Sockeye Salmon run looking excellent, Terrace, BC.

Posted on July 2nd, 2015
GET READY to catch lots of these Skeena River Sockeye Salmon. Fisheries and Oceans Canada is predicting an average to above average Sockeye run this year. Looking at the Sockeye numbers so far, even though it's a little early, they are only a little less compared to last year. The rumour is that this year's run of Sockeye, will have larger fish on average.
GET READY to catch lots of these Skeena River Sockeye Salmon. Fisheries and Oceans Canada is predicting an average to above average Sockeye run this year. Looking at the Sockeye numbers so far, even though it’s a little early, they are only a little less compared to last year. The rumour is that this year’s run of Sockeye, will have larger fish on average.

Noel Gyger reports. Sunny with highs to +31 degrees Celsius. Even with this hot weather most rivers are staying in shape. Skeena River is in good shape around Terrace and Chinook are being caught…and so are Sockeye. Anglers can still go west where the water will be even cleaner. 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 and other fish come into this water to clean their gills. Reg: you can only fish for Chinook below the Highway 16 bridges. Kalum River is high but still fishable in  both lower and upper ends. Upper end is closed for Chinook. You can fish for them in the lower end only. Contact me via e-mail noel@noelgyger.ca if you wish to book a guide. Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape and Chinook are coming in. Lakelse River Bridge is now starting to produce Chinook. Kitimat River Chinook run has started and some nice ones are being landed. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn and Crab is still good out of the ports of Kitimat, Stewart and Prince Ruper.
