[singlepic id=2171 w=320 h=240 float=]Noel Gyger reports. One paragraph summery for those who are too busy fishing and do not have the time to read the full report.
Weather was good all week and the temperatures are warming up.
The rivers are rising and some are staying in shape. This is just what we need to
pick up the fishing. The Skeena River is in borderline shape and â€œstainedâ€ with a little
brown colour. This river usually has a good run of spring Steelhead. I have reports
of some good catches of bright spring fish. So get out there and try your luck. The
Trout and Dolly Varden Char are available year round. The Kalum River is in good
shape both upper and lower. Steelhead fishing is excellent. Chinook should be
coming in. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is in borderline shape and fishing for Steelhead
is slow. The upper section is closed for fishing January 1 to June 15. The
Lakelse River is in good shape and fishing for Steelhead and Trout is fair. The Kitimat
River Is producing Steelhead but the catch numbers are not what they should be
during this time of the season. With the rising water more Steelhead should be
coming in. Smithers Lakes are included below for the first time this season. Douglas
Channel; more boaters have been enjoying the stock abundance of the Douglas
Channel. Many are enjoying the Crabbing and Prawning while others are venturing out
further for Halibut and Bottomfish. See Important Halibut Information below. Prince
Rupert; there has been lots of activity on the water in the past week with fishermen
reporting numerous Chinook showing up in the high teens to mid twenties.
