DFO reopens some salmon rivers as weather conditions improve
The Department of Fisheries and Oceans reopened a number of salmon rivers Tuesday in Newfoundland and Labrador, citing improved water levels and weather conditions.
Last week, DFO closed dozens of rivers to salmon anglers due to scorching temperatures and a lack of rainfall.
Anglers said this summer has been one of the worst in recent memory for hot and humid temperatures, making it hard to catch salmon.
Weekend rainfall helped get some water levels back to normal.
Most of the rivers opened to anglers are located on Newfoundland's east coast and Burin Peninsula.
