Noel Gyger reports. We are in a heat wave. Highs on Saturday expected to reach 34° C or approx. 86° F. Fishing for Sockeye, Chum, Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, Bull Trout and Dolly Varden Char using fly, spin and conventional gear has been fair to poor depending where you are fishing. The Skeena River has been dropping all week and is extremely low but fairly clean. The Skeena River is a very big river so low water usually does not hurt the fishing, in some ways it improves it. Sockeye fishing is good if you know the how and where to fish for them. Limit 2 per day, 4 in possession. Steelhead and Coho fishing is excellent. It is not uncommon to catch both Steelhead and Coho on the same day and throw in the odd Pink. The Kalum River is in good shape. Steelhead and Coho are coming in now. The Kitimat River is exceptionally low. 20 foot high tides have moved Coho into the river. Pink and Chum fishing remains fair to poor. The Douglass Channel is producing excellent numbers of Halibut and Coho. The Harbour fishing is starting to improve. Crab (Dungeness and King) fishing is excellent. . The Zymoetz (Copper) River is clean enough to fish. Summer-run Steelhead are moving in.
