the past three years.

It is being called the fishing of a lifetime, and many in the industry say they are excited to get on the water this summer.
