Noel Gyger reports. Weather was excellent all week. Lots of sun shine and warmer than average day time temperatures. Guided Fishing started on March 15th on the Kalum River.
The 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.
The Kalum River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is excellent.
The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in fair shape and fishing for Steelhead is slow. The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.
The 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 is iced up and snowed in. This has caused the river to be reduced to narrow channels. Despite these conditions, some anglers still went fishing. The warmer weather will help the situation. Trout fishing this week was excellent.
Douglas Channel; I have not heard anyone fishing the Douglas Channel at all this week but they will be heading out soon with the warmer weather.
Prince Rupert: With the beautiful weather weâ€™re having it looks and sounds like this weekend should see lots of fisherman heading out for some fun on the water. Everybody is getting their boats dusted off and ready for another season. Canâ€™t wait for the fishing reports to start rolling in.
