Weather mostly sunny with highs to +13 degrees Celsius. Just the weather we need to help shape up the rivers. Skeena River is not in good shape around Terrace but may be borderline fishable by the weekend. Go west; we think you will find better conditions. 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 come into this water to clean their gills. Reg: you can only fish for Chinook below the Highway 16 bridges. Kalum River is in good shape both lower and upper ends and the Steelheading is fantastic! To me, this is the BEST time to fish this river. Go get em! Chinook will be coming into this river anyday now and then you can catch both Steelhead and Chinook on the same day. WOW it doesn’t get any better than that! Guiding started on April 1st. Zymoetz (Copper) River is fishable. The upper end closed Dec 31. One can fish only in the lower end now. Reg: No fishing above the sign at the transmission line crossing (below Zymoetz Canyon), Jan 1 – June 15. Upper Lakelse River is fishing well for Steelhead. Kitimat River is fishing well for Steelhead and Trout. I have a report a good number of Steelhead are in the river this year. Ocean fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Prawn and Crab is still good out of the ports of Kitimat and Prince Rupert.
