Noel Gyger reports. Mix bag of weather this week with rain and snow but milder temperatures. Excellent weather for winter Steelheading. The Skeena River is in good shape but full of ice flows. Steelheading is over. There might be some Trout available. The Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is fair. The Lakelse River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is good. Lake ice fishing has started. Beware of thin ice with during the warmer weather. The Trout fishing on the Kitimat River continues to be very good for the anglers who are venturing out. We received rain, snow, and then some mixed rain and snow this week but the river conditions remained excellent. I spoke to Lori at MK Bay Marina today and she reported that there was very little activity this week in the Kitimat Harbour. There were a few boats planning to get out this weekend. Prince Rupert has fantastic Winter Chinook. With the approach of the 18th annual Marc (Dezi) Desautels Blue Knuckle Fishing Derby there has been lots of activity on the water. Everyone seems to be getting out and trying their luck and for the most part it has been paying off. With the great prize money and fantastic door prizes donated by local merchants towards this Charitable Event tickets are selling fast. With limited tickets printed your chances of winning are excellent. Donâ€™t delay, get your tickets today before they are gone. If you would like to book a comfortable, warm Charter Boat for Winter Chinook and Dungeness Crab in Kitimat or Prince Rupert please contact me anytime. There is a New! guiding and fishing destination for 2011 being developed in the far northwest of BC and Alaska Rivers where you can fly or spin fish for Salmon, Steelhead and Trout until your arms drop off. This week guide reports came from Ron Wakita, Ariel Kuppers, Tracey Hittel and Jeff Carlson. Thank you to the fishing guides who sent reports and photos. It is very much appreciated!
