Salmon Season in Full Swing

Salmon season is in full swing in the Rigolet area.

Everett Allen of Rigolet recently took advantage of his salmon tags.

He says that he spent the last four days getting his catch.

Allen says that residents in the area have been getting great catches.

The fisherman caught one salmon that was 22 pounds.

Others that he caught were between 15 and 18 pounds.

Allen says he was joined on his fishing trip by residents of Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Rigolet is known as an area for great salmon fishing.

Many residents of Upper Lake Melville (ULM) are known to travel to the area to make use of their salmon tags.

Allen says that he’s expecting many more ULM residents to travel to the area to claim their catch.

He adds that the salmon seem to have come around a little later this year.

He believes that this may be due to the late break-up of the ice.

Each beneficiary is entitled to 7 salmon.

The salmon season ends on August 31.

You can visit your local conservation officer to claim your salmon tags.
