Noel Gyger reports: The weather has been a mixed bag but daytime temperatures are getting warmer. The lower section of the Kalum River is very high but in good shape. Chinook are in the river and the Steelhead are spawning. The mainstem Skeena River is too dirty and not fishable. A good place to fish is at the clean seams where the tributary rivers flow into the Skeena, i.e. Extew, Kasiks and Exchamsiks. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is too dirty to fish. The Chinook are coming into the Kitimat River now. The Skeeena Is too dirty and not fishable. Fishing the clean seams of the tributary rivers is a good idea. The Kalum Is very high and in good shape. Fresh early run Chinook (King) Salmon are in the river. The Steelhead are spawning and should be left alone. In the Kasiks it is now possible to fish for Chinook at the mouth, in the clean seam, where it joins the Skeena. Sometimes the Chinook come out of the Skeena and into the clean water in search for scent of their home river. The, steelhead fishing on the Kitimat River has dramatically dropped off this week which is typical for this time of year. In fact the Steelhead Season this year has extended longer than normal I suspect because it started later.
