Noel Gyger reports. We had normal winter weather this week which usually means good Steelhead and Trout fishing. Skeena River is in good shape but full of ice flows and frozen over in spots. Be very careful walking on the ice ledges! There may be some Steelhead wintering over in some locations. The Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round. Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent. Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead is slow. The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st. Lakelse River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair. Lake ice fishing is good. Beware of thin ice! Kitimat River: The weather in Kitimat has been a bit warmer and we have received rain rather than snow. A few hard-core Trout fishers have been out catching Trout. The Kitimat Combo is the more productive method of fishing for Kitimat Trout. Douglas Channel: The Douglas Channel was very quiet as the Recreation Halibut Season remains closed. A few boats wondered out to do a little Crabbing. Prince Rupert has fantastic Winter Chinook fishing, weather depending. 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.
