[singlepic id=2151 w=320 h=240 float=]Noel Gyger reports. Weather was good all week but day and night time temperatures have been below average. This has caused ALL the rivers to remain very, very low. Snow pack is staying in the mountains.
Skeena River is in fair shape but â€œstainedâ€ with a little brown colour. This river usually has a good run of spring Steelhead. So get out there and try your luck. The Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round.
Kalum River is in good shape but very low. Fishing for Steelhead is good although with the low water they â€œspookâ€ very easily.
Zymoetz (Copper) River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead is fair but water is very, very low. Fish are spooky. The upper section closed for fishing on January 1st.
Lakelse River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair.
Kitimat River is very, very low, some of the locals describe it as a â€œditchâ€. We need some warm weather or some rain to bring up the water levels. I guess we should be careful what we wish for? Rising water should bring in more spring Steelhead. See Important Halibut Information below.
Prince Rupert; sorry, no report from Prince Rupert this week.
If you would like to book a comfortable, warm Charter Boat for Winter Chinook and Dungeness Crab in Kitimat or Prince Rupert with Noel, you can contact him at, www.noelgyger.ca .
