Just had to post this featured image again of a beautiful, full color Skeena River “keep-em-wet” Steelhead.
Noel Gyger reports. Chance of showers with highs to +16 degrees Celsius. Skeena River in good shape and I have reports of Steelhead are being caught along with Sockeye, Coho and Pink. Tyee Test Fishery showing a record run of Steelhead this season – this is good news. Hope this trend holds! Coho run is way down this year. Kalum River is fishing slow for Coho but good numbers of Steelhead are showing up; good time to try and catch Steelhead and Coho on the same day. Both fly and spin fishing are working well. Kitimat River is in good shape. Water has been too low for too long and not many Coho coming in. Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean and I have a report of Steelhead being caught on a skating dry fly. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn, Dungness and Alaska King Crab is fair out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert.
