BC Winter Fishing Update.

Posted on December 12th, 2018

Feature images show saltwater salmon and halibut catches.

Noel Gyger reports. Chance of a shower with highs to +5 degrees Celsius. Skeena River is low and still in good shape despite the rain we are having. Water is very low please be careful if you fly around in a jet boat. Coho fishing closed October 31st. Tyee Test Fishery showed a record run of Steelhead this seaon.     Coho run was way down this year. Kalum River is in great shape and fishing well for Steelhead. Both fly and spin fishing are working well. Water is very low and dangerous for jet boat…so go with drift boat or raft only. Be safe my friends! Kitimat River is closed to Salmon fishing. Zymoetz (Copper) River has had a good rain but conditions are holding and many Steelhead are being landed. In the upper Copper Steelhead fishing will close December 31st. One will be able to angle for them in the lower end. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn, Dungness and Alaska King Crab is good out of Kitimat.
