Noel Gyger reports. Weather has been fair and on the cool side. We’ve had a little rain but not enough to do any damage. Most rivers have stayed in shape. A lot of the snow pack is down. Fishing for Chinook (King) Salmon, Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Dolly Varden Char using both fly, spin and conventional gear has been excellent.

The Kitimat River has been fishable all week. Chinook are coming in steady with average tides. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape and fishing for Chinook is good. Fishing “out front” the Kitimat Bay (Douglas Channel) for Chinook is good on days when it is not too windy. Fishing the outer waters for all specie of Salmon and Halibut is good. The main run of Chinook are coming into the river now. The main run is peaking. Crab (Dungeness and King) fishing is excellent. Ocean Chinook fishing in Prince Rupert is good.
