The government of B.C. is re-opening angling for streams and rivers in the Okanagan Region due to lower water temperatures and increased flows.
Effective Sept. 16, 2015, all streams and rivers in Wildlife Management Units 8-1 through 8-8, 8-12 through 8-15 and 8-23 through 8-25 are re-opened to angling in accordance with 2015-2017 Freshwater Fishing Regulation Synopsis.
The decision reverses previous closures on the Similkameen, Kettle and West Kettle Rivers and tributaries (July 15), Middle Shuswap River (July 30), and Okanagan River main-stem (Aug. 6). All of these closures were put in place to protect fish stocks due to low flows and high water temperatures.
