Fish Seized on the Thompson River as part of Fishing Closure Investigation
Merritt CO's recently seized 26 rainbow trout as part of an investigation into two men who are alleged to have fished during a closed time on the Thompson River. None of the fish were over 50cm which would have put the fish into the steelhead category. CO's were patrolling as part of a Fresh Water Fisheries Society of BC Project enforcing the Thompson River angling closure. The fishing closure is in place to protect steelhead.
