Smithers, Terrace, Kitimat and Prince Rupert, BC Fishing report.Posted on March 17th, 2010
Noel Gyger reports. Weather was fair during the week but now we have wind and rain. Many anglers are fishing for Cutthroat Trout, Dolly Varden Char and Steelhead using both fly, spin and conventional gear. The water is very low. The fish are spooked so a stealthy approach is needed to catch them. Using smaller terminal tackle is a good idea also. The lower end of the Zymoetz (Copper) River is fishing good for Steelhead and Trout. The Kalum River is fishing fair for Steelhead. The Kitimat River is in good shape and fishing fair for Cutthroat Trout. The odd Steelhead is being caught also, more and more are coming in with every high tide. Check out the Ron Wakita report below. Winter Chinook fishing in the Kitimat Harbour and Douglas Channel is poor right now and is weather dependent. Winter ocean Chinook fishing in Prince Rupert is good when the weather is good. The Smithers anglers are itching to fish for Steelhead. Jason Munday in Terrace reports a few Steelhead landed on the Kalum River and good Trout fishing on the other rivers. The main stem Skeena river is getting some action for Steelhead. There is a possibility to hook a Chinook also. The fishing guides are preparing to start their season tomorrow, March 15 on the Kalum River. Guiding is allowed on the Kalum River from March 15 to October 15.
