Kitimat, BC and area fishing update.

Posted on September 25th, 2013

[nggallery id=908]Tracey John Hittel reports. Well here we are, late September and the steelhead are tricking into the Skeena system. As I write this report a hard snow, has capped all the local peaks from the last few days of hard rain.

While we were halibut fishing yesterday it felt like buckets we’re bring poured on you at times, a downpour for sure.

Fortunately we were within range of a soothing hot springs, after landing 3 nice halibut. The halibut season will remain open till the end of the year so that’s awesome news for us here on the pacific.

Saltwater coho fishing has also been quite productive this time of year and I included a few pics of the fresh haul we guided our clients into lately.

The whale watching has been nothing less than spectacular, pods of humpbacks have enjoyed putting on displays, and one group was contacted by BCTV News regarding the footage.

As for prime time Steelhead fishing the Skeena system is in perfect shape, with average numbers returning, as we target the lower system, all fish are sea lice fresh.

Arriving guests this week are from the USA, Japan, Alberta and France.
