BC Steelhead Fishing Warming-UP

Posted on March 31st, 2009
Jesse Houston holds up a brigth, fresh-run Kitimat River steelhead he caught on March 25, 2009 on a pink plastic worm.

Noel Gyger reports that they have been getting nice weather all week in northern BC.  The spring melt-off from the mountains has not started yet so the rivers are pretty clear.  Despite low water conditions some of the guides are doing well putting their clients onto some trophy steelhead.  Both the upper and lower sections of the Kalum River are in good shape and water is very low, almost too low for jet boats, so it’s drift boat and inflatable time.  The lower Zymoetz (Copper) River is still holding a few Steelhead and has attracted a fresh fish.  A few fish are bing caught there by fly anglers.  A few anglers are now starting to fish the main Skeena River looking for the spring run of steelhead.  In the meantime lot’s of Cutthroat and Dolly Varden Char are keeping anglers busy while they work to get a steelhead on.
