Our good friend Noel Gyger reports. Weather mostly sunny with highs to +25 degrees Celsius. Hot weather is causing just about all the rivers to go out of shape. Skeena River is very high and dirty and won’t be fishable by the weekend. Go west; we think you will find better conditions. Tip: try fishing the clean water of the Skeena tribs such as the Kasiks, Extew and Exchamsiks where they join up with the Skeena, theory is the Chinook come into this water to clean their gills. Reg: you can only fish for Chinook below the Highway 16 bridges. Kalum River is very high but still fishable in both lower and upper ends. The Steelheading is fantastic! To me, this is the BEST time to fish this river. Go get em! Chinook are in the river and you have a chance to catch both Steelhead and Chinook on the same day. WOW it doesn’t get any better than that! Guiding started on April 1st. Contact Noel via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to book a guide. Zymoetz (Copper) River is very high and dirty. The upper end closed Dec 31. One can fish only in the lower end now. Reg: No fishing above the sign at the transmission line crossing (below Zymoetz Canyon), Jan 1 – June 15. Kitimat River has been fishing well for Steelhead and Trout but the river is coming up and getting dirty. I have a report there is a good number of Steelhead are in the river this year. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn and Crab is still good out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert. If you would like to book a river fishing guide or ocean charter for 2015 contact me anytime. Good luck this weekend.
