Noel Gyger reports. Mild weather at the beginning of the week but colder on the weekend. This is excellent weather for winter Steelhead and Cutthroat Trout fishing. The Skeena River is in good shape but full of ice flows. Steelheading is over. There might be some Trout available. The Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is fair. The Lakelse River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is good. Lake ice fishing has started. Beware of thin ice during the warmer weather. Kitimat River; the river conditions were excellent the latter part of this week and there were lots of Trout being caught. Please dress warm, the temperature has dropped but the Trout fishing can still be very enjoyable if you are properly dressed for it. Douglas Channel; Winter Chinook are very unpredictable during this time of year. The Winter Chinook will roam around looking for baitfish. The baitfish eventually wander into the Kitimat Harbour and the “Bites back on”. Stay Tuned! Prince Rupert has fantastic Winter Chinook fishing.
