Skeena River is in fishable shape now. Zymoetz (Copper) River is cleaning up. Reg: No Fishing upstream of the sign at the transmission line crossing (downstream of Zymoetz Canyon) Jan 1 – June 15. Steelhead fishing below this closure is still permitted. Just need to find some open water and give it a shot. Kitimat River is in fair shape and fishing well for Steelhead and Trout. The Chinook are starting to come in now. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn and Crab good out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert.
