Terrace, BC Fishing Update.

Posted on May 2nd, 2011

[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 “stained” 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.
