[nggallery id=810]Tracey John Hittel reports. November has arrived and with that so does the snow. Our Steelheaders are dwindling in numbers and Steelhead are resting comfortably in their pools for the winter. Our final group of the season reeled in a fresh run of Steelhead and as you can see in pic 1,
Our second pic is of Yuji first time steelheader with another lower Skeena hog taken on a Pink Intruder I tied the night before, priceless.
Pic 3 is a nice male steelhead hooked and landed by Hajime, the night before he landed a nice steelhead in the same run so first thing the next morning, Hajime walked down into the exact same spot, fishing a red flash fly and boom! textbook steelheading. His words were, this is incredible Steelheading.
Pic 4 is a shot taken by guide Ariel, the see thru fin of a fresh steelhead is just another example of the elusiveness these steelhead possess.
I visited our vessel at the MK Marina yesterday and talked to local angler Darcy who was going out for a winter spring using downriggers and trolling gear. Yes we love our fishing here in the north and look forward to a hopefully mild winter.
Bookings for 2013 are coming in each day as primetime spots fill up the fastest. We had another great season and are quite happy to say that when we started our business in 2001 we have operated without a injury or a lost time accident. Considering the multitude of rivers and boats our guides operate, at times inches of water and rocks to maneuver enroute to paradise.
