Noel Gyger reports. Weather had been good until we were hit with heavy rain on Saturday. Fishing for Chinook (King) Salmon, Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Dolly Varden Char using both fly, spin and conventional gear has been good. The Skeena River has been rising all week and is not fishable. It’s time again to fish the clean seams that flow in from the cleaner tributaries. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is too dirty to fish. The Kalum River is high and in good shape and fishing for Chinook (King) Salmon is fair. The Kitimat River has stayed high all week but still fishable on most days but blew-out on Saturday, the day I chose to fish. Chinook are coming in good numbers. Fishing the outer waters for Chinook and Halibut is good. The main run of Chinook are coming into the river now. Fishing in the bay is good. Crab (Dungeness and King) fishing is excellent. Ocean Chinook fishing in Prince Rupert is good. Fishing for Halibut is good and so is trapping Crabs and Prawns. Jason Munday in Terrace reports anglers are wishing the Skeena River would clean up so they can get out and fish for the big Chinook. Marvin Reid from Mezidian North reports lake fishing is good.
