The weather has been fair all week. The most important thing is the temperatures are getting warmer and the water is rising.  Trouble is the water is rising slowly and is still too low for jet boats but rafts and drift boats are doing OK.  Fish guiding has started “big time”.  The guides are working very hard to get their clients the best guided fishing experience possible despite conditions. With the current low water this has been a challenge.  Despite poor conditions, pro guide Tracey Hittel has gotten his clients into many Steelhead.  Both upper and lower sections of Kalum River are in good shape but the water is very low. The lower Zymoetz (Copper) River is still holding a few Steelhead and a few fresh ones are coming in now.  I have a report of a few fish being caught on the fly rod and spin gear.  Most of the ice that was floating in the river is gone.  A few fishermen are now starting to fish on the main stem Skeena River looking for that spring run Steelhead.  In the meantime lots of Cutthroat and Dolly Varden Char to keep the fishermen entertained while waiting for Steelhead.
