Kitimat BC, Steelhead fishing report.

Posted on March 6th, 2013

A great week as arriving guest Don Stewart from Calgary Alberta flew in from his 1030 flight and by 2pm he landed his first ever Steelhead on the fly! He joked that he would be emailing his son by 5pm with a Steelhead, guess it was a bit early.

Don was using his single handed rod for this large Steelhead and landed it like a champ. Don then wanted to try the Spey and has now become a trained student as he landed a nice chrome Steelhead on a 7wt. The last week has been very productive as Steelhead are entering the systems in large numbers as fish caught are well into double digits.

Speaking about double digits a super size male steelhead was landed today by 8 yr old Ethan. After being taken into his backing twice and now asleep with a throbbing thumb from the reel handle spinning uncontrollably from the epic battle, well worth the effort, and thanks to dad for the hook up with a Pink Articulated fly tied by Ariel. March madness has definitely arrived and the sign of spring is upon us.
