Steelhead Report Kitimat, BC Canada.

Posted on May 3rd, 2010

tracey_john_hittel_graphicTracy John Hittel reports.  The last weeks have been a roller coaster ride for our Steelhead anglers. Low water conditions have kept the Steelhead in the sea as the Kitimat and Skeena Rivers are at a trickle. Nonetheless the guys are hardcore and attached are some of the latest pictures include repeat client, Hunter the American Tennis Pro and his partner Mark the bomber, as well a close-up of a pink fly with a Steelhead on the end of it. I caught this guy at the take-out this morning as I did a juggle for the guides.

The Steelhead are hiding in the deep log piles and trying to stay clear of the Bald Eagles and in fact one was not so lucky as he was pitched from the river and became the meal for a Eagle to enjoy.

Things may be looking better as the Killer Whales were in the Kitimat Arm this past weekend as well anglers spotting the odd Chinook running the fast rapids. Water temperature is fine at 42f-45f.

I expect the next bump in river level will produce those early Chinooks as well enjoy our peak Steelhead run for the Kitimat, Kalum and Skeena Rivers.

Our Saltwater charters start this May for Pacific Salmon and Halibut as we venture to the West Coast of BC targeting the Salmon’s annual migration home.

This weeks guests are from, USA, England and Japan.
