[singlepic id=2402 w=320 h=240 float=]Noel Gyger reports:
Weather has been cooler than normal all week. This is good as most rivers
are now fishable, some only borderline. The Skeena River has been dropping since
June 10 and is now borderline fishable. There should be good numbers of Chinook
(King) Salmon migrating up river to spawn in their native waters. Sockeye fishing has
started. The Kalum River is high but in good shape. A few anglers are heading out to try
their luck fishing for Chinook (King) Salmon. The Zymoetz (Copper) River is high and
borderline fishable. Chinook should be coming in. Kitimat River: Fishing for Chinook has
been slow in the lower section of river. The run that came through with last week’s high
water has quickly moved up. It’s safe now to drift down from Sawmill. The upper
stretches of river are probably your best bet until we get another good push of fish. River
level is way down, conditions are excellent, clarity in the lower river today was almost
five feet. Douglas Channel: I have reports of Chinook landed “out front” in the bay.
Prince Rupert: I have reports of good Chinook fishing. Bottom fish and Crab have also
been good. Check the full report for details fishing the Chatham Sound area near Prince
Rupert. Meziadin: Marvin Reid reports fishing has improved greatly since his last report.
Smithers area: Rainbow Alley: Water high, fishing is good. Big fish moving in. Should
start to see some dry fly action. Minnows still working well!
