BC Sockeye are running strong.

Posted on August 25th, 2016

Noel Gyger reports.  For most people, Sockeye fishing on the Skeena River is outstanding. The featured image this week is of  local angler Ray Barker-smith with a nice fresh Sockeye landed a few days ago. We would like to thank his wife Marlene White for sending us the pic.

Connor Sabo with a fresh Skeena River Sockeye landed August 7th. He was fly fishing with a 12', 510 grain rod with a 20 foot shooting head with 12 foot of lc13. The Sockeye run is larger than last year but still below average.

Conditions: Mix of sun and cloud with highs to +22 degrees Celsius. Kalum River closed for Chinook August 7; Steelhead will be coming in soon. Note: Kalum has 4 runs of Steelhead, fall, winter, spring and summer.   Skeena River in good shape and fishing good for Steelhead, Sockeye, Coho and Pink. Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean and Steelhead are moving in.  Kitimat River in good shape and Coho are coming in, especially in the lower end. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn and Crab good out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert.
