The weather has started to break with temps just above the freezing level this will slowly see the ice off the rivers. The Kalum river is closed Nov 15 to guiding until April 15 at which point most of the summer and winter steelhead will be spawning, I recommend leaving these fish un-harassed to lay their eggs for future generations. however the main stem Skeena will have great fishing for some monster steelhead as well as the spring chinook. March,April,May the Kitimat river is fishing well Large Steelhead start there migration into the Kitimat river in March & the Runs build from there on. April,May – You can expect to hook Steelhead & Chinook on the same day.

We are looking forward to seeing the end of winter as it has been a cold one.  Tying flies and preparing for fishing shows has been passing the time quickly. The Lakelse river is another options being lake fed offers some fantastic Steelhead fishing through February and March be sure to check the regulations on open and closed areas as well as bait restrictions, Fly Float,Spin – eggs no eggs, etc.
