Noel Gyger reports. It has been extremely cold over the last week and a half. Daytime high temps were just too cold for fishing. It has warmed up now and winter Steelhead and Trout fishing is back on.
Skeena River: Water is barely fishable. Lots of ice flow in the river . Some great Steelhead can still be had, plus some good Trout Fishing. Be careful walking on the ice near the edge of the river. Reg: all wild Steelhead everywhere in British Columbia are catch and release.
Kalum River: Both the lower and upper sections are in good shape. Watch for ice shelves in the deep pools. A good run of Steelhead is in the river now.
Lakelse River: The water is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead, Trout is fair.
Zymoetz (Copper) River: Water is full of floating ice, makes for tough fishing. Facts: Last year we had a record run of Steelhead, let’s hope at least we have another good run this year….so far so good.
Kitimat River: Trout fishing is fair where the river is free of ice.
